Last month "Empire" star Jussie Smollett was arrested for filing a false police report after he claimed he was attacked by racist and homophobic Donald Trump supporters near his apartment in downtown Chicago [click here if you missed that].

Now Jussie is facing 16 felony counts....

From ABC Chicago
A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records.
The Cook county State's Attorney's Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday.
Smollett was originally charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State's Attorney's Office on Feb. 20.
Now the grand jury has returned 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.

That means he may be facing 16-48 years if he is found guilty on all counts, each charge carries up to 1-3 years.

He will be needing to claim addiction and mental health issues and that will fix all those charges

Each indictment carries a maximum count of 4 years in prison so that adds up to 64 years. Yikes!

It looks excessive but if you realize what he did it makes sense. He kept lying to two different offcers about the situation. That's how it increased to 16 counts by the grand jury. It also includes the the initial lie of being attacked by two white men and them saying homophobic slurs.
He ran away with the lies each time they questioned him. He lied about the threatening letter he sent to himself, another federal offense. He may only get about 3 years but it's a bad look all around for him. Damn, Jussie!
This is a lesson to all of us to be humble and grateful for what we have.
Let's not forget he spinned this whole thing because he wasn't happy about his salary. I bet most of y'all somewhere praying for being ungrateful about having a shitty job when some people can't get a job.

H's not going to jail, folks.
He'll plea to lesser stuff.
Be place on probation and will be ordered to seek treatment.

He gets arrested and has to do time for filing a false police report and the white people who have been making false accusations and calling the police on innocent black people don't get charged or arrested? That is some twisted $hit.
