Jussie Smollett Must Surrender for Arrest on a Class 4 Felony

3

The state’s attorney’s office approved disorderly conduct charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, said spokesman Robert Foley.  The charge is a Class 4 felony, which can bring a sentence of three years. Smollett is expected to appear in bond court Thursday, Foley said.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted Wednesday evening, “Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.”

The FBI is investigating the death threat letter sent to Smollett. He could be guilty of mail fraud, and that has a stiffer penalty, up to five years.

Gloria Schmidt, the lawyer for Ola and Abel Osundairo, just said her clients testified before the Grand Jury for two-and-a-half hours and laid out their story that Jussie put them up to a fake assault. Schmidt said the brothers testified separately and they have no criminal exposure.

Adam Schiff will be so sad.
