Jussie Smollett is facing more than a dozen felony charges right now.
The “Empire” actor was indicted on 16 counts of disorderly conduct after police say he lied about being the victim of a violent hate crime.
In January, Smollett told police two men attacked him in Chicago, shouting racist and homophobic slurs, and even tying a noose around his neck.
But just a couple weeks later, police say they got new evidence and suspected Smollett knew the men he claimed attacked him, and allegedly paid them to stage the attack.
Smollett says he’s innocent.
He’s scheduled to be arraigned march 14th.
