Jussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty

According to Newser, Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty for lying to police.

The 36-year-old actor faces 16 felony counts related to a false police report.

Smollett stands accused of staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself earlier in the year.

He is currently free on bond, and is expected to return to court in April.

Smollett already faces a single count of filing a false report, but a grand jury in Chicago indicted him on additional charges.

The new charges are related to a pair of interviews he had with two police officers.

Smollett was charged with lying to both officers while they interviewed him about an alleged assault he suffered.
