Cook County, Illinois, grand jury handed special prosecutor Dan Webb a six-count indictment against Jussie Smollett,. The former Empire star is looking at the prospect of being sent to prison for up to three years if he is convicted on all charges of lying to the Chicago Police Department. The new indictment comes on the eve of the re-election of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. As reported, Foxx decided to drop all 16 felony charges against Smollett in 2019, citing lack of evidence. Some speculate that having a special prosecutor come in and review and reverse her decision could imperil Fox’s re-election chances and future political career. Jussie’s attorney, Tina Glandian, released a statement saying “the new charges call into question the fairness of the investigation.”
