“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has now been charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County States Attorney says.
Disorderly conduct is a Class 4 Felony. CBS 2 Legal Analyst Irv Miller says Smollett could face probation to up to 1.5 years in prison.
He is expected in bond court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest, according to a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department.
