Actor Jussie Smollett makes brief court appearance

Jussie Smollett strutted into his hearing this afternoon where a judge ruled that cameras will be allowed for his arraignment this week, but it’s up to the case’s appointed judge to determine the use of cameras for all future proceedings. The actor confidently entered the courthouse wearing reflective sunglasses and a gray coat. A grand jury indicted the 36-year-old Empire actor last week on 16 felony counts accusing him of lying to the police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic attack by two masked men in downtown Chicago. Police allege that Smollett, who is black and gay, staged the January 29 attack because he was unhappy with his salary and wanted to promote his career. His arraignment is set for Thursday.
