Jussie Smollett Arrives for Arraignment On 16-Count Indictment

Jussie Smollett just showed up to court with the same confidence he had the other day — the big difference now … this appearance actually matters, ’cause he’s being arraigned.

The “Empire” star once again strutted his way into a Cook County courthouse Thursday with his back straight and his head held high … just like he did on Tuesday when he showed up for a procedural hearing he technically didn’t need to attend. 

He’s expected to enter a plea one way or another at his arraignment. 

As we reported … a grand jury handed down the whopping 16-count indictment last week nearly two weeks after Jussie was arrested and booked for allegedly filing a false police report. Jussie’s attorney, Mark Geragos, called the indictment “overkill.”

Regardless of how Jussie pleads … he may very well have more than his own fate in his hands. Folks working on “Empire” feel like the future of the show will very much be tied to how things shake out for him in court, and could possibly torpedo the series at large.
