The verdict is in. Jussie Smollett has been found guilty of lying to Chicago police about being the victim of a hate crime in January 2019. At the time, Smollett alleged that he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic assault by two unidentified men, but cops accused the actor of staging the incident with the help of two brothers he worked with on Empire. Smollett has maintained his innocence ever since.
