Jussie Smollett arrives court where he pleads not guilty on 16-count indictment

Jussie Smollett showed up in court today for his arraignment hearing on 16-count indictment of lying to the police about being attacked.

The Empire act held his head high as he arrived Cook County courthouse on Thursday morning. He was accompanied by some members of his family as he strode quickly into the courthouse, covering his eyes with a pair of sunglasses.

The 36-year-old, who insists he’s innocent, pled not guilty to the 16 felony counts against him.

Smollett will return to court this April and will be allowed to travel between New York City and Los Angeles to meet with lawyers.

If convicted, Smollett faces a maximum of 48 years behind bars.
