Jussie Smollett Makes Court Appearance

Actor and singer Jussie Smollett appeared in court Tuesday afternoon for a brief hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago.

This is coming after he was indicted on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct after police alleged he staged a hate crime.

The court appearance was to determine if cameras would be allowed for his next appearance when trial will begin.

Judge Leroy Martin Jr. approved cameras for the court appearance on Tuesday, but noted that “all bets are off” once a new judge – who has final say on the issue of cameras – is assigned permanently to the case, according to Vulture.
