Jussie Smollett indicted on 16 new charges in attack hoax case

Jussie Smollett faces 16 new charges linked to his alleged attack in January.

The 'Empire' actor was indicted by a grand jury on Friday.

Allegatons are Smollett staged the attack on himself and filed a bogus police report.

He claimed that he'd been roughed up by people who called him homophobic and racial slurs. 

When police looked into Smollett's story, they found two men who claimed that Smollett had paid them to stage the attack.

Smollett was arrested last month.
