Jussie Smollett has been found guilty of lying about a sickening attack in 2019.
The Empire actor claimed on Twitter that he was attacked and had a noose put around his neck by two men in ski masks who yelled “MAGA country”.
After the trial was delayed a year due to COVID, Smollett has finally been found guilty of five charges in relation to staging the incident.
Sentencing will happen during the next few weeks, but Smollett could face up to three years in prison and a $25,000 fine.
Smollett will stay free on bond in the meantime.
