Jussie Smollett can’t seem to catch a break these days. The former ’Empire’ star’s recent run-ins with the Illinois court system doesn’t seem to be coming to an end anytime soon. The 37-year-old’s request to have the new indictments filed against him by the newly appointed special prosecutor have been denied.
Along with his request to have the recent charges thrown out, Smollett attempted to have the special prosecutor removed has well. The ruling for both requests were passed on Friday.
