Jussie Smollett’s case about an alleged attack in January could be headed to a grand jury.
Law official sources reported the case could be headed to a grand jury sometime this week, according to TMZ Sunday. Law enforcement is allegedly making sure Smollett is not in contact with the two Nigerian brothers who were first arrested Wednesday, but then released Friday.
The Daily Caller News Foundation contacted the Chicago Police Department (CPD) Monday to confirm if Smollett’s case was headed to a grand jury.
“We do not have that information at this point,” Jennifer Bryk of CPD said to TheDCNF over email.
Rafer Weigel of Fox 32 tweeted Monday that CPD said Smollett’s case could go to a grand jury if the “Empire” actor does not “voluntarily come in for questioning.”
“CPD says “it’s certainly possible” #JussieSmollett case could go to Grand Jury but “that’s way too premature,” Weigel tweeted. “May be a last resort if #Smollett doesn’t voluntarily come in for questioning. CPD says #Smollett’s lawyers have given no indication he will despite several requests.”
