'Empire' Actor Jussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty

Jussie Smollett  pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he lied to police about staging a hate crime.    The "Empire" actor  was indicted  earlier this month on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct after authorities said he made a false police report.  Smollett told police  he'd been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near downtown Chicago in January.

CPD investigated the incident as a potential hate crime before saying it was orchestrated, alleging Smollett paid two brothers to stage the attack.  The brothers were initially detained, but later released without charges.  Smollett has denied any involvement in coordinating the attack.  On Tuesday, a judge ruled that cameras will be allowed in court for Smollett's appearances.

The next hearing in the case is set for April 17.   Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
