A Cook County, Illinois, judge has ordered a special prosecutor to review state attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s case.
The special prosecutor will reportedly review Foxx’s decision to appoint a deputy to oversee the Smollett case, saying that she did not have the authority to do so. The decision means that a special prosecutor could now decide to re-charge Jussie Smollett once again. The actor had been charged with orchestrating an attack on himself with the help of two brothers.
All charges against Smollett were dropped in late February in exchange for community service and forfeiture of his $10,000 bond payment.
