Sentencing Date Set for Disgraced Actor Jussie Smollett

A sentencing date has been set for disgraced “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

The once rising star will now be sentenced on March 10 after being convicted of five of six counts in his hate crime hoax case.

Smollett’s attorneys continue to insist they will appeal the verdict.

Last month, a report on Democrat AG Kim Foxx’s handling of the Smollett case found a “major failure of operations.”
