L.A. City Attorney: Smollett Convicted in 2007 of Giving False Info to Police

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As it turns out, reporting a fake hate crime is not the first time Jussie Smollett has lied to police.

NBC News reports that the “Empire” actor was convicted in 2007 of, among other things, providing false information to law enforcement:

As the police investigation into the alleged attack against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett continues, it was revealed Tuesday that in 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement, the L.A. City Attorney’s office confirmed to NBC News.

Smollett, now 36, was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail in the 2007 case, an L.A. City Attorney’s spokesman told NBC News.

The case is coming to light as Chicago police investigate whether Smollett made up a story about being the victim of a racially, motivated hate crime. Chicago police have requested LAPD provide them information about the 2007 arrest, according to multiple law enforcement sources familiar the investigation.

Fox 32 Chicago‘s Rafer Weigel confirmed this information with the L.A. city attorney as well:

No specifics were given on what the “false information” was, but the shorter version of this is that Smollett LIED to police in that case, just as it appears he lied to them about the “attack” he said happened to him on Jan. 29th.

Weigel also tweeted:

This is on top of reports earlier, noted by Red State‘s Alex Parker, that the two Nigerian brothers who are alleged to have been the “perps” in Smollett’s apparent attack hoax told investigators that Smollett himself sent the threatening letter to the “Empire” set on Jan. 22nd.

Smollett’s week has gone from bad to worse. The world’s tiniest violin is playing for ya, buddy.
