Empire actor Jussie Smollett was indicted on with six counts of disorderly conduct over false statements he allegedly made to the police in connection with an incident a year ago in which Smollett reported that he had been the victim of a hate crime. Smollett’s former attorney Mike Monico joins Roe Conn to explain what these new charges mean for the embattled actor/singer. Also, the three challengers running for Cook County State’s Attorney, Donna More, Bob Fioretti, and Bill Conway separately join the show to discuss why they feel this case is a stain on current Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx record in office.

Note: The Roe Conn Show has reached out to Kim Foxx’s campaign. She was unavailable, but provided a statement.
