Remember Jussie Smollett? Well, he's back in the news again for all the wrong reasons.

More than a year after his infamous claim that he was attacked by white supremacists in Chicago, Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a special prosecutor over that very case, Deadline reports.

Special prosecutor Dan Webb filed the new criminal charges against Smollett which will land him back in court on February 24 in Chicago facing possible jail time. The charges include six counts of disorderly conduct for his false report on the so-called attack.
