Judge sets $100,000 bond for Jussie Smollett
CHICAGO -- A judge has set a $100,000 bond for "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging an attack against himself in downtown Chicago last month. The 36-year-old actor said little other than giving his name at the beginning of Thursday's hearing. Smollett's attorney asked Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. to release Smollett on his own recognizance. However, the judge said that would be inappropriate.
