Jussie Smollett’s [[ smuh-let’s ]] defense team says to expect an appeal of his conviction. On Thursday, the former “Empire” actor was convicted of five of six counts after falsely claiming he was attacked in 2019 by two men yelling racist and anti-gay remarks. Defense attorney Nenye Uche slammed the jury saying their verdict is “inconsistent.” He says he’s one-hundred-percent confident the case will be won on appeal.
