While Jussie Smollett was indicted 5 days ago on 16 felony counts related to allegedly faking his hate attack in January in Chicago, the Chicago Police have also opened a probe into leaks in the case.

The possible leaks stem from the early days of the case from officers and officials. "I would like to point out that a lot of the information out there was inaccurate and there were numerous agencies involved in this investigation," Sgt. Rocco Alioto told Deadline.

Basically, the main reason law enforcement has started on this task is to "identify vulnerabilities", especially considering just how bizarre and unprecedented this case has been so far.

Still, this is an interesting development time wise as well as several Northwestern Memorial Hospital employees were recently fired for accessing Smollett's hospital records "without authorization". It appears then that more than a few Chicago agencies are doing what they can to tighten their belts and make sure nothing slips through the cracks with further court appearances and his trial. He will be facing 3 years in prison if found guilty.

Smollett is free on $10,000 bond. He has been written out of Empire's final shows of the fifth season, but his character has not been permanently killed off. That part is apparently dependent on what happens at his trial.
