Jussie Smollett’s Criminal Trial Begins Today


Jussie Smollett

It looks like Jussie Smollett is going on trial today concerning the charges he lied to Chicago police about being a victim of a racist and homophobic attack nearly three years ago.  If you remember on January 29, 2019, Jussie, told police he was attacked by two men around 2 a.m. while he was out grabbing food.  He then said the men used racist and homophobic slurs, wrapped a rope around his neck, and poured an “unknown” substance on him.  Subsequent investigations, however, reportedly showed Jussie staged the attack with the help of two brothers he met at a local gym.  If convicted, he could face from one to three years in prison.
