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.
