Jussie Smollett Indicted By Grand Jury, Faces 3 Years In Prison

Empire star Jussie Smollett has been indicted for filing a false police report.

In what has become the most dramatic turn of events in 2019 so far, Jussie Smollett who started out as a victim in an alleged homophobic attack has now become a convict for staging the attack and filing a false police report.According to TMZ, Chicago police have confirmed that Jussie Smollett was indicted on a felony charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report which carries a maximum three-year sentence. Smollett was indicted by a Cook County grand jury that heard testimonies and evidence that suggested the actor staged his own attack.

The Nigerian brothers involved in the case, Ola and Abel Osundairo, testified in front of the grand jury, saying they staged the attack at Jussie’s request and were financially compensated $4000 for their involvement.

The two brothers even said that they drove around with Jussie a few days before the incident to find a location to execute the “attack.” They even said they rehearsed it. Their punishment, however, will not be as steep as Jussie’s as they are set to return to Nigeria.

Footage of the brothers purchasing supplies ahead of the staged attack was also released online.
