Brothers Told Police Jussie Smollett Behind Sending Himself Hate Letter

Brothers Told Police Jussie Smollett Behind Sending Himself Hate Letter

Meanwhile, Los Angeles prosecutors confirmed that in August 2007, Smollett pleaded no contest to three misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol. Smollett also was later charged with false impersonation, driving under the influence and driving without a valid license.

If Smollett falsified a police report, the charge is a Class 4 felony in IL, and carries a potential sentence of one to three years in prison.

While the witness's claims will surely fuel speculation that Smollett staged the incident, Guglielmi has now made clear that the tip about the trio being seen together in an elevator was "unfounded".

The actor completed the terms of that sentence in 2008 and it hasn't been a problem since now.

The details of the complaint were first reported by NBC News.

State's Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself Tuesday from the investigation surrounding "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett's alleged attack. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries. He said he was beaten, a noose thrown around his neck and his attackers used homophobic and racial slurs.

Smollett still hasn't talked to the police again after the new "developments".

- Chicago police say they've reviewed hundreds of hours of surveillance camera footage, including of Smollett walking downtown, but none of the videos show the attack.

"We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation". Smollett, who is black and gay, has said he was attacked by two masked men shouting racial and anti-gay slurs early January 29, 2019. He claimed that the men shouted racist and anti-gay slurs at him, poured a chemical substance on him, threw a rope around his neck and shouted, "This is MAGA country!"

"Many people on the left will be privately devastated but most won't apologize for false accusations and instead they will just move on to another controversy", Schiffer said.

The actor's case will now head to a Grand Jury with a focus of presenting evidence that could lead to a felony indictment against him.

According to sources close to the investigation, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo have also told investigators that Smollett paid them to help him orchestrate and stage the brutal attack outside his Chicago apartment building.
