Jussie Smollett’s lawyer: Brothers lied about staging attack

Jussie Smollett’s lawyer: Brothers lied about staging attack

All charges against Smollett, who was accused of staging an assault on himself in Chicago, were dropped on Tuesday after the "Empire" actor forfeited his bail money and did community service.

Henson believes the "truth has finally been set free" after prosecutors decided not to go ahead with the 16 counts of disorderly conduct they had charged him with following allegations he staged a racist and homophobic attack on himself in January.

Among those sure to keep pressing for answers is Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Smollett's attorney, Tina Glandian of Geragos & Geragos, pushed back, telling "GMA" of the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, "I think if they believed the charges, they never would have dismissed the case". The alleged attackers reportedly hit him in the head repeatedly and wrapped a noose around his neck before fleeing.

Although the charges against Smollett were dropped, Foxx said in an interview with CNN affiliate WLS that she had confidence that her office could have proved him guilty.

The actor said this has been "an incredibly hard time". The prosecutor, First Assistant State's Attorney Joe Magats, said thousands of cases have similar resolutions.

Netflix rules itself out of Apple's new video service
Hastings' confirmation follows experts' prediction that Netflix may not be included in Apple's TV service. "These are fantastic , large, well-funded companies with very significant efforts", Hastings said .

The brother that was being interviewed "stated that indeed was the bottle he filled with bleach and poured on Smollett", one of the reports say.

The newly released documents say that during February 15-21, Chicago police put the Osundairos up at the Chicago South Loop Hotel.

When pushed on what incentive brothers had to stage the attacked, Schmidt said, "If you're friends, and I'm saying "Hey, I'm going to pay you for training, I'm also asking you to do me a favor" ... and the favor was to stage the attack".

The State's Attorney who insisted that Jussie Smollett received no special treatment scrambled to find examples of other cases to justify the decision a day after it was made.

Glandian may wish to brush the Smollett hate hoax under the rug, but Chicago police and the American people will not quickly forget.

The Department of Justice should investigate Kim Foxx for many reasons. Smollett addressed the media after an emergency hearing in Chicago on Wednesday, where he admitted that he's been "truthful on every level" throughout the investigation.
