JUSSIE SMOLLETT'S LAWYER SAYS ACTOR WAS 'REAL VICTIM': The Jussie Smollett trial began yesterday (November 29th) in Chicago and during the opening statements, Smollett's lawyer Nenye Uche maintained the actor's innocence. According to AP News, Uche said, “Jussie Smollett is a real victim." Uche also argued that the Osundairo brothers who allegedly Smollett didn't like him and the $3,500 check they received from Smollett was payment to train him for an upcoming music video. Uche added, “At the end of the day they want you to believe Jussie was stupid enough to pay for a hoax with a check but was smart enough to pay (for supplies) with a $100 bill." Uche also suggested a third person was involved in Smollett’s attack, pointing to an eyewitness account in a police report which identifies a white man with “reddish brown hair.” The eyewitness alleged that when the man turned away, she “could see hanging out from underneath his jacket what appeared to be a rope.” If convicted, Smollett faces up to three years in prison.
