The hate crime case of Jussie Smollett would be on the way to court next week, according to repressive sources who spoke to each other TMZ. These sources, which are linked to the ongoing investigation, claim that the police department keeps the original suspects, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, at hand in downtown Chicago, in order to protect them from any outside influence. Apparently, they insist on blocking any contact between the Osundairo brothers and Smollett.

According to previous reports, the brothers named Smollett as part of the orchestration of the attack. Given this evolution, the measures taken to prevent Smollett from contacting them indicate a reversal. While the Chicago Police Department continued to assert that Smollett was being treated as a victim in this case, the Osundairo brothers' testimonies could be used to dismiss the complaint and even lead to Smollett's own indictment for filing a false police report.

If Smollett discovers that he has planned the script and invented his story, he could be charged with a crime, given the seriousness of the charges. The penalties for this type of false report vary between a probation sentence and a prison term of 1 to 10 years. The police have already stated that Smollett would be held responsible if necessary.

Police reportedly found torn magazines at the brother's home, which could explain the threatening letters sent to Jussie 8 days before the attack, as well as other evidence. The Osundairos were arrested shortly after the raid and released without charge.

Sources say the brothers bought the rope tied around Smollett's neck. There is no video footage to prove this purchase because the surveillance sequence is automatically deleted after one week.

This comes after Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo confessed to having repeated the attack against the Empire's actor and agreed to pay $ 3,500 out of the 4,000 pledged, to ensure follow-up of the attack.
