Felony criminal charges have been approved by Cook County State Attorneys Office against Jussie Smollett for Disorderly Conduct / Filing a False Police Report. Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.

Filing a false police report is disorderly conduct, according to Illinois code. A class 4 felony is punishable by one to three years, the code says. Jussie Smollett is being charged for staging his own attack in Chicago. Authorities believe he had two Nigerian brothers help him staged his own attack.

Surveillance video obtained from a Chicago-area beauty supply store appears to show the brothers connected to the incident purchasing a ski mask, sunglasses, a red hat and other items the day before the alleged assault on the actor.

The brothers were arrested but released the same day. They have been very cooperative with the police about this investigation. The brothers were also casted in Empire for a couple of shows. Their attorney Gloria Schmidt said her clients will not be taking a plea deal or ask for immunity because they have evidence supporting their truth.

A bail hearing for Jussie Smollett will be tomorrow at 1:30PM central time, prosecutors said.
