Jussie Smollett and his attorneys entering the courthouseANNOTATION: Siblings, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, are expected to take the witness stand and testify that they carried out the attack at Smollett's behest. STORYLINE:Two brothers stand at the center of the case that prosecutors will lay before jurors when the trial of Jussie Smollett begins this week.The former "Empire" actor contends he was the victim of a racist and homophobic assault in downtown Chicago on a frigid night in January 2019.The siblings, who worked with him on the TV show, say he paid them $3,500 to pose as his attackers.Smollett arrived at court Monday for the trial. He is accused of lying to police about the alleged attack and has been charged with felony disorderly conduct. A class 4 felony, the crime carries a sentence of up to three years in prison but experts have said it is more likely that if Smollett is convicted he would be placed on probation and perhaps ordered to perform community service.Whether Smollett, who is Black and gay, testifies remains an open question. But the siblings, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, will take the witness stand where they are expected to repeat what they have told police officers and prosecutors — that they carried out the attack at Smollett's behest. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
