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.

'We are looking for examples, felony preferable, where we, in exercising our discretion have entered into verbal agreements with defense attorneys to dismiss charges against an offender if certain conditions were met, such as the payment of restitution, completion of community service, completion of class, etc. but the defendant was not placed in a formal diversion program. "Jussie Smollett is neither one of those".

Smollett maintains his innocence.

On Tuesday, after prosecutors announced they were dropping the charges against Smollett, the attorney who was representing the Osundairo brothers told CNN, though a publicist, that the brothers had been fully prepared to testify in any criminal proceeding in the Jussie Smollett case.

The idea is to combine original content with programming from partners, including HBO and Starz. Users can subscribe to any streaming platform they like from within the app.

Prosecutors offered little explanation and infuriated Chicago's police chief and mayor this week when they dropped charges against Smollett related to making a false police report.

Foxx said even if Smollett had been found guilty for his Class 4 felony, he would face "some type of restitution, community service-not prison".

Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the police are notably upset over what they describe as a "whitewash of justice".

Although Wendy has doubts about Smollett's future in acting, she managed to find the silver lining in his situation.

Chicago police released a portion of their investigative reports on Wednesday, but said there will be no more information to come.

Windy City prosecutors said Wednesday that Foxx had only "colloquially" recused herself before her office suddenly made a decision to drop all charges against the "Empire" actor. "We're all happy for him, and thank God the truth prevailed". But she says Smollett had no idea who attacked him until the brothers were later identified by police.

She continued, "When I know someone, there's nothing you can say to make me flip on them, and that's what we miss in this world". For every black, gay person out there, we lost. Whatever happened to that?

"The two men who attacked him have indicated that they attacked him, so we already know who attacked him", Holmes said.
