FILE – Actor Jussie Smollett, center, leaves the Leighton Criminal Courthouse with unidentified siblings, Thursday, Dec. 9, 2021, in Chicago, following a verdict in his trial. A judge says a report detailing missteps and false statements made by prosecutors in the initial investigation of former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett should be made public. Smollett was convicted this month of lying to police in January 2019 about what he said was a racist, homophobic attack in downtown Chicago. The report to be released Monday, Dec. 20, 2021, includes detailed findings by special prosecutor Dan Webb, who took over the case after Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped charges against Smollett in March 2019.
