CHICAGO (CBS) — Nearly three years after being accused of plotting his own attack, actor Jussie Smollett goes on trial Monday.

Smollett is charged with felony disorderly conduct. He is accused of lying to police when he reported that he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago.

The actor once starred on the popular show “Empire,” which was shot in Chicago, but he has stayed out of the spotlight since the infamous alleged hoax.

Jury selection is set to begin Monday.
