Rittenhouse acquitted on all charges

Kyle Rittenhouse has been acquitted of homicide and all other charges in Kenosha after a three-week trial.  After about 27 hours of deliberating, the jury came back with the not guilty verdict Friday morning.    The 18-year-old Rittenhouse collapsed on the table after hearing the verdict.  Facing charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree attempted intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment, the defense attorneys for Rittenhouse claimed that he acted in self-defense on the night of the shootings.   


Agencies from around the state are hoping to avoid a repeat of last summer’s unrest in Kenosha now that the verdicts have come down.  While no unrest is expected in Door and Kewaunee counties, plans are underway elsewhere in the state in case of civil unrest.  Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has mobilized 500 Wisconsin National Guard troops to be on standby just in case Kenosha experiences that occurred last summer.
