Roommates, after a few days of deliberation and a contentious trial, Kyle Rittenhouse was formally found not guilty on all charges related to the shooting of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Kyle Rittenhouse has been charged with the murder of two people protesting the beating of Jacob Blake by local police officers in August 2020.
Despite being charged with two counts of first-degree murder along with four other counts, 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was formally found not guilty on all counts related to the shooting of two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin. When the verdict was read out in the courtroom by the presiding jury of 12 people, Rittenhouse became very irritable and began to cry—he also expressed his feelings by collapsing into a chair before embracing his attorney Cory Chiravese.
Additionally, just before the verdict was announced in court, Kenosha County District Court Judge Bruce Schroeder said, “There can be no reaction at all, no matter how strong you feel. Understandably, many people have strong feelings, but we can’t Allow any kind of reaction to the verdict.”
Following the ruling, several legal experts made it clear that now that he has been cleared of all charges, Kyle Rittenhouse cannot be retried in this case, as the prosecution now has to accept the fact that there is no way to appeal the verdict due to double risk.
