#TSRUpdatez: Decide Rides Kenosha, Wisconsin Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, Can Keep On Bail
Roommate Kenosha, Wisconsin gunman Kyle Rittenhouse, has again been given the option to stay at home despite being charged with double homicides. A judge recently ruled that Rittenhouse can be bailed as he awaits trial on his murder case that killed Kenosha protesters last year.
Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old accused of fatally shot and injured two men and injured a third during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, is being released on bail following a judge’s recent verdict. Prosecutors requested an arrest warrant and a $ 200,000 bail increase in the previously requested case after alleging that Rittenhouse violated the terms of his bail by failing to inform the court of his current address.
Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce E. Schroeder denied the motions during a virtual hearing on the terms of the bail. Schröder said that Rittenhouse violated the failure to update his address, but that this was no reason to increase his deposit.
He ordered the Rittenhouse defense team to give the court his new address. If prosecutors want information on Rittenhouse’s whereabouts, they must go to the sheriff’s office, he said. “It is not appropriate to cut ourselves off from this information,” argued Thomas Binger, assistant district attorney for Kenosha County, just before the judge abruptly ended the hearing.
Meanwhile, Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, argued that his client “wasn’t running, he wasn’t hiding.” He added that his client came to each hearing as needed. Schroeder said he did not have the authority to issue an arrest warrant because Rittenhouse did not break Wisconsin law on bail.
“I understand the concern,” said Schröder. “Now to issue an arrest warrant for a defendant who has appeared at every hearing would be against the law, and I will not do that.” As previously reported, Kyle Rittenhouse pleaded not guilty to two murder charges and one attempted murder and is on bail of $ 2 million.
