The other spot removed from the list that day was one of the primary charges against Rittenhouse, first-degree murder in the death of Anthony Huber. Huber was the second person Rittenhouse shot that tumultuous night in Kenosha as violence flooded the streets. In Huber’s shooting, as in all the charges against him, Rittenhouse said he was acting in self-defence.
Criminal defense attorney Sara Azari told Rittenhouse there was a jury connection CNN.
“[Prosecutors] was unable to demonstrate that his response to each of these men, to each of these threat groups was unreasonable,” she said.
“When the jury went back a few days ago and watched the video…frame by frame, they were looking at whether Kyle did something to incite the threat and whether his response to that threat was justified in using deadly force and they agreed to the protection it afforded. “
As noted by New York Times, jurors have the choice to consider charges against Rittenhouse of second-degree attempted murder or first-degree reckless murder once they consider Huber’s death.
On Thursday, jurors settled the fifth number against Rittenhouse in his favor. This is an allegation of first-degree attempted murder involving the wound of Gaige Grosskreutz.
When Kenosha Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder charged the jury, he gave them options to consider second-degree murder or reckless first-degree murder when deciding whether to endanger safety. this crime.
On Friday, November 19, the jury voted to acquit Rittenhouse of the last two charges against him. Rittenhouse faces first-degree reckless murder in connection with the fatal shooting of Joseph Rosenbaum and one count of first-degree reckless endangerment of safety involving Richard McGinnis, whom Rittenhouse shot but failed to hit. destination.
During the trial, Rittenhouse testified that Rosenbaum threatened him, chased him, and grabbed his AR-15.
“If I had let Mr. Rosenbaum take my gun, he would have used it and killed me with it and probably killed more people,” he said.
Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig said Rittenhouse’s testimony was crucial to his acquittal.
Prosecutors “pointed out some minor inconsistencies and things he said that night, and said afterward, but nothing undermined the core defense, which was that he did it.” being attacked. Every time he shoots, he gets hit,” she said.
“The prosecution hasn’t created enough cracks in Kyle Rittenhouse.”
The jury returned its verdict that day at a public hearing.
Two other charges against Rittenhouse of possession of a dangerous weapon and violation of a curfew were dismissed.
Honig said the videos allowed the jury to see the difference between what unfolded that night in Kenosha and the flawed portrait the prosecution was trying to paint.
“Trying to brand Kyle Rittenhouse as an active shooter didn’t get up and the defense came back and showed, he’s walking through the streets, he’s not shooting indiscriminately, that’s what an active shooter does, he only shoots the people who hit him first,” she told CNN.
