The prosecutor is seeking to amend Kyle Rittenhouse’s guarantee agreement. Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with killing two people during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer. They said he flashed a white light sign and “sang loudly” the proud boy. Sing the national anthem in the bar.
On Wednesday, the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion to restrict Rittenhouse’s possession or consumption of alcohol in bars or restaurants, display the white power sign, and form alliances with members of well-known white supremacy organizations.
Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, was released from Kenosha County Prison in November with a bond of $2 million, most of which was raised by conservatives through a legitimate defense fund. Currently, Rittenhouse’s contact conditions do not restrict him from entering bars, drinking alcohol, or contacting white supremacist militia groups such as “Proud Boys.”
According to the prosecutor, the request was made after Rittenhouse and his mother were found in a local bar in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin on January 5-the same day he was charged with felony homicide and other crimes related to the murder Pleaded not guilty. The demonstrators hurt each other.
The motion said that at Pudgy’s Pub, Rittenhouse was wearing a T-shirt with the words “Freedom as F***” and the “OK” sign flashing. This gesture has been adopted by well-known white supremacist groups. . According to the motion, during his 90-minute visit to the bar (filmed on security footage), the teenager was seen drinking while being sung by a group of adult men singing the proud boy’s national anthem.
According to the bill, in Illinois, where Rittenhouse lives, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to own or consume alcohol in public places. But in Wisconsin, if you live with your parents, people under 21 can bring and drink alcohol.
Rittenhouse’s lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.
Authorities said Rittenhouse went to Wisconsin to prevent the car dealer from being robbed when he shot at racial justice protesters who took to the streets after Jacob Blake shot and killed on August 23. Rittenhouse’s lawyers argued that the teenager was in self-defense.
The teenager allegedly killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber, and wounded the third man, Gaige Grosskreutz, who possessed a pistol.
The court has not yet set a date for considering the prosecutor’s request.
