Kyle Rittenhouse case in jeopardy as lawyers seek mistrial
The Guardian says The murder case against Kyle Rittenhouse was thrown into jeopardy Wednesday when his lawyers asked for a mistrial over what appeared to be out-of-bounds questions asked of Rittenhouse by the chief prosecutor.
Rittenhouse is on trial on charges of killing two men and injuring a third during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year after a local Black man was shot by a white police officer. The startling turn came after Rittenhouse took the stand and testified that he was under attack when he shot the three men.
“I defended myself,” the 18-year-old said. During cross-examination, the prosecutor Thomas Binger asked Rittenhouse whether it was appropriate to use deadly force to protect property. Binger also posed questions about Rittenhouse’s silence after his arrest.
