Rittenhouse Found Not Guilty On All Charges

A jury took nearly four days to find Kyle Rittenhouse Not Guilty on all five charges that he faced.

The jury handed down their decision late Friday morning on the charges that stemmed from the 2020 shootings that killed two people and severely injured another during protests in Kenosha.

The jury delivered the vedict following the three-week trial. Rittenhouse was visibly shaken as the verdict was read aloud, falling to the ground, crying and then hugging his defense attorney.

Rittenhouse, now 18, plead not guilty to all of the charges, and had argued he acted in self-defense claiming the demonstrators he shot were trying to attack him.
