Bail Set at $2M for Kyle Rittenhouse

Father of one of men killed asks for twice the bail amount...

(Headline USA) A Wisconsin court commissioner on Monday set bail for an Illinois 17-year-old accused of killing two people during a protest at $2 million, setting aside pleas from one victim’s father to double that amount.

Kenosha County prosecutors have charged Kyle Rittenhouse of Antioch, Illinois, with fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during riots following a police shooting in August.

They’ve also charged him with wounding a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz.

Rittenhouse turned himself in to police in Antioch the morning after the shootings.

Rittenhouse was extradited to Wisconsin on Friday and made his initial court appearance in Kenosha County on Monday afternoon.

His attorney, Mark Richards, asked Court Commissioner Loren Keating to set bail at $750,000 and place Rittenhouse on electronic monitoring.

Rittenhouses lawyers have argued that the teen acted in self-defense, citing several examples of video evidence to substantiate their claim.

Prosecutors asked Keating to set bail at $2 million, saying Rittenhouse has every reason to flee.

John Huber, whose son, Anthony, was one of the two people killed, made an emotional appeal for the judge to go much higher than the $2 million the state sought.
