Kenosha prosecutors want Rittenhouse arrested again over suspected bond violation: Reports

Kyle Rittenhouse became a household name during last year’s widespread protests when he was arrested on suspicion of killing two rioters and wounding a third amid civil unrest in Wisconsin that followed the death of Jacob Blake.

According to reports this week, prosecutors in Kenosha are now seeking to have the teenager taken back into custody.

“The most serious possible criminal charges”

According to The Washington Times, Rittenhouse is accused of violating the terms of his release when he failed to notify authorities of an address change within 48 hours.

The Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office stated in a motion: “He posted no money sho he has no financial stake in the bond.”

Prosecutors went on to note that the teen is “already facing the most serious possible criminal charges and life in prison, so in comparison, potential future criminal penalties are insignificant,” as the Times reported.

The statement went on to assert that “it is critically important that the court be able to monitor the defendant’s whereabouts at all times,” particularly in such a high-stakes prosecution.

“After all, it is extremely unusual for a defendant facing a charge of first-degree intentional homicide in Kenosha County to post cash bond and be released from custody pending trial,” the statement added. “Rarely does our community see accused murderers roaming about freely.”

“Over two months ago”

According to reports, prosecutors’ statement complained of Rittenhouse’s “carefree attitude” and his decision to be seen “in the company of known ‘Proud Boys’ while flashing white supremacist gang signs and wearing a ‘Free as [expletive]’ shirt.”

The Kenosha News, however, cited a response from the suspect’s attorney, Mark Richards, that asserts the judge was provided with the updated address in a motion.

Richards also stated that local law enforcement had advised that the new address not be formally updated in an effort to stem a tide of violent threats his client had been receiving.

“It is noteworthy that the State has only now decided to file a motion to increase bond in this case, despite having corresponded with Attorney Chirafisi regarding the change in Kyle’s residence over two months ago,” Richards said.

Corey Chirafisi, who also represents Rittenhouse, reportedly filed a motion on Nov. 30 asking that the defendant’s address be kept under wraps.

  1. What is not mentioned here is that Rittenhouse turned himself in after killing people who threatened him with deadly force. Prosecutors clearly do not care what the circumstances were surrounding the event that led to his arrest. He is no murderer and is no white supremacist. It’s more than ludicrous. It is interesting how the relevant facts get omitted in an article like this.

    1. And thats how the left operates! LIS,Daulsehoods and made up stuff! They dont care if they are destroying this kids life as long and it gets their point across, which is “dont dare shoot our supporters in the streets and left hem burn your cities and murder you innocent children and adults! Antifa/BLM/CIAR/Moslem Brotherhood have all partnered now so that terrorist groups violence will only get worse! Time to take out the trash and let Rittenhouse go!!!

  3. Funny how they try to portray the Proud Boys as a White supremacist group when it’s actually made up of a mixture of all ethics and cultures. Many Blacks are leaders within this group. When the Government didn’t try to stop the BLM and Antifa gangs from burning and looting business the Proud Boys stepped up and fought against these racial and fascist gangs. Now the Democrats are calling them a White supremacist group and are saying the Antifa gang is just an idea. So who is the Domestic terrorist in America?

  4. I couldn’t agree more Richard! It seems to be that everything the Democrats are guilty of….They accuse the Republicans of being. I enjoy reading the comments from other conservatives,It makes me realize I’m not alone. God Bless my fellow patriots!
