In an unusual request, Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers are asking for a mistrial with prejudice to be called because prosecutors discussed his right to remain silent in front of the jury. If the judge approves, Rittenhouse could not be retried for the crimes.
Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial for shooting and killing two people during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has resumed after his lawyers asked for a mistrial with prejudice, meaning he could not be retried.
After an emotional day of testimony and a call for a mistrial in Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial, his defense attorneys will call more witnesses to the stand Thursday to build their self-defense case.
What people are saying?
A.J.K. They’re argument is “They tried to mention he was caught on video saying he wanted to shoot and kill looters 15 days before he went to ‘help’ and killed 2 unarmed men” — something the judge decided to refuse the prosecution from mentioning to the jury.
