The jury’s verdict was read on Friday after more than three days of deliberation. Rittenhouse faces five charges, consists of reckless homicide, intentional homicide and attempted murder after he fatally shot Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz amid unrest caused by police shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man, on 2020.

Rittenhouse’s legal team made the case during the trial that he acted in self-defence, and Rittenhouse told the jury, “I didn’t do anything wrong. I defended myself.” Prosecutors told jurors Rittenhouse is among those drawn like a “moth” to the unrest in Kenosha but “the evidence will show that the only person who has killed anyone is the defendant, Kyle Rittenhouse.” Rittenhouse was also found not guilty recklessly endangering safety.

After the verdict was read, Judge Bruce Schroeder said he “could not have asked for a better jury to work with.” On CNN, legal analyst Elie Honig noted that “the law in Wisconsin is very favorable for a defendant to claim the right to self-defense,” as “the prosecution must assert the denial of the right to self-defense beyond a reasonable doubt.” .” Honig also pointed out that the prosecution could not appeal the ruling, “so this would be the end of the state prosecution against Kyle Rittenhouse.”
