Kyle Rittenhouse, an 18 year old teenager from Antioch, Illinois, was charged with five felonies in Kenosha, Wisconsin: two counts of first degree reckless homicide, first degree recklessly endangering safety, and use of a dangerous weapon, first degree intentional homicide, and attempted first degree intentional homicide.
After nearly twenty-six hours of deliberation, on November 19, 2021, the jury concluded that Rittenhouse was not guilty. They concluded after hearing him state multiple times under oath that he acted in self defense, finally deciding that Rittenhouse was indeed telling his part of the truth.
