Wisconsin prosecutors seek Rittenhouse arrest, higher bond

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors asked a judge Wednesday for a new arrest warrant for an Illinois teen charged with shooting three people, killing two of them, during a protest over police brutality in Wisconsin after he apparently violated his bail conditions.

Kyle Rittenhouse failed to inform the court of his change of address within 48 hours of moving, Kenosha County prosecutors alleged in a motion filed with Judge Bruce Schroeder. The motion asks Schroeder to issue an arrest warrant and increase Rittenhouse’s bail by $200,000.

Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, countered in his own motion Wednesday that death threats have driven Rittenhouse into an “undisclosed Safe House.” Richards said he offered to give prosecutors the new address in November if they would keep it secret but they refused. He said Rittenhouse has stayed in constant contact with him.

Rittenhouse is charged with multiple counts, including homicide, in connection with the protests in August in Kenosha. The demonstrations began after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, who is Black, in the back during a domestic disturbance, leaving him paralzyed from the waist down.

2. Higher bond???

How about NO BOND!

He's disappeared, which means he's now a flight risk.

3. I wonder how an 18 year old man is able to afford an apartment anyhow.

It's difficult enough for someone with an education and experience to afford a place to live when they start out in the working world. Either the parents are picking up the tab or he is using some of the money that he raised in the GoFundMe campaign for his living expenses instead of his defense. Also, who would rent to this person knowing that he may have to abandon the apartment if found guilty.

He does need to be locked up until trial.
