Wisconsin prosecutors filed a motion on Wednesday and requested an arrest warrant and bond increase against Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was charged with killing two people during protests last summer in Kenosa.
The 18-year-old Ritenhouse allegedly violated the terms of his bond by failing to notify the court of his changed address, which, according to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office, hinders his ability to monitor his whereabouts . The sender has been sent back without a forwarding address to the sender of the notice for a hearing, the court has been filing since Thursday.
Prosecutors argued that because Rittenhouse did not post the bond himself for his release, he maintained a careless attitude about his position and had little incentive to comply with the terms of his bond.
“Finally, it is highly unusual for a defendant to face a charge of First Degree Intentional Homicide in Kenosha County for posting a cash bond and release from custody pending trial,” the motion stated. “Rarely do our community see accused killers roaming freely.”
Rittenhouse was released from the Kenosha County Jail in November on a $ 2 million bond, largely taken from right-wing activists and conservative celebrities following donations made to his Legal Defense Fund.
The motion requested that the court issue a warrant for Rittenhouse’s arrest and extend the teenager’s bond to $ 200,000. It also asks the court to order Rittenhouse to update its address immediately.
Mark Richards, an attorney for Rittenhouse, did not immediately respond to phone calls and emails and requested comment from NBC News. Richards told NBC-affiliated WTMJ that it was reacting to the proposal.
Rattenhouse allegedly killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenboom and 26-year-old Anthony Huber for guarding the car dealership during protests that took place after the August 23 shooting of Joseph Blake.
He is also accused of having the hand of a third man, Gage Grosskrutze.
The court modified the terms of the release of Rittenhouse’s bond only on 22 January after the teenager was seen at once.
On January 5, prosecutors filed a motion after Rittenhouse appeared at a local bar in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, the same day he pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
Motion said that Rittenhouse was photographed in a shirt reading “F *** as OK”, a gesture – which has been correlated to a gesture. According to the proposal, he was seen drinking alcohol by a group of adult men who sang the anthem of the Proud Boys.
The state of Wisconsin allows people under the age of 21 to drink alcohol if they are with a parent, although it is illegal in Illinois where the Rittenhouse was residing.
Rattenhouse is prohibited from drinking alcohol and is prohibited from having relationships with other people known to any group or individual based on things like race or religion. He cannot have any weapon.
