Kyle Rittenhouse’s self-defense strategy got a boost from the judge in his case.
The judge yesterday said Rittenhouse’s use-of-force expert can testify at trial, though not on everything. The judge also shot down a prosecution request to not allow anyone to call the men who Rittenhouse shot ‘rioters, looters, or arsonists.’
Rittenhouse killed two and wounded a third during Kenosha’s night of violence back in 2020. His lawyers plan to argue he fired only after being attacked. Rittenhouse’s trial is scheduled to start next week.
