Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who allegedly shot and killed two people and wounded another during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year, is facing charges on trial. Prosecutors are calling the now-18-year-old an aggressor, while Rittenhouse’s attorney maintains his client acted in self-defense.
Rittenhouse has been charged with two counts of first-degree homicide, one count of attempted homicide, two counts of recklessly endangering safety, and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18. If convicted of first-degree homicide, he could be sentenced to life in prison. Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty.
