Kyle Rittenhouse Demands Prosecutors Return Gun He Used In Kenosha Shootings

• by Tyler Durden

This week, Richards filed a motion demanding the return of Rittenhouse's gun and some other property - including an iPhone, ammunition, clothing, a face mask and "a $1 bill" - in accordance with Wisconsin law, which requires a former defendant's to officially request that personal property taken by the state as evidence be returned.

The case against Rittenhouse ended on Nov. 19 with him being acquitted on all six counts that he was facing.  But his rifle was held by the state because it was being used as evidence in the prosecution of Dominick Black, a friend who purchased the gun on Rittenhouse's behalf in April 2020. Rittenhouse was 17 at the time of the shootings. Black was charged with two felonies for delivering a weapon to a minor, causing death, but he has reached a plea deal with prosecutors allowing him to avoid jail time.

Rittenhouse isn't requesting the return of the weapon so he can keep it for himself. He has repeatedly said that he wants the weapon returned so that he can see to it that it is destroyed.
