The Wisconsin man who purchased the AR-15-style rifle used by Kyle Rittenhouse will no longer face felony charges under a plea deal announced Monday.
Dominick Black, 20, of Racine, will instead plead guilty to a reduced charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and pay a $2,000 fine.
Black was charged in 2020 with two counts of intentionally giving a dangerous weapon to a minor after he bought the gun for then-17-year-old Rittenhouse
Rittenhouse used the rifle to kill two men and injure a third during last year’s violent protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin in response to the police shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in November, after he argued he acted in self-defense.
