Rittenhouse Attorney: 'I Quit Answering the Phone' After Inundation of Death Threats


Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney Mark Richards says he has stopped using his phone after being inundated with death threats.

“Everybody in this case, and when I say that, I mean prosecution, defense – to me it’s scary how many death threats we’ve had,” Richards stated at a press conference after court Friday, following the jury’s five-count not guilty verdict.

Richards told Insider he “can’t count” the amount of death threats he has received as the number is “too high.”
