Mark Richards, one of the attorneys who represented Kyle Rittenhouse in his self-defense case, signaled that the teen will likely move out of the Kenosha, Wisconsin, area after he was found not guilty of murder on Friday.
Rittenhouse lived with his mother in Antioch, Illinois, which is just a short drive south of Kenosha. The teen worked in and partially grew up in Kenosha, with multiple members of his family living in that city, where he has deep roots.
Due to safety concerns after he was found not guilty, Richards to reporters in a post-verdict news conference he does not envision Rittenhouse staying in the area due to death threats.
“He has to get on with his life, the best he can,”
