After the first day of jury deliberation, family spokesperson Dave Hancock stated that Kyle Rittenhouse is “staying strong” and “positive,” noting that the Rittenhouse team does not believe anything can be inferred from the jury’s deliberation time at this point. A verdict is expected soon.
Regarding the jury and whether they expect a fair trial, Hancock expressed some concern that it was “impossible [for potential jurors] to not consume media” about the case before jury selection. Still, the Rittenhouse team feels confident that “a lot of truths that have come out over the past two weeks,” adding “there’s a lot of things said about Kyle that just were fundamentally untrue and the truth has come to light since then.”
