Prosecutors again ask for higher bond for Kenosha protest shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, saying he thinks ‘rules do not apply to him’

From Chicago Tribune:

Wisconsin prosecutors pressed their call for a higher bond for Kyle Rittenhouse, arguing Thursday that the 18-year-old “apparently believes the rules do not apply to him” as he awaits trial for shooting three people, two of them fatally, at an August protest.

The filing by Kenosha County prosecutors came a day after they sought an arrest warrant for Rittenhouse and for $200,000 to be added on top of the $2 million bond his lawyers posted in November, alleging he has failed to tell the courts where he is living.

Rittenhouse lived in far north suburban Antioch at the time of the Kenosha shootings but has lived at an undisclosed location since his release ― a move his lawyers attribute to threats on his life. The crux of the prosecutors’ argument is that Rittenhouse’s lawyers listed the Antioch address on his bond paperwork and have not updated the courts on his new home.

On Wednesday, Rittenhouse’s lawyers filed what they said was his new address along with a motion to seal the information.
