UPDATED: Rittenhouse's attorney thanks donors to #FightBack for covering $2M cash bail

From The Journal

KENOSHA — Kyle Rittenhouse posted $2 million bond on Friday afternoon and was released from the Kenosha County Detention Center.

A spokesman for the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department said attorneys for Rittenhouse posted the $2 million bond at about 2 p.m. He was released from the Detention Center, 4777 88th Ave. (Highway H).

“He was turned over to his own security detail arranged by his attorney and is no longer in our custody,” said Sgt. David Wright of the Sheriff’s Department.

Rittenhouse, 17, of Antioch, Ill., has been held at the Kenosha County Detention Center since Oct. 30, transferred to the facility after being extradited from Illinois. He is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide and attempted first-degree homicide for shooting three men during protests in Kenosha on Aug. 25, killing two.

Rittenhouse is accused of killing Anthony Huber of Silver Lake and Joseph Rosenbaum of Kenosha and seriously injuring Gaige Grosskreutz of West Allis. Rittenhouse’s supporters argue he was acting in self defense and should not have been charged.

The protests erupted following the Aug. 23 shooting of Jacob Blake by Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey.
