MADISON, WI- Today, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five felony charges. These charges included:

  • One count of first degree reckless homicide
  • One count of first degree intentional homicide
  • Two counts of first degree endangering safety
  • One count of first degree attempted homicide

On this full acquittal, Representative Stubbs released the following statement:

“On August 25th 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse opened fire in Kenosha, Wisconsin. His actions killed Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz. To see a full acquittal today is an injustice to his victims, to their loved ones, and to the entire Kenosha community.”

“This fact is clear, Anthony and Joseph should still be alive today. We owe it to their memory and to their families to seek justice through real meaningful reform. The message this verdict sends is both appalling, and irresponsible. We must continue to fight for equity in our criminal justice system, and combat these senseless instances of gun violence.”

“After the trial, the parents of Anthony Huber released this statement: “We hope that decent people will join us…and demand more of our laws, our officials, and our justice system”, I urge my colleagues to hear this call to action, and do what is right for our communities. Throughout this session, and throughout my career, I have advocated for meaningful criminal justice reform. While we have taken the first steps forward, this case shows that there is so much more work to be done.”

“Today, my prayers go out to the victims’ families, loved ones, and to the entire Kenosha community. Together we will continue our fight for justice, and for a better Wisconsin for everyone.”
