Kyle Rittenhouse Represented By Lin Wood, Attorney For Nick Sandmann, Richard Jewell

Some positive developments came Thursday in the case for Kyle Rittenhouse, who is being charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide, Reckless Homicide, Attempted Intentional Homicide, Recklessly Endangering Safety, and Possession of a Dangerous Weapon While Under the Age of 18.

The charges follow altercations in Kenosha, Wisconsin where Rittenhouse shot one man fatally in the head attacking him at a car dealership. He was then chased by several rioters shooting another fatally who attacked him with a skateboard, and another in the arm who was pursuing him with a gun.

Joseph Rosenbaum, who attacked Rittenhouse at the car dealership was on the sex offender registry. The other fatality, Anthony Huber, who attacked Rittenhouse with a skateboard had a domestic violence record. Gaige Grosskreutz who possessed a gun and was shot in the arm while drawing on Rittenhouse, was not allowed to possess one due to being a felon. 

Attorney Lin Wood is representing Rittenhouse Pro Bono, according to The DC Patriot.

ABC News also reported on Wood taking the case:

“Rittenhouse’s attorney, Lin Wood, said the teenager was acting in self-defense. Cellphone footage shows the shooter being chased into a used car lot by someone before shots are heard and the person lies dead. The shooter then runs down the street where he is chased by several people shouting that he just shot someone. He stumbles after being approached by several more people and fires, killing another man and injuring a third.”

Lin Wood previously represented Richard Jewell in the Atlanta Bombing case who was innocent and defamed by the media, and most recently the Nicholas Sandmann lawsuits against mainstream media organizations for defamation

Wood is very good at what he does

Especially when the charges don’t appear to fit at all, according to a New York Times analysis.

The New York Times reviewed and synced hours of livestream footage to piece together a timeline, and what they found does not appear to favor the charges.

The findings were summarized in a Twitter thread from Christiaan Triebert, who does visual investigations with the New York Times. 

Triebert as well corrects his previous statement that an AR-15 is an assault rifle.

According to Nationalfile, a GoFundMe for Rittenhouse’s legal fees was removed within minutes of being posted, while bail crowdfunding is allowed to remain for rioters. 

However according to Attorney Lin Wood, the best place to donate for the defense is with Foundation, INC. Wood indicates that a website for donations to this non profit will be live shortly.
