Judge Bruce Schroeder has said he will consider a request by the defense for a mistrial with prejudice in the case of the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting over alleged “prosecutorial misconduct.”

The request came following a return to trial after Wednesday’s lunch break following a volatile morning session that included Rittenhouse testifying and the judge shouting at the prosecution.

The specific reason for the mistrial request referred to the defense accusing the prosecution of violating Rittenhouse’s rights “by mentioning his silence in the wake of the 25 August 2020 shootings and by referencing a video that was previously deemed inadmissible.”

The now-18-year-old Rittenhouse faces charges in the shooting deaths of two men and the wounding of a third individual during a Black Lives Matter riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Rittenhouse has claimed the shootings were in self-defense.
