Major update from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.
A weapons charge against Kyle Rittenhouse has been dismissed.
This debunks another phony narrative pushed by the fake news media.
Judge Bruce Schroeder ruled in favor of the defense’s request to have a firearms charge against Kyle Rittenhouse dismissed in Kenosha County Court on Monday morning.
On Friday, as Breitbart News reported, Judge Scroeder appeared skeptical of the weapons charge, saying that the Wisconsin statue was unclear about exceptions for those over 16 years old but under 18 years old if the gun were a long-barreled rifle.
However, the judge did not throw out the charge, partly because he could not remember whether the length of the rifle Rittenhouse used had been introduced into evidence.
On Monday, as lawyers for the prosecution and the defense argued over the final draft of the jury instructions, the defense again raised the issue of the weapons charge, noting that the gun had been measured in court and that the police detective on the witness stand had confirmed that it was not short-barreled.
The judge laid out the requirements to meet the firearms charge, which stipulates that the rifle’s overall length must be under 26 inches or the barrel length must be under 16 inches. Since Rittenhouse’s rifle did not meet the requirements, the judge summarily dismissed the charge.
“Count 6 is dismissed,” Judge Schroeder said.
“This happened during a discussion between judge, defense, and prosecution over jury instructions,” court reporter Angelica Sanchez noted.
The firearms charge itself is consistent with a prosecutorial pattern of dishonesty that has become a black mark on the entire trial. Judge Shroeder has notoriously reprimanded and even berated Binger for his prosecutorial antics.
