After several days of deliberation, Kyle Rittenhouse was found “not guilty” on all charges. However, there was still the threat of the jury being harassed for coming to an innocent verdict, despite it being such a controversial and high profile case.
Before dismissing the jury on Friday, Judge Bruce Schroeder (pic above) told the jury to let him know if the media harasses them for statements or appearances and he would handle it.
“You’re never under any obligation to discuss any aspect of this case with anyone. You’re welcome to do so as little or as much as you want. The media have requested–a number of media sources have requested the ability to talk to you, and they have been allowed to present presentations to you that you’ll get in writing, and it’s entirely up to you whether you want to contact them.”
“They are not to contact you. If anyone does contact you, just tell them you are not interested in discussing it if that’s the case. And if anyone persists in doing so, report that to us, and it will be addressed. I assure you,” Schroeder said.
