Kyle Rittenhouse Trial Day 2 - Opening Statements & Witness Jacob Black
Kyle Rittenhouse, now 18, formerly of Antioch, Illinois, has been charged with six felonies and one misdemeanor. He has pleaded not guilty by self-defense. The Lawyer You Know gives a quick recap of day 2 of the trial & discusses what he thinks the defense and prosecution have done right/wrong in the trial so far. Opening statements included more arguments than statements surprisingly & Jacob Black, the first witness of the trial may have done more for the defense than the prosecution.
Where do you think is leaning after day 2? defense and prosecution?
Day 1 started off with some technical difficulties and the judge making light of it to entertain the potential jurors. Once the technical problems were solved, jury selection began. The prosecution went first, but surprisingly the judge help most of the time.
