Prosecutors issued a new arrest warrant for Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with fatally shooting two Antifa/Black Lives Matter activists during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August.
Prosecutors seek to revoke Rittenhouse’s $2 million cash bond because they say he violated his bond by failing to update his address.
Sympathetic citizens helped raise Rittenhouse’s $2 million bond because they believe he was defending himself against armed hooligans.
Kyle is forced to move to a new address due to death threats from Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists. But prosecutors say the teen failed to update his new address within 48 hours of moving.
A motion filed with Judge Bruce Schroeder seeks to increase Rittenhouse’s cash bail by $200,000.
Rittenhouse’s lawyer, Mark Richards, responded to the motion, saying his client moved into “an undisclosed Safe House,” because whenever he updates his address in the system — the new address is somehow leaked.
Richards said he gave prosecutors the new address in November and asked them to keep it a secret but they refused.
Prosecutors say they realized Rittenhouse was no longer living at his Antioch address when they mailed him a court notice and it came back as undeliverable.
Richards provided the new address to the judge as part of a motion requesting it be sealed.
