Judge Sets Bail Hearing for Kyle Rittenhouse Next Week


A Wisconsin judge will hold a hearing next week on whether to arrest or increase bail for Kyle Rittenhouse.

The 18-year-old from Illinois is accused of killing two people and wounding a third during a police brutality protest in Wisconsin last summer.

The hearing comes after he failed to update his address with the court.

Rittenhouse's attorneys say he moved into an undisclosed “safe house” after he posted $2 million bond in November to get out of jail.

They don't want to give out the address unless it's sealed.

Prosecutors have asked Judge Bruce Schroeder to issue a new arrest warrant and raise Rittenhouse's bail by $200,000.

Schroeder scheduled a hearing for Thursday.
