Kyle Rittenhouse is seen here with his mother and Mr. Schroder
Actor Ricky Schroder reportedly contributed $150,000 US towards Kyle Rittenhouse’s $2 million bail.
Mr. Schroder's donation to the fund emerged after one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys, Lin Wood, tweeted a triumphant photo on Friday showing lawyer John Pierce, Rittenhouse and Schroder, shortly after Kyle was released from custody, reports TMZ.
Rittenhouse, 17, allegedly shot three antifa supporters in self defence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, while the city was engulfed in civil unrest following an earlier shooting by a Kenosha police officer that left Jacob Blake paralyzed.
The teenager was charged with multiple counts of homicide and unlawful possession of a firearm. He claims he was acting in self-defence.
