Watch now: Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney argues self-defense at preliminary hearing | Crime

The detective testified that Rosenbaum was chasing Rittenhouse before he was shot. After that shooting, he said, Rittenhouse was running away and fell to the ground, shooting Huber after Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard. Another man, who was seen on video trying to kick Rittenhouse, was never identified, Antaramian testified.

“The state is trying to put forward a one-sided view of what happened, protecting someone who does not deserve protection, he’s a masked robber,” Richards said of Rosenbaum.

A California lawyer for Kyle Rittenhouse should not be granted permission to practice in Wisconsin because of several ethical concerns, Kenosha prosecutors say.

In a brief, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger has sharpened his office’s objections to John Pierce — a civil litigator from Los Angeles who has been directing a media blitz for Rittenhouse — being part of the criminal defense team on the teen’s homicides case.

Meanwhile, Pierce announced Thursday that he has taken over all civil representation of Rittenhouse, including potential defamation actions, as well as the efforts to raise more money for his defense, and apparently abdicating any role at the criminal trial in Kenosha.

CLOSE

Former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page told Good Morning America hosts that he’s never communicated with the president. Carter is the focus of a Republican memo alleging the FBI abused surveillance rules to spy on him.

WASHINGTON – Former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who altered an email used to justify wiretapping a former Trump campaign aide, is asking to be spared from a prison sentence, acknowledging he had committed a crime but did not mean to mislead investigators.

Clinesmith’s attorneys are asking a federal judge to sentence him to probation.

Can city workers run for office? North Miami will change rules after attorney blunder

Three government employees have resigned and a fourth has withdrawn her candidacy for Miami commission after North Miami’s city attorney realized late last month that the city code does not allow North Miami employees to run for public office.

On Wednesday, the North Miami city council voted, 5-0, in favor of amending a city ordinance to allow employees to run for office in other jurisdictions but to require them to resign once they’re elected. The measure must be approved again at the commission’s next meeting before it becomes law.

“Our code should not preclude somebody from running for office,” Councilman Scott Galvin said. “I would like to see this measure pass to allow greater participation in American democracy.”

Galvin and Vice Mayor Alix Desulme said they would prefer for the amendment to go further by allowing city employees to keep their jobs even while serving in elected office outside
