Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund is continuing to raise thousands of dollars ahead of his murder trial.
Rittenhouse’s online crowdfunder for his legal defense is shockingly continuing to grow…
And the legal defense fund is said to have raised nearly $500,000 in the past 3 months, Forbes reports.
Rittenhouse is facing 6 criminal charges including homicide and a misdemeanor charge of an underage firearm possession for allegedly opening fire in Kenosha, Wisconsin during a Black Lives Matter protest last year.
Rittenhouse’s actions allegedly led to the deaths of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and injured Gaige Grosskreutz.
The donations come through FreeKyleUSA, the main fundraising effort launched by Rittenhouse’s mother, Wendy Rittenhouse.
A social media account, @freekyleusa, linked to the defense fund run by the Rittenhouse’s mother, claims to have raised $464,111.
“Since March 1st, The Milo Fund LLC and FreeKyleUSA have raised $464,111 and processed payment for $362,050 in case-related expenses for attorneys fees, investigators, legal consultants, subject matter experts, and security,” it tweeted.
The Milo Fund LLC “is the business/transactional entity formed to receive donations and pay legal expenses,” the account explained.
Rittenhouse’s trial was originally scheduled for March 29, however it was delayed as both sides requested more time to prepare.
The trial is now scheduled to start on November 1st.
