NBC News reports:
Wisconsin prosecutors filed a motion on Wednesday requesting an arrest warrant and bond increase against Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha last summer.
Rittenhouse, 18, allegedly violated the conditions of his bond by failing to notify the court of his changed address, which inhibits the ability to monitor his whereabouts, according to the Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors argued that because Rittenhouse did not post the bond for his release himself, he has maintained a careless attitude about his situation and has little incentive to comply with his bond conditions.
The New York Daily News reports:
The Kenosha County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that it sent a hearing notice to Rittenhouse’s listed address in Antioch, Ill., but it went unreturned, Milwaukee NBC affiliate WTMJ reported.
Kenosha police detectives investigated the lack of response and learned that a different man had started renting the property in mid-December, according to WTMJ. Rittenhouse was required to notify the court within 48 hours if he changed his address.
Rittenhouse posted the initial $2 million bond with help from right-wing supporters. He pleaded not guilty in January to all his charges.
