I thought he was fired for posting comments or a video witb "controversial" statements about the case.
Last Thursday[Defense attorney] Richards argued that a misdemeanor count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18 isn't supported by the law - an argument the court rejected before.
"It wasn't hunting season. This wasn't a kid who went up north with his dad and a shotgun and went hunting for deer," [prosecutor] Binger said.
"We're not arguing that he was 'hunter safety,' that's not what it says. He's not hunting -- so that subsection doesn't apply. He's over 16. That subsection applies," Richards said.
Someone finally read the statute correctly. Yay.Last Thursday
"Richards also filed a motion to dismiss a charge that Rittenhouse couldn't possess a gun because he was too young under Wisconsin law, arguing that statutes prohibit minors from possessing short-barreled shotguns and rifles, and Rittenhouse's assault-style rifle doesn't meet that definition."
