Who is Kyle’s mom Wendy Rittenhouse and did she drive him to Kenosha the night of the shooting?

KYLE Rittenhouse is currently standing trial and is accused of murdering two people in August 2020, following the death of Jacob Blake.

As the trial continues, many are wondering how much involvement Kyle's mother, Wendy, had.

Who is Kyle’s mom Wendy Rittenhouse? 

Wendy Rittenhouse is known as a certified nursing assistant and a single mother to three children.

Her children include: Faith, 21, Kyle, 18, and McKenzie, 17.

Outside of her occupation, little is known about Kyle's mother as she has kept a low profile amid the allegations against her son.

Did Wendy drive her son Kyle to the Kenosha protests? 

While many people believe Wendy drove her son to the protests, Kyle reportedly drove himself to Kenosha.

The New Yorker later revealed that upon his return home, Wendy allegedly gave her son two options, either turn himself in or leave town.

Around 1:00am, Wendy and Kyle then drove to the police station where he asked for an attorney.

As news started to spread, Wendy started to get death threats, according to the media outlet.

"Your son is a white supremacist murderer b****. You and your family need to count your f***in days,” one text allegedly read.

Despite reportedly forcing her son to go to the authorities, Wendy believes that her son was using self-defense and told ABC, "he's not a monster," during a sit-down interview.

"If he didn't have that gun, he would have been dead," Wendy told the media outlet.

"Point-blank. It was all self-defense. I saw it. If I wasn't his mother, I would have said the same thing – it was self-defense. He was chased by a bunch of mob."

What happened to Jacob Blake?

Kenosha police were called on Jacob Blake the day he was shot after they became aware he had an open warrant for felony sexual assault.

He was later shot seven times in the back as a result of an apparent scuffle and confrontation with police.

His death sparked outrage and protests across the nation.

Who is Kyle Rittenhouse and what did he do?

Kyle allegedly shot at demonstrators who were marching to protest the Black Lives Matter shooting of Jacob Blake, according to authorities. 

He is accused of murdering Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber as well as injuring Gaige Grosskreutz.

The teenager is currently standing trial in Wisconsin and is facing six criminal charges including first-degree reckless homicide and first-degree intentional homicide.

He has since pleaded not guilty on all charges and is claiming self-defense.

Kyle was also charged with failure to comply with an emergency order from state or local government, but judge Bruce Schroeder later dismissed the charge during the second week of the trial.

On November 10, Rittenhouse appeared in court and sobbed during his defense testimony, forcing the proceedings to be halted.

Was it legal for Kyle Rittenhouse to carry a rifle at the protests?

  • It is legal to carry any legal firearm openly in Wisconsin
  • Kyle Rittenhouse was underage and therefore not allowed to own a weapon of any kind
  • According to statutes, which say anyone under 18 who "goes armed" with any deadly weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor
  • Illinois law requires anyone who owns any kind of firearm in that state to have a Firearm Owners Identification card
  • That type of permit is only available to someone 21 or older or someone with a sponsor who is 21 and eligible for a card

Rosenbaum leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter in Texas and a fiancée.

"May you forever be with the angels and rest easy bro. I love you!" his sister wrote on Facebook.

A GoFundMe page was set up by his friend Adriana Garcia to help his fiancée with his funeral and burial costs.

"I am raising money to help support my friend jojo," the description stated. "He died last night in the protest for Jacob Blake.

"R.I.P TO BOTH," she wrote in reference to Huber.

"His girlfriend and I are trying to raise money for a funeral and for him to be cremated. If you can help in ANY way PLEASE do."
