Legal experts surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse case say the teen has a strong claim of “self-defense.”
The 18-year-old is due for trial Monday as he faces six counts, including homicide charges for the deaths of two men in August of 2020. Rittenhouse also greatly injured a third person after traveling to Kenosha, Wisconsin bearing an AR-style semiautomatic rifle.

Experts say under Wisconsin law, Rittenhouse has a strong self-defense case and prosecutors will have to convince the jury he forfeited that claim after showing up with a weapon.
