Circuit Court Judge Bruce E. Schroeder on Wednesday ripped Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger just one day after the prosecution rested its case in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse’s lawyer asked the Court to strongly admonish Binger and warned he will be filing a motion for a mistrial with prejudice.
Kenosha prosecutor Thomas Binger tried to go around the judge’s ruling and introduce inadmissible evidence and Judge Schroeder RIPPED into him.
“Don’t get brazen with me!” the judge said. “Why you would think that you can go into it without any advance notice to the court, I don’t understand that and as the defense is pointing out, you’re an experienced trial lawyer and this should not have been gone into,” he added.
The prosecutor is now arguing with the judge after bringing up a Rittenhouse statement that the judge previously ruled was inadmissible
