Kenosha County Judge Bruce Schroeder responded to the media coverage of the proceedings after calling prosecutors and defense attorneys into court to discuss a question from the jury.

“I will tell you this, and I’m going to think long and hard about live television trials again next time,” Schroeder told the court.

Rittenhouse, 18, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding a third during a night of protests against racial injustice in Kenosha in the summer of 2020.

Rittenhouse’s lawyers have filed a motion requesting a mistrial, claiming the prosecutors withheld evidence.
