Last summer, Kyle Rittenhouse showed up to a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin armed as if he was going into a war zone. The then 17 year-old ended up using his weapon to shoot 3 people, killing two of them.
Wood, though, did not last long as the lawyer for Rittenhouse and the split between him and the family was acrimonious. The lawyer is now suing to recover the $2 million he raised to pay for bail.
A letter read by lawyer Xavier Solis read, “The Rittenhouse bail was paid by #FightBack Foundation, a 501(c)(4) non-profit, from donations it received,” Wood told Insider Thursday in an email. “Under law, the bail monies must be returned to #FightBack.”
An account connected to the Rittenhouse family tweeted, “Money makes people do silly things. While we’re busting our humps trying to raise money and see Kyle acquitted, Lin Wood is sending letters to the court DURING Kyle’s hearing to demand $2M in donations FOR KYLE be given to HIM. Lin Wood…keeping it classy as always.”
