One of America’s leading general attorneys shares his legal analysis ahead of Friday’s verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse vs St. Joseph Parish Church church official trial.
Jurors returned from deliberations for another day at the 4th Circuit courthouse in New Orleans.
Jim Holston of The Holston Law Firm is tracking the case and says the jury will first have to wade through a 100 page transcript of all the evidence and testimony, which will be analyzed by the lawyers and the lawyers will each make their case.
From there, the jury will have to determine at what stage of criminal liability Rittenhouse was not present, or in addition to being present, but over which jurisdiction it’s relevant and in what manner the criminal conduct occurred.
According to Holston, the focus of the case is on financial assistance, fundraising and more broadly and, as he said, “the environment surrounding the church in that parish.”
Holston believes the community feels “once they get what they believe to be their share, they have to bring in all the other victims,” while at the same time they are waiting to see if they are guilty of every other crime that they may have committed.
Kyle Rittenhouse admits that he did raise money for the church but he maintains that the church relied on his services for getting permission to collect the monies.
Jurors returned to the courtroom around 3 p.m. and after going back and forth for close to two hours the judge dismissed them after one more full day.
