Wendy Rittenhouse issued a message on behalf of the Kyle Rittenhouse Defense Fund Tuesday as the jury in her son's case continued deliberations.
“Both the prosecution and my son Kyle's defense team have finished their closing arguments and I am beyond nervous,” she wrote in the email.
In the email, she asked for donations to pay for legal costs. Legal costs for the month of November are expected to be $110,000, Wendy Rittenhouse wrote.
“We have been fighting an extremely uphill battle from the beginning, but with the support of thousands of our fellow Americans we have put up a big fight,” she said.
Jurors began deliberations earlier today in Kyle Rittenhouse's homicide trial, a day after the prosecution and defense offered dueling assessments of his actions last year during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The final 12-person jury panel is made up of five men and seven women, according to a pool reporter in court.
