Judge EXPLODES on Prosecution Attorney After “Grave Constitutional Violation” (VIDEO)
As I’ve stated before, I haven’t watched much of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, but I decided to watch it when Kyle Rittenhouse himself took the stand to give a defense for himself.
It was a very powerful testimony which at one point even brought Rittenhouse to tears when he began to describe his attackers coming at him and putting his life in jeopardy that night.
During the cross-examination of Rittenhouse, one of the prosecution attorneys overstepped his reach and said some things that he shouldn’t. This led to the judge asking the jury to step out so he could open up a can on him.
“The problem is this is a grave constitutional violation for you to talk about the defendant’s silence, and that is, you’re right on the borderline. And you may be over, but it better stop,” Schroeder said. “I can’t think of an initial case on it, but this is not permitted.”

But it didn’t stop there. The attorney messed up again and inched very closely to the causing a mistrial.
“I was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant’s post-arrest silence. That’s basic law. It’s been basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years. I have no idea why you would do something like that! And it gives, well, I’ll leave it at that. So I don’t know what you’re up to,” Schroeder said.
“I have to be concerned that, with what Mr. Richards has said about the progress of the trial when you were way, well, I said you were close to or over the line on commenting on the defendant’s pretrial silence, which is a well-known rule,” the judge later added. “I am astonished that that would have been an issue. So, I don’t want to have another issue for as long as this case continues. Is that clear?”
