The friend of Kyle Rittenhouse who bought him the AR-15 used in Kenosha took a no-contest plea.
The plea means Dominick Black, 20, can avoid conviction for the two felonies he was facing.
Rittenhouse was fully acquitted in his homicide trial in November.
The man who bought Kyle Rittenhouse the gun he used to fatally shoot two people and injure a third during the protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, 2020, has agreed to plead no contest to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
In November 2020, Dominick Black, 20, was arrested and charged with two counts of delivering a dangerous weapon to a minor, resulting in death. The two counts are related to the two protesters Rittenhouse fatally shot: Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber.
Black could have faced up to 12 years in prison but the plea deal allows him to avoid convictions for the two felonies he was facing. The charge Black pleaded no-contest to is a non-criminal complaint, meaning he won’t serve any jail time.
Black purchased the AR-15 rifle when he was 18. Rittenhouse was only 17 at the time and unable to purchase a firearm.
