Man Charged With Buying Assault Rifle for Kyle Rittenhouse Takes Plea Deal

The man who bought an assault rifle for Kyle Rittenhouse just took a plea deal. Dominick Black, who is 20 now, was charged in November 2020 with two counts of delivering a dangerous weapon to a minor which resulted in death.

Rittenhouse was found not guilty after killing two male protestors in Kenosha. Rittenhouse, 19, a resident of Illinois stormed the state line on Aug. 25, 2020, to Wisconsin in the middle of a civil unrest protest. While there, he killed two and wounded another. Now his friend that purchased the rifle for him is facing charges since Rittenhouse was too young to purchase a gun.

Black purchased the weapon at a hardware store in Rusk County in May earlier that year. In November, a jury found Rittenhouse not guilty; however, Black’s case is still up in the air.

NBC News reports Friday, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger filed a proposed plea agreement. It suggests that Black will plead no contest to a pair of citations, pay $2,000 in fines, and the felony counts could be dismissed. Judge Bruce Schroeder hasn’t dismissed or rejected the deal.

In similarity to Schroeder’s ruling with Rittenhouse, the defense was able to convince him that there is an exception in a law that allows 17-year-olds to possess rifles and shotguns. Therefore, Judge Schroeder ruled out one of the charges towards Rittenhouse.
