The changes are just part of the fallout for Rittenhouse after being found not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide and four other counts related to fatal shootings in Wisconsin last year.

“And what about the law? I think I heard you mention that as well? Banfield asked.

It is “something that I am considering”, he replied. “I’m a big nurse at the moment. I want to study the law and see if it’s okay with me, and if I decided to do it, it would definitely be criminal defense work. “
