MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The man who bought an AR-15-style rifle for Kyle Rittenhouse has pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in a deal with prosecutors to avoid prison.
A Wisconsin judge accepted Dominick Black’s plea on Monday.
Prosecutors dropped two felony counts of intent to deliver a dangerous weapon to a minor. Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a non-criminal citation. Black was 18 when he purchased the rifle in May 2020.
Rittenhouse was 17 and too young to buy a firearm.
Three months later, Rittenhouse used the rifle to shoot three people at a Kenosha protest.
He killed two of them.
A jury acquitted him of multiple charges in November.
