Prosecutor: ‘I cannot explain why the drone footage was compressed’

The jury in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial surprised everyone by asking to rewatch the drone video footage that the prosecution allegedly withheld from the defense.

According to Fox News, the request by the jury was not “unexpected” for a complicated case.

Late Tuesday, the jury retired for the night after failing to reach a verdict. Two jurors allegedly withheld their verdicts out of fear of public “backlash”.

Rittenhouse’s legal team filed a motion for a mistrial late Tuesday after they learned the prosecution had a high-definition video of Rittenhouse shooting the first victim.

The defense argued that the high-def video was not given to them until Friday or Saturday.

On Wednesday morning, the jury halted deliberations again to request they be allowed to rewatch the drone footage of the August 25, 2020 shooting of Antifa protester Joseph Rosenbaum.

The prosecution explained to Judge Bruce Schroeder why the copy of drone footage was “compressed” which caused the video to be blurred.

Assistant District Attorney James Kraus claimed he sent the high-definition video footage to one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys. He claims the video was “compressed” by the lawyer’s Android phone.

Evidence is usually emailed between attorneys via Dropbox.
