Headlines Health Politics U.S.

Court documents, obtained by independent investigators, reportedly show that Joseph Rosenbaum, one of the men shot by Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, WI, last month, was convicted of molesting, abusing and sodomizing five boys aged 9 to 11 years old.

Defenders of Rosenbaum had been putting forth the notion that his offenses weren’t so serious, theorizing that he had consensual sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old boy when he was 18, for example.

The documents recently revealed show his offenses were much more serious.

The eleven counts of sex crimes that Rosenbaum was charged with include the groping the victims’ genitals, engaging in oral sex with the victims, and sodomizing the victims, according to the report.

Rosenbaum served 12 and a half years for his crimes in an Arizona prison.
