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.

Mr. Black basically got a ticket and is now much poorer, but not with a felony conviction and his Constitutional Rights remain in place.  I do hope Kyle wins the well-deserved lawsuits and is thoughtful enough to cover Mr. Black’s legal bills as his legal issues were just political pettiness rather than Justice being served.

If there is some GoFundMe established for this guy, let me know so I can link it. He should not be forgotten in the post-coital mental recycling of the case.

  1. I love the headline to try and keep the narrative going. ‘See, he admitted he’s guilty of murdering 2 black people’.

  2. Comparatively, this is a win, but it would be better if they either dropped the charges completely or down to littering or something even more benign than “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” which still sounds worse than it is.

  3. Last chapter? Hardly. The left is nothing if not completely vindictive. Kyle’s still a very young man. He’ll do something stupid and immature (as we all did back in the day). He’ll go party and get drunk, or get his picture taken while smoking a joint, maybe get pulled over for speeding, or something of the sort. And then they’ll pounce. They’ll drag it all back out. They’ll hound him for every little mistake as vengeance for getting a not guilty verdict. This isn’t the end. When he enrolls in college, they’ll try to get him kicked out (already happening, I think). When he tries to get a job, they’ll dox him and try to get him fired. Nope, for the crime of defending his life he’ll never be able to lead a normal life.

    1. Look what they did to George Zimmerman. Could not so much as stand up without getting blasted for some form of racism from the left.

  4. Hit post too soon…

    IANAL warning, but doesn’t one have to have knowledge/intent before they can “contribute to the delinquency of a minor.” Is simply allowing a teenager to possess a firearm a deliberate act on the path to delinquency?

    Can you be charged with contributing to delinquency if you allow a teenager to drive your car to a party, even though you have no idea whether alcohol would be available?

    This one sounds way too suspicious.

    1. Not to mention that it’s nonsense to claim “delinquency” when the action in question (the teen possessing a long arm) was 100% legal.

    2. It doesn’t matter if that’s what he actually did or not. It’s a plea agreement, and at this point it lets both parties end their ordeal. The state gets to claim “something” out of the charges filed, and Mr. Black gets to put this case behind him without the risk of criminal conviction. Both parties end the matter with a result they can live with, and both with something more (or less, depending on which side you’re on) that they were hoping for.

      The facts may not fit the ultimate charge. but fore plea agreement purposes, it doesn’t matter. It’s the nature of plea bargaining, at least in a case such as this.

      And if you’re going to rant that plea bargaining should be illegal, don’t bother. That can’t happen. It is a fact, and it cannot and will not go away.

  5. Contributing to the delinquency of a minor…isn’t that the same charge you get if you buy beer for a 17 year old?

  6. Mr. Black was charged with TWO FELONIES.

    His Lawyer got it knocked down to a Citation and a Fine. ZERO Jail Time. NO FELONY. NO Trial.

    He has a $2,000.00 fine to pay. If he went to trial, $2,000 would not even cover the lawyer bill for a single day of trial. Mr. Black definitely came out ahead.
