Former Silver Spoons actor Ricky Schroder has come to the aid of accused murder Kyle Rittenhouse by paying a portion of his bail.
Rittenhouse, who stands accused of shooting and killing two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the summer, is out on bail after posting the $2 million cash bond set by a judge earlier this month. According to Rittenhouse’s attorney (via New York Daily News), Schroder and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell were responsible for “for putting us over the top” and covering the cost of Rittenhouse’s bail.
Last year, Schroder faced his own legal issues after twice begin arrested over allegations of domestic abuse. The former child star, whose last TV credit came in 2014 with an appearance on the reality cooking show Hell’s Kitchen, was not prosecuted for either allegation.
