Ricky Schroder Helps Get Kenosha Shooter Out of Jail

In a world where Scott Baio regularly appears on right-wing news programs defending Donald Trump, there’s no point in acting surprised when an ’80s teen heartthrob makes an appearance with MAGA provocateurs.

This time it is Ricky Schroder, star of the Jon Voight boxing film The Champ, sitcom Silver Spoons and, later, Lonesome Dove, who was publicly thanked by attorney L. Lin Wood on Twitter for contributing to the $2 million bail for Kyle Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse is a 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois accused of shooting and killing two protestors in Kenosha, Wisconsin in late August. He was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide as well as additional charges. Rittenhouse claims he was acting in self-defense and that he doesn’t regret it.

“Free at last!!!” attorney Wood wrote on Twitter, with a picture of Rittenhouse flanked by Schroder and attorney John Pierce. Wood’s previous clients include Herman Cain, Gary Condit, the parents of JonBenet Ramsey, and Richard Jewell. He has recently filed lawsuits in Georgia on behalf of Donald Trump‘s reelection campaign, and his Twitter bio includes the QAnon phrase #WWG1WGA.

Wood also thanked MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell for “putting us over the top.”

Schroder’s Twitter timeline currently consists of one message, saying that he has decamped for the conservative social network Parler.

In 2019, prosecutors declined to file charges against Schroder after two arrests had been made during domestic disputes.
