A Chicago-based non-profit has posted bond for Chrystul Kizer, the Milwaukee teen who's been sitting in jail for two years awaiting trial for killing a Kenosha man who'd been sexually assaulting her. The Chicago Community Bond Fund tells the Kenosha News that it stepped in Monday afternoon and paid $400,000. Kizer's case currently sits in appeals court where justices are expected to decide just how much leeway victims of sexual assault may receive for crimes committed as a result of their status as victims. District Attorney Michael Graveley has argued that while there's no doubt that Kizer was assaulted by the man she killed, there's no evidence to back up Kizer's claim that she was trafficked to other men. Graveley says the evidence suggests that Kizer killed the man because she wanted to steal his car. As a condition of her release, Kizer is to live with her mother in Milwaukee, earn her GED and stay out of trouble. A status hearing is scheduled for later this year.
