I was thinking of that law more in the terms of say, adult gives kid drugs to take but instead the kid hands the drugs into the authorities. You can still find the drug pusher guilty of the charge despite the fact that the kid didn't do the delinquent act of taking the drugs. That's why I said could.

Agreed. I can't imagine a more sweetheart deal. Also tbh, I don't fault Black too much. It's not like He was some gun-runner. He made a bad decision to buy the rifle a little early for his close-in-age buddy, kind of like buying beer to share with a just-south-of-21 friend. A lot of us have done similar.
Yeah. Based on how I'd read the giving a minor a gun part of the law I figured there was no way Black was going to get off on those charges if it came to trial, regardless of Rittenhouse's verdict. I feel like this deal is probably the best thing that could have happened short of the prosecution dropping the charges.
