hammer of justice

What I learned from today’s hearing:

1.) BERNIE DELARIONDA says that ABC was present when Crump audio taped DeeDee’s interview.

2.) O’Mara complains, he doesn’t have a list of witnesses who heard screams for help. BERNIE DE LA RIONDA says look in the documents, look at witness statements.
De la Rionda basically tells O’Mara, look through the statements yourself! My question, why doesn’t the defense ask the question in deposition. It’s that easy.

3.) O’Mara motioned Judge Nelson to “Modify Conditions of Release”. He puts Sr. probation officer Adam Vinton on the stand to testify to GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’S compliance. He goes on to say that George Zimmermanis still in fear for his life, yada, yada..

4.) BERNIE DELARIONDA gently reminds the court of Zimmerman’s past transgressions such as his wife Shellie lying about their finances at the first bond hearing and withholding his valid up-to-date passport from the court which revoked his initial bond raising it from $150,000 to $1Million.

5.) BERNIE DELARIONDA argued to Judge Nelson that if GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was in such fear for his life then why did he appear on national television, why does he come through the front door of the courthouse with reporters at his heels, why does he continue to ask the public for money and presently offering his autograph for donations. Wouldn’t GEORGE ZIMMERMAN be safer if he stayed off of television?

6.) BERNIE DELARIONDA basically pointed out that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is seeking media attention and does not agree with O’Mara’s motions because he constantly inserts inaccurate information which he knows will be read by the public. Here’s O’Mara’s latest motion.

7.) BERNIE DELARIONDA also addressed these meetings that were taking place before GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was arrested. BERNIE DELARIONDA added that he’d just received a letter, what he called Brady material from Atty. Jose Baez who is representing Investigator Serino. In this notice Baez says that investigators O’Connor, Randy Smith and Chris Serino wanted to charge GEORGE ZIMMERMAN with 2nd degree murder within 2 weeks of the investigation. See page 49 of 73 for Officer Santiago’s deposition.

8.) In the end, all of O’Mara’s pleading was for naught. Judge Debra Nelson denied his motion to modify Zimmerman’s conditions for release. Zimmerman will continue to live in Seminole County and continue to wear his GPS ankle bracelet.

And Thank God,
Judge Nelson clarified the “No Contact with the Martins” order.
