Zimmerman’s Potential Strategy Revealed

Fat GZ in courtOn January 18, 2013, according to reporter Tony Pipitone, of ClickOrlando.com, George Zimmerman’s lead attorney Mark O’Mara has potentially revealed his hand. George Zimmerman is charged in the second-degree murder of 17yo Trayvon Martin.  Zimmerman claims he shot Trayvon Martin in self defense after he stalked and followed the boy as he was walking home from a local convenience store.

At the time of the incident, George Zimmerman was under the influence of Adderall, a drug prescribed to him for ADHD, a disorder usually found in children but sometimes in adults.  An adult may experience restlessness instead of hyperactivity. In addition, adults with ADHD consistently have problems with interpersonal relationships and employment.  According to reports, this describes George Zimmerman to a tee.

O’Mara’s Big Bag of Tricks

In O’Mara’s big bag of tricks, he plans to use surveillance videos, evidence receipts, warrants and video of Zimmerman surrendering to authorities. These were some of the items listed in a notice to prosecutors filed by O’Mara.

Here are additional items listed in the notice:

• Surveillance video from a Sam’s Club, Kohl’s and apartment complex — all nearby the *Retreat at Twin Lakes complex where Zimmerman lived and Martin was killed
• A Crimeline report regarding an unidentified 8-year-old potential witness

• A letter from former state attorney Norm Wolfinger requesting the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to assist in the case (before he recused himself and a special prosecutor was appointed)

• The entire Sanford Police case file Wolfinger’s office turned over to FDLE
• FDLE warrants, subpoenas and affidavits seeking Martin’s cell phone and its records
• Various evidence and property receipts.

In another motion filed by O’Mara…


The defense is also seeking records from ABC News regarding an interview the Martin family attorney did with a key witness in the case last March. At least one ABC News employee witnessed the telephone call with Witness 8, a young woman Martin was talking to on the phone as he was being followed by Zimmerman on the day Zimmerman shot Martin to death.

Once again, DeeDee, listed as Witness 8 comes into focus. DeeDee is Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, who happened to be on the phone with Trayvon off and on during the time George Zimmerman was following him.

DeeDee will testify that she heard Trayvon Martin ask Zimmerman, “what are you following me for” seconds before the phone went dead and for that the defense would like nothing more than to eliminate her from the list of witnesses.

For obvious reasons…

O’Mara motioned for a subpoena of ABC News, O’Mara claims he has received recordings revealing less than half of what was said in a 26-minute telephone call. “There are several ‘starts’ and ‘stops’ and other obvious edit indicators” on the recordings turned over by Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, the motion states.


In other news its been reported that the the defense team has recently received Trayvon Martin’s school records which GZLegal.com has not yet released to the public. However, O’Mara announced he may release portions of the report at a later date and at his discretion. I’ll assume if he doesn’t release anything soon, it’s because Trayvon Martin’s school records are clean.


The next hearing is scheduled for February 5th which also marks the 18th birthday of Trayvon Martin. Trayvon Martin was stalked and gunned down by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012.
