GZ atty O'Mara shrugs

The Dummy Defense that O’Mara didn’t need.

-Mark O’Mara’s opening statement,  “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, first off, I’d like you to know, “my client is STUPID”.”

-Juror One:  How stupid is he?

-Mark O’Mara:  For instance, my client went on the Sean Hannity Show, a nationally televised talk show and actually said that the killing of Trayvon Martin was all in God’s plan.

-Juror Two:  Oh I see Mr. O’Mara, he is pretty dumb.  What else did your dumb client do besides hiring you?

-Mark O’Mara: Well, in all fairness, you have to understand, “I couldn’t help myself.  I mean the cameras, the lights, the media attention, I just couldn’t pass it up.  Besides I got $40,000 out the deal to redo my office.”

-Juror Two:  ::wink::  $40,000, it must be real nice.

-Mark O’Mara:  Well, it WAS but as you can see my client George Zimmerman has gained 100 lbs. since he’s hired me.  Unfortunately he’s broken a few chairs in the waiting room but on a happy note, from my understanding George says he’s going replace every last one of them.  He says he’s going to sue people after he wins this case ::hehehe::  However between me, you and the judge, I don’t have any money to put on a real defense that’s why I’m using the Dummy Defense.  This new defense strategy will set precedent in the justice system and I’m going to be famous.  Any questions?

-Juror Three:  Mr. O’Mara, can you tell us of any other stupid things your client has done besides the Sean Hannity atrocity?

-Mark O’Mara: You mean besides the reason we’re all here?  Besides that time he approached a 17 year old teenager who was walking home in the rain on a public street at 7pm and somehow managed to kill him?

-Juror Three: Yeah, besides that.

-Mark O’Mara:  Well, let’s see.  It was reported in the documents that my client once turned off his mother’s electricity, locked the box and left.  Oh yeah, George has this habit of calling 911.  Do you know that he’s called 911 about 47 times in the last 3 years?  That’s a point I’d like to make. My client is delusional.  He thinks he’s law enforcement.  Now, if that’s not dumb?  I should also tell you, my client is not only dumb, he’s an asshole.

:: All the jurors nod their heads in agreement ::

-Mark O’Mara continues:  blah, ba blah, ba blah blah blah….

 

 

And to think that not even an acquittal for committing cold blooded murder has George Zimmerman smartened up.  He is the scum of the earth and I hope everyday of his pitiful existence that he struggles with the image of Trayvon Martin’s dying face and how easily he could have avoided the entire situation by simply waiting for the officer to arrive.  Shame on him.  He wasn’t a real cop for a reason.

Since George Zimmerman’s  unbelievable 2nd degree murder acquittal July 13th, just months ago, he’s been in the news on three occasions.

He was caught speeding in Texas, speeding in Florida and most recently he was involved in a domestic dispute involving his wife Shellie who has recently filed for a divorce. Things apparently got heated during a property exchange causing George’s estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman to call law enforcement due to George Zimmerman’s unruly behavior at her father’s home.  Apparently Georgie isn’t very happy with the break-up.

18 months ago Shellie Zimmerman who had lied to Judge Kenneth Lester in order to get a reduced bail for her beloved husband was recently convicted of misdemeanor perjury.  Ironically the only person who’s paid any price having to do with Trayvon Martin’s murder is Shellie.

 No good deed goes unpunished

It was reported during Monday’s property exchange things turned ugly.  Shellie claimed that her estranged husband threatened her with a gun. George, who showed up with 7 of his buddies punched her father in the nose and conveniently broke Shellie’s IPad she was using to video tape the property exchange.

Here’s the 911 call

In a very telling remark George Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara had this to say, “I’ve come to know them as a family, and it’s not a good idea to get between them.”

After the ordeal, Shellie recanted her story and she and her father refused to press charges against George Zimmerman, however the investigation continues as investigators believe the mobile device captured video of the dispute.

Snipped:

Investigators believe the mobile device captured video of Monday’s dispute at the Lake Mary house where the Zimmermans had been living. Shellie Zimmerman told authorities he smashed it to pieces, but the former neighborhood watch volunteer said she hit him with it. Police said it was examined at a crime lab, and the chances of them being able to watch the video were “outstanding,” but it wasn’t clear when that might happen.

Stay tuned as the George Zimmerman saga continues.  It seems that the man refuses to go away until he finds himself in jail again.

On Friday, July 5th, after 9 days of testimony, the State of Florida rest it’s case against George Zimmerman, accused of 2nd degree murder in the senseless shooting of 17-year old Trayvon Benjamin Martin.  As expected in most murder trials, Mark O’Mara and co-counsel Don West asked Judge Debra Nelson for an acquittal which she denied. With that the defense began.  Attorney Mark O’Mara calls his first witness, George Zimmerman’s mother. Gladys Zimmerman who swore under oath that the voice she heard on the 911 call was the voice of her son.

When O’Mara asked, “Why do you think it’s George?” Gladys simply replied, ” Because he’s MY son”  Bingo!  Although she hasn’t heard him like that before, she’s certain it was her son George.  Very good Gladys. Now you can go for ice cream with Donny and Molly.

Just as quickly as George’s mother’s testimony came to a close, up to the stand was Jorge Mesa, George Zimmerman’s uncle.

Jorge Mesa, who happens to have ties with Orange County, Florida has been a courthouse deputy since 2007.  I should add, George’s father, Robert Zimmerman Sr. is a retired Supreme Court Magistrate judge from Virginia. And I wonder why George Zimmerman’s case wasn’t brought to a Grand Jury.

Jorge Mesa testified that he hadn’t heard the 911 call with screams for help in the background until he heard it over television while his wife was watching the news.  He admitted that he knew his nephew was involved in a shooting but was trying not to get involved.  Ashamed, perhaps?  I can’t help but wonder if Uncle Jorge is the father of the niece George Zimmerman is accused of molesting years ago. The girl was at one point on the State witness list but for reasons unknown, Bernie de la Rionda chose not to call her to the stand.

Mr. Mesa went on to say that he knew the screams he heard belonged to George because he heard him sound like that when he was laughing.  Does laughing ever sound like screaming?  Or is this what George sounded like when he was kicking his ass for touching his daughter?   I really don’t know who the poor child belonged to. One can only speculate…the child was George’s cousin.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda’s cross examination was short and methodical.  He basically emphasized that he was in fact “George’s uncle” and with that bit of “consider the source”, Jorge Mesa was dismissed.

Considering the defense’s opening witnesses,  I can only presume that their case hinges heavily on the 911 screams.  As I recall, in the same 911 call in which the screams can be heard, the female caller did say, “They” are screaming for help” meaning more than one person.  I’m hoping that the jury will listen very closely to the tapes.  If they do, in the midst of the screams, they will hear, “I’m beggin you!”.  George Zimmerman certainly didn’t scream that.  He had the gun.

Court will continue today at 9:00am.

“To See, To Speak”

We are finally here, Day One of the George Zimmerman trial.  The defense team, Mark O’Mara and Don West along with Asst. State Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda have the enormous task of finding 6 unbiased, unaware swamp dwelling people who live in Seminole county Florida who have not heard of this case or more realistically have not formed an opinion of this case.  The State and the defense team will then decide, if they have formed an opinion, do they still have the ability to be fair?

On February 26, 2012, the defendant George Zimmerman called non-emergency 911 to report a suspicious person.  Listen to non-emergercy call below.

Initally Sanford Police Department did not arrest George Zimmerman.  The case was later handed over to Florida State Attorney Angela Corey who subsequentally indicted Zimmerman charging him with 2nd degree murder.

In America, most of our trials begin with jury selection or vior dire.

voir dire

(vwahr [with a near-silent “r”] deer) n. from French “to see to speak,” the questioning of prospective jurors by a judge and attorneys in court. Voir dire is used to determine if any juror is biased and/or cannot deal with the issues fairly, or if there is cause not to allow a juror to serve (knowledge of the facts; acquaintanceship with parties, witnesses or attorneys; occupation which might lead to bias; prejudice against the death penalty; or previous experiences such as having been sued in a similar case). Actually one of the unspoken purposes of the voir dire is for the attorneys to get a feel for the personalities and likely views of the people on the jury panel. In some courts the judge asks most of the questions, while in others the lawyers are given substantial latitude and time to ask questions. Some jurors may be dismissed for cause by the judge, and the attorneys may excuse others in “peremptory” challenges without stating any reason. 2) questions asked to determine the competence of an alleged expert witness. 3) any hearing outside the presence of the jury held during trial.

After filling out a questionnaire, the 500 selected potential jurors have been broken up into 3 groups.  Today the State and defense will question the first group, tomorrow the second group and Wednesday the third group.  The questionnaire has not been made public.

Before today there was still a question regarding audio experts. I’m relieved to learn that on Saturday Judge Debra Nelson, that the expert opinions regarding the “death sheik” will be admissible.  I’m not surprised to add, defense attorney Mark O’Mara once again asked for a continuance which was denied and O’Mara says he has a witness he’d like to had to the list.

Let justice prevail!

“Denied, Denied, Denied” were the harmonious words heard over and over again”

After filing mutiple motions in a last ditch effort to build a reasonable defense for George Zimmerman, defense attorneys Mark O’Mara and Don West walked gloomily out of the courtroom today. Without much help from Judge Nelson, their day was a wash.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson ruled that defense attorneys will not be able to mention Trayvon Martin’s school suspension, alleged participation in fights or his past use of marijuana.

Trayvon Martin

As any first-year law student would know, Mark O’Mara’s strategy to post online photos and text messages from Trayvon’s cellphone was not only a way to victimize Zimmerman’s victim again but a blatant sleazy attempt to tarnish the jury pool. As expected, O’Mara’s request to have such garbage entered into evidence was quickly denied.

In other rulings, the judge refused to allow jurors to travel to the crime scene predicting that the excursion would be “a logistical nightmare” and she also refused the defense request to have jurors sequestered.  As for the defense’s request to delay the start of the trial, that was denied too. As Judge Debra Nelson previously ruled, the trial will begin June 10, 2013.

As the 2 hour hearing continued, the prosecution won another victory. Judge Nelson granted their request to withhold information as to why it took so long for Zimmerman to be charged with second-degree murder. She ruled that no dialogue or information will be allow from officers of Sanford Police Dept. or State attorneys as to why they originally decided not to arrest George Zimmerman.
GZ hearing 5 28
However, she granted the defense team’s request to hold a hearing as to whether the prosecution failed to turn over evidence.  A former attorney in the State’s office has charged the prosecution with withholding Trayvon’s cellphone photographs and text messages.  From my understanding this issue will be handled sometime after the trial.

Judge Nelson announced she will hold a Frye hearing on June 6th to hear arguments about whether to admit testimony from state audio expert, Alan Reich.  In this report sent to prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda, Mr. Reich says the audio of a 911 call has the voice of Trayvon Martin in a screaming trembling voice, “I’m begging you.”

After the Hearing

Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon’s family, said his family was pleased with the judge’s rulings. “Trayvon Martin is not on trial,” Mr. Crump said.

After the hearing, Robert Zimmerman, George’s brother, called on the state to drop the second-degree murder charges.  He added “In this country. You don’t charge someone with any crime solely to assuage the concerns of misinformed masses,” he said, according to CNN.

After being ill for so long and away from the Trayvon Martin murder case,  it was good to return just in time to watch the George Zimmerman April 30th hearing.  For the most part,  I think now, “I’m all caught up!”

Wow! Thank you Trent!  He’s my hero, without Trent, owner of TheStateoftheinternet.com I would be lost.  After following murder trials for most of my life, I can honestly say — “I’ve never seen anything like this one”.   A prosecutor questions the defense attorney on the stand!  What can I say?

For those who missed it, I’ll lead you to YouTube.

Here are the first few videos of the 13 Trent posted.  Be ready to grit your teeth.  Mark O’Mara and Don West’s pitiful desperation is so thick you can cut it with a knife.  The fact is, “George Zimmerman has NO defense.”

Mark O'Mara 3-22

After months of playing Public Relations Guy and constantly pandering to the media, George Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara has finally decided to get to the work he was hired to do.

He began last Wednesday, March 13th deposing the ever-elusive Witness 8 aka DeeDee.  “DeeDee” is code name for Trayvon Martin’s friend whom he happened to be on the phone with on the night he was shot down by George Zimmerman.

Unbeknownst to the shooter, Trayvon had been on his cell phone with DeeDee during most of the evening of February 26th.

It’s unknown to the public how or why Sanford investigators and asst. prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda overlooked these important phone calls taking place during this crucial time frame, nonetheless T-Mobile phone records show DeeDee was in contact by cell phone with Trayvon Martin on 4 occasions beginning at  6:54pm.

Call record:

Incoming — I minute — 6:54pm

Incoming — 18 minutes — 6:54pm

Incoming — 1 minute — 7:04pm

Incoming — 4 minutes — 7:12pm

 *It’s important to note that on the night of February 26th it was raining heavily.  It’s probable that a phone call could have been dropped due to the weather.       

Records show George Zimmerman called non-emergency 911 at 7:09PM — EST.   According to transcripts, the call lasted 4:07 minutes which indicates the call ended at approximately 7:13PM — EST.

Obviously it’s this information that makes Witness 8 vital to the case. I’m still amazed that DeeDee’s phone calls were overlooked by law enforcement and prosecutors.  Had it not been for Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin’s personal attorney Benjamin Crump, its likely Witness 8 would have been lost in the paper work.

It was attorney Benjamin Crump who initially spoke with Witness 8 who related her version (via telephone) of what happened on night Trayvon Martin was killed.

Just by the fact that George Zimmerman walked out of Sanford Police Department a free man on the night of the shooting and then overlooking “DeeDee” as a key witness is not acceptable in any murder investigation.  In my point of view, it’s these types of faux pa’s and mistakes that have caused so much public distrust in this case.

    ~~~

So after the much awaited “DeeDee Deposition”, the next day March 14th, O’Mara began at 9am, to depose Brandi Green, Tracy Martin’s girlfriend whose home Trayvon was en route when he was approached by George Zimmerman.  It was her 8-year old son who was patiently waiting at home for Trayvon’s return with his bag of Skittles candy and his Arizona Watermelon Iced Tea.

Next on O’Mara’s agenda was the 3PM deposition of Mark Osterman.  Mark Osterman is said to be George Zimmerman’s best friend and confidante.  It was Mark Osterman who taught Zimmerman how to shoot a gun and it was Mark Osterman’s father who wrote a book about a cop turned vigilante. Ironically, George Zimmerman being of weak mind was probably more impressed with the book than most.  Considering Zimmerman acted out February 26th, it seems “vigilantism” is of great interest to him.  Last but not least, scheduled for 4PM was Witness 25 — civilian.

More work for Mark O’Mara as he begins Friday, March 15th with deposing Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother.  Later that day he deposed her son Jahvaris Martin.  Finally O’Mara’s day was complete.

It’s good to see Mark O’Mara is taking this case a little more seriously.  Up until now, he seemed to be depending on the “Stand Your Ground” hearing to put this case to an end but I think Judge Debra Nelson has given him and co-counsel, Attorney Donald West a “reality check.”

The trial will begin on June 10, 2013

March 5, 2013, in the courtroom of Judge Debra Nelson, Zimmerman’s  hearing is scheduled for 8:30am CST.   According to GZLegal.com, George Zimmerman is not expected to attend.   Attorneys Mark O’Mara and Don West are prepared to argue the following Motions.

  • Defendant’s Motion for Specific Discovery from Florida Department of Law Enforcement
  • Defendant’s Motion for Specific Discovery.  (3 videos)
  • Defendant’s Motion for Supoena Duces Tecum to State Witness, Civilian Witness 8

Entry of the Following Orders:

  • Order Granting Issuance of Supoena Duces Tecum  (audio recordings0
  • Order Granting Issuance of Supoena Duces Tecum  (Trayvon Martin’s Twitter and Facebook)
  • Order Granting Issuance of Supoena Duces Tecum  (Civilian Witness 8’s Twitter and Facebook)

Zim - handsBut I wonder…
Will today’s hearing determine if George Zimmerman’s “Stand Your Ground” hearing actually will happen April 22nd?
At the “Stand Your Ground” hearing, Zimmerman’s attorneys will have to convince the judge of three things:

•Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity.
•Zimmerman was being attacked in a place he had a right to be.
•Zimmerman had the reasonable belief that his life and his safety were in danger as a result of an overt act or perceived threat committed by Martin.

As we all know, if George Zimmerman’s attorneys are successful at the “Stand Yout Ground” hearing, George Zimmerman goes home a free man.

~~~~~~

If not, he’ll have to convince 6 jurors that the shooting was in self-defense

He’ll have to explain to all 6 jurors, why he chose to follow Trayvon Martin.
He’ll have to explain why he called non-emergency 911.
He’ll have to explain each and every action he took to “keep an eye” Trayvon.
He’ll have to explain his reason for leaving the safety of his vehicle, on a dark and rainy night to pursue what he perceived “a suspicious man”.
He’ll have to give all 6 jurors a reason for not following the implied instruction given by the NEN dispatcher to NOT follow this young man.
He’ll have to explain exactly what happened after he ended the NEN call.
He’ll have to explain HOW – did he and the victim, finally meet face to face.
He’ll have to explain WHY, since he was a trained Neighborhood Watch Captain that he didn’t know proper protocol as to how to handle suspicious persons.
He’ll have to explain HOW he could be so dumb NOT to realize that HE George Zimmerman, “Neighborhood Watch Captain” had become THE SUSPICIOUS PERSON.

As a matter of fact, the person that Trayvon Martin was trying to figure out wasn’t just some creep, “just standing there looking at all of the houses.”

The creep Trayvon Martin was looking at was a 28-year old male, in a blue truck, driving very slowly down the street in the rain with his headlights off, watching his every move.

The person Trayvon Martin was watching suddenly appeared on foot, following and getting closer to him without saying a word.

He’ll have to explain the reason WHY, as a common courtesy, he didn’t say to this young man, “Hi there..Can I talk to you..I’m the Neighborhood Watch Captain”

Yes George, please EXPLAIN.

GZ Big Boy 2

As we all know, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is a nefarious, calculating individual.   Raised by his father Robert Zimmerman Sr., a retired Virginia Supreme Court Magistrate judge and his mother, a court clerk, George would naturally glean some legal knowledge, however this knowledge would be just enough to hang himself which it actually did on the night of February 26, 2012 when he stalked, harassed and shot to death a young man named Trayvon Martin. Martin was only 21 days into his 17th year of life.

After months of avoiding arrest, months of protesting and national discontent, State Attorney Angela Corey finally announced George Zimmerman was under arrest.  At 9:12 EDT on April 11, 2012 GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was in the custody of John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida.

Since then there’s been lots of hoopla and national debate as to how and why GEORGE ZIMMERMAN would get out of his vehicle, stalk and pursue a young man walking home from a local 7-11 convenience store wearing a phone ear piece and carrying only a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona Tea.

In my research of Mr. Zimmerman, I found that he’s an arrogant wanna-be-cop whose violence and buffoonery has caused much annoyance to many people.

“Usually he was just a cool guy. He liked to drink and hang with the women like the rest of us,” he said. “But it was like Jekyll and Hyde. When the dude snapped, he snapped.” “He had a temper and he became a liability,” the man said. “One time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk. George lost his cool and totally overreacted,” he said. “It was weird, because he was such a cool guy, but he got all nuts. He picked her up and threw her. It was pure rage. She twisted her ankle. Everyone was flipping out.”

These are the words from an ex-coworker who worked with George Zimmerman as a bouncer for illegal parties from 2001 to 2005.  After this incident Zimmerman was fired for being overly aggressive.

Violent George

2005 was the same year Zimmerman was arrested for fighting with a cop trying to arrest his friend for underage drinking and the same year he and his ex-fiancée took out protective orders against each other.

Remarkably George Zimmerman has three closed arrests 7/18/05 for resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer div 10……..8/9/05 for domestic violence div 44….. And again on 8/10/05 domestic violence div 46.

Not ONE news outlet had the gumption to publish this information.  However, the media happily reported the Sanford Police leak — the character defaming information about Mr. Martin, yet George Zimmerman’s background was kept secret. Disturbing, to say the least.

It makes one wonder if the Zimmerman’s had connections with Sanford Police Department or if the fact that George Zimmerman’s father being a retired Supreme Court Magistrate and his mother Gladys Zimmerman, a retired court clerk played a part in swaying the media.

Or perhaps local media was just doing their part to help save face for the Sanford Police Dept? After all they dropped the ball by not arresting George Zimmerman in the first place. 

We may never know the truth but the facts remain the same.

Unfortunately for Sanford PD and George Zimmerman, the Martin family would be heard

Trayvon Martin wasn’t the thug Sanford PD had hoped and in no sense of the word are Trayvon’s parents Slackers or uncaring, unconcerned parents.   His father Tracy Martin drove trucks for a living and in his spare time coached his son’s football team.   He’s also a high ranking official of the Free Masons.   His mother Sybrina Fulton is a 23-year veteran of the Miami-Dade County housing authority.

~~~

Since watching the February 5, 2013 hearing I find myself feeling baffled and confused. What is George Zimmerman’s defense team up to?  “No good” perhaps? During the hearing O’Mara publicly announced “The GEORGE ZIMMERMAN Fund” had dwindled to $5,000 and in the same sentence said there were not enough funds available for him to build a defense for his client.

GZ atty Donald West

GZ atty O'Mara shrugs

Are Attorney Mark O’Mara and Co-counsel Donald West looking for a way out?

Will George Zimmerman represent himself?

Mark O’Mara has handled this case since April 2012.  He has since gone through at least $200,000 of the George Zimmerman Defense Fund.  I’m figuring $200,000 because George and wife Shellie wheeled and dealed away over $130,000 on personal bills and family members before O’Mara officially had control over the fund.   

In the meantime, Mark O’Mara, George and Shellie Zimmerman were hit with a lawsuit filed by Associated Investigative Services for not paying for provided security services. O’Mara asked AIS for more time to pay but apparently AIS was not as sympathetic of his client as he hoped.  The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, among other claims, and requests a monetary judgment of $27,027.08.  According to the O’Mara, AIS was once charging Zimmerman $7,000 a week for security.  O’Mara says the Zimmerman’s are now paying $700 a week.

Big Boy George

It’s hard not to notice George Zimmerman’s obesity.  He’s said to be close to 300lbs which is nearly 100lbs more than he weighed the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. I highly suspect his weight gain is due to lack of  medication, particularly Adderall.  During one of GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s many police interviews he admitted to Investigator Chris Serino that he was prescribed Adderall for ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder  which raises the question,

“Why would his doctor stop prescribing this particular medication?”

Did he stop having ADHD?

In my opinion, during the time frame of the shooting George Zimmerman was abusing Adderall to control his weight which is not unusual.  Adderall is an amphetamine and is also prescribed by doctors to control over eating and weight gain.  Amphetamines are also known to cause aggression.

Could this be George Zimmerman’s defense?

Adderall caused his aggression towards a young boy walking in the rain?

I wonder.

~~~

According to the Huffington Post, Judge Debra Nelson has reserved the final two weeks of April for the immunity hearing.  She had also requested an initial jury pool of 500 for June’s second-degree murder trial.

Stayed tuned.  I’m sure there’s more to come in “The George Zimmerman Saga”.  If I’m reading my crystal ball correctly, I see George Zimmerman behind bars for many years beginning sometime in late June or early July 2013!

Justice Served!

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…

Snipped:

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.
