Trayvon Martin Photos Not Allowed in Zimmerman Opening Statements

George Zimmerman has lost another round in his upcoming 2nd degree murder case. ABC News reports that the judge presiding over the case will not permit Zimmerman’s lawyers to mention pictures of drugs or guns found on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone during opening statements.

“We have a lot of evidence that marijuana use had something to do with the event,” Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara said during a hearing today in Sanford, Fla. “It could have affected his behavior.”

But Circuit Judge Debra Nelson agreed with the prosecution that the photos on Trayvon’s cell phone are irrelevant — at least in the opening statements.

The former self-appointed neighborhood watchman is accused of stalking and murdering 17-year-old Trayvon as the high school student made his way to the home of his father’s friend inside a gated community in February 2012.

Trayvon, who was from Miami, was visiting his father in Sanford after being suspended from school.

Zimmerman, 29, has pleaded not guilty. The trial is set for June 10.

    No matter what Trayvon was guilty of that night, this fat fuck had no business stalking him, and no authority to murder him. I could care less what the Fl. law says,,,May him and everyone who supports him be cursed for life. May the earth open up and swallow them whole.

    So they want to enter “character evidence” and its usually not admitted in a court of law unless there is an applicable exception…………………….why his lawyer is trying to do this is beyond me. Its banned for that very reason, not to prejudice jurors; even if you have a long criminal history, its usually not relevant to the crime at hand, especially if it shows you have a predilection for committing that type of crime. I could go into a long legal lecture, but I will just say what everyone else has said: its NOT relevant to the crime in question.

      Not a known fact, it is HEARSAY based upon what has been dug up visually about the boy. Why? Because they want to paint a picture that he was trouble when the truth is, he was a kid who did kid shit and didn’t deserve to die. but YOU @ Angelhair are an idiot and your comments here prove that fact every time.
