Prosecutor In George Zimmerman Case Leaks Witness Names

 

The identity of witnesses in the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin have been leaked. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda revealed the names via a summary sheet which is accessible to the public.

Zimmerman’s attorney, Mike O’Mara announced last month that his witnesses will be identified by numbers in an attempt to maintain their privacy. According to the defense team, there are between 50-0 witnesses involved in the case.

It is unclear whether Judge Debra Nelson will take action against De la Rionda for not keeping the information confidential.

In October, Nelson set a June 10 trial date for Zimmerman. O’Mara has asked for more time to prepare a case in defense of his 29-year-old client.

Zimmerman shot Martin, a 17-year-old on his way to his father’s girlfriend’s home after leaving a local 7-Eleven store, in late February.

A former neighborhood watch captain, Zimmerman denies racially profiling Martin and claims to have shot the high school student out of self-defense. The two engaged in a physical altercation, in which Zimmerman alleges to have had his head bashed into the concrete.

During a phone call with a 911 operator Zimmerman was instructed not to pursue Martin, who he saw as suspicious, but the one-time aspiring police officer did not follow orders and confronted the unarmed teen.

After being charged with second-degree murder earlier in the year, Zimmerman was taken into custody but released on $1 million. He has gone into hiding as a safety precaution.

    If ya wanna get away with murder, do it in FLA … By the time the prosecution has screwed up evidence and protocol … You’ll be found not guilty, unless the judge doesn’t toss the case out beforehand … (Insert Angry Face Here!)
