Evidence Limited in George Zimmerman Trial


We now know what evidence will not be presented during George Zimmerman’s murder trial next month.

Defense attorneys say some of the denied evidence could be crucial to their client’s case. The jury will not see 17-year-old Trayvon Martin’s school records, social media postings or a picture of Martin wearing fake gold teeth. Texts and photos of a marijuana plant and a gun are off limits as well.

"The drugs, and the history of his chronicity, his chronic use of drugs and his familiarity with fighting and to a certain extent his familiarity with guns is completely relevant to the theory of defense. So how can you keep us from arguing our theory of defense?” said Zimmerman’s Defense Attorney Mark O’Mara.

Toxicology reports showing the presence of a chemical found in marijuana in Martin’s system the night of the shooting may be introduced, but not during opening statements.
