Default Zimmerman's defense attorney wants to bring up Martin's past during trial

Quote:
ORLANDO, Fla. -
State prosecutors in the case against George Zimmerman are pushing to keep Zimmerman's attorneys from bringing testimony about Trayvon Martin's past during the trial.

The state said in motions filed on Friday they want to prevent Zimmerman's attorneys from bringing up Martin's personal life, including his school records, previous suspension from school, fights, text messages sent prior to his death unless related to case and his social media use.

The motion also says the state wants to prevent the defense from using Martin's toxicology report, which showed the level of marijuana in Martin's blood the night he was shot and killed.

The state's filings suggest they fear the defense may try to attack Martin's character, instead of focusing on whether Zimmerman murdered Martin. Assistant prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda argued that Martin's past is irrelevant and would clearly be designed only to prejudice the jury.

The state filing the motion doesn't mean the defense was trying to use it at the trial and often similar motions are filed as a precaution to give the judge an opportunity to tell both sides what they should not reference or introduce unless later ruled relevant and admissible.

Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara also filed motions discussing what they will discuss at the next hearing, which is set for May 28. Among the motions were a motion to allow additional witnesses and to allow expert testimony by video at the hearing.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder after shooting and killing Martin in Sanford in February 2012.

Now what the FUCK does him having marijuana in his system the night he was shot have ANYTHING to do with the case? So if I'm high walking down the street (as i often do) and i get shot and killed the murderer is going to get off scotch free?

From what I've seen online this topic never ends well. I don't think it should matter either but obviously the defense is trying to build up the idea that he was a drug-user to justify Zimmerman going after him in the first place which lead to the fight. If this is allowed then id expect them to try and bring up every past transgression Martin had to try and paint him as a criminal and justify Zimmermann decision to.follow and confront him.

I think Zimmerman should be found guilty but you can't really blame the defense for trying to build a case to free their client.

This will end the same way the Casey Anthony trial did, don't worry.

Somebody call - we need justice.

You do understand that marijuana is an illegal drug right? You do understand that smoking pot makes you a criminal right? You do understand that by buying pot, you contribute to the financial well being of criminal gangs right? You do understand that many teenagers dropped out of school because of marijuana right?

In his blood system? Weed stays in your blood system for like 30 days.

Only stays in the blood for a short period of time. If bud was in his blood then he was blazin pretty recently to the shooting.

Not that being high should matter at all, though.

I live right around the Sanford area where this occurred, so this is a pretty big deal around here.

I just feel safer, you know - knowing that I can legally kill a person as long as their skin complexion is a few shades darker then mine.

That was completely sarcastic, don't feel like getting people worked up who don't catch it.

The effects last a short period of time but it stays in your blood for more than a couple of weeks and can stay for up to a month.
