George Zimmerman's Lawyer Says Molest Claim 'Irrelevant' to Murder Case
ABC ^ | 7/17/12

Posted on 07/17/2012 5:57:48 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

A lawyer for accused murderer George Zimmerman said today that a woman who claims he molested her for years as a child was Zimmerman's cousin and said his legal team would "vigorously defend" him against the allegations.

Lawyer Mark O'Mara also appeared to question why the prosecution released the woman's accusation. In a statement released today, O'Mara said that he had sought to block the release last month arguing, "The content of this statement is not relevant to the issues of this case, and it would not be admissible in the state's case in chief."

The MSM will have GZ up on a cross before this is over.

A cross? More like a scaffold, methinks. He’d be strung up already if the brainwashed hordes had their way.

The libtards and gun grabbers just CANNOT let this high-profile case of “vigilante justice” stand.

Not even if they have to turn GZ into a “White Hispanic KKK child molester.”

Zimmerman has more slave blood in him than Barack Obama, yet the MSM still wants to lynch him.

Check his DNA we can solve every cold case out there. . . . .
He can join Sandusky in prison. I am sure he has molested others. . . . . . . /s

We have yet to plumb the depths of the Left's depravity.

It is a truly fearsome sight. When will the law just step aside and allow the mob to lynch GZ?

His lawyer is an idiot. He should be filing charges against the judge by now.

This is another reason to get a new Judge and another reason the Prosecutor is a pig.

This will work against them. Too many people will say, “Wait a minute. I did something like that when I was a kid.

I did something when I was about 12 that I’m not proud of. I’ve moved on.

The press and the prosecution is LITERALLY looking like “pre-teen children”. They insult our intelligence with their assumption this will, in any way, play in their favor.

His lawyer should be in jail. He knew about at least $37,000 of the money Zimmerman had in the Paypal account well before the initial bond hearing, yet he didn’t say anything to the judge and he allowed Shellie Zimmerman to perjure herself or at least to appear to perjure herself. O’Mara does not have Zimmerman’s best interest in mind. Zimmerman should replace him with a competent attorney who will fight for him, like Hal Uhlrig, who was his first attorney in this case.

They cannot win this case, and they know it. That's why they are poisoning the jury pool.

It's only purpose is to give Ubama a white-Hispanic bogey man to drive Eric Holder's people to the polls on November 6th.

Angela Corey will drop the case like a hot potato on November 7th.

What the heck?

1. She called police, to tell them this, a month after the shooting....although the molesting allegedly started 20 years ago, and ended 10 years ago?

2. The alleged molesting started when Zimmerman was 8 years old?

3. Even if these allegations were true, so what...doesn’t affect what happened with Martin.

I don’t think the Zimmerman’s had access to that PayPal account.

She doesn’t tell her parents.
She doesn’t tell other siblings so they can tell her parents.
She doesn’t report it to any of her friends so they can get help.
She doesn’t report it to her teacher.
She doesn’t report it to her pastor.
She doesn’t report the kid to the police.

Now she brings the issue up decade(s) later.

Was she a willing participant? Frankly, if she didn’t complain before this, it wreaks of that.

Never the less, despite all this, Zimmerman is now tainted as a child molester in public before a jury is selected.

This has become so absurd, that next I’m expecting them to tell us he was once caught masturbating. Oh yes, and once when he was five he forgot to lock the bathroom door, and his sister walked in on him while he was drying off.

Aw geez, didn’t someone see him kick the family poodle at least once? Come on judge. Come on prosecuting attorney. Come on press. Get it out there!

This just in. Zimmerman’s shoelaces weren’t tied one afternoon after recess in the third grade.

Oh yes, and Zimmerman fits the profile of someone who would top off their gas tank too.

After all, he was a gun owner. You know what gun owners are known for...

This has now sunk down to the level of a grace D spaghetti western.

No, it was George’s Paypal account. He had about $135,000 in it, I think, at the time this was going on. The reason George’s wife, Shellie, has been charged with perjury is that she told the judge that they had no assets that they could liquidate and no other means to pay for George’s defense, but they have her and George recorded talking about the money in the Paypal account (talking in code). But clearly, the Zimmerman’s did have access to this money. The point is that George’s lawyer KNEW the account existed, and he KNEW that there was at least $37,000 in the account prior to the first bond hearing, because George told him that he had tried to transfer $37,000 out but was prevented from doing so since it was more than $10,000. Any lawyer would have asked “well, how much is in the account in total?” - especially before a bond hearing when his client’s credibility and his client’s financial means are central issues.

Try reading the transcript of Zimmerman’s wife’s testimony.

The court knew about the Paypal account. His wife did not know the exact amount but stated that the court could find out by calling Zimmerman’s brother who ran the account.

If it were important, all the court had to do was make a phone call.

The judge seems determined to see to it that there won't be any unbiased jurors. Some of the jurors will be black so there is no way Zimmerman can be acquitted--at best he can get a hung jury. Then the state can try to get him to plea bargain instead of facing a second trial.

Not that they care, but this must be doing more damage to people's confidence in our judicial system than the Nifong case and the O. J. murder trial combined. There should be a petition to have the judge disbarred.

On July 19th, 1990, George Zimmerman didn’t brush his teeth after dinner, and he always stepped on sidewalk cracks, he is obviously dangerous!

There must really be no case because the prosecution and media are getting desperate.

Apparently she didn’t tell SPD about this until after she talked to Crump.

Ummm, it started when she was SIX and Zimmerman was SEVEN. They were probably both in first grade...
