ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Attorneys for the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged with shooting Trayvon Martin to death on Wednesday asked for more time to prepare his case, saying prosecutors had been slow to turn over evidence.

At the same time, Zimmerman's lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, renewed his request for donations to George Zimmerman's legal defense, which he said could cost up to $1 million. "The state has virtually unlimited resources to prosecute George," O'Mara said on Zimmerman's defense fund website.

Zimmerman’s lead attorney, Mark O’Mara, renewed his request for donations to George Zimmerman’s legal defense,

What a creepy lawyer. He is begging for money so that HIS pockets are full of money when this is over. Why doesn’t Zimmerman pick a lawyer he can afford? I guess welfare in the law is the next big thing.

I don't think he's creepy at all. And pick a welfare lawyer?? The state would love that.

This is on a par with the Nifong case. Those boys were totally innocent...but the state went on and on....even to the point of hiding conclusive evidence of innocence.

I’ve seen three or four honest apologies posted, but the flood of “Zimmerman is GUILTY!” posts here last year convinced me that FR had been heavily infiltrated by racist leftist trolls who couldn’t help but post their inflammatory hatred here in response.

The same ones a few months later who said, “I’m staying home rather than vote for a mormon.”

But whatever it takes to get the job done, right, Hussein Heads?

Absolutely!

The state will spend a lot more than that to see a guilty verdict. I plan to send some money to help this man get a fair trail in the USA. He shouldn’t have been charged in the first place. It was all political.

The kid was hammering his head into the concrete. He was lucky to have had a gun or he would be the one dead.

I wonder why they want credit card purchases at the 7/11 for the two hour period in which Soetoro’s son if he had one was there. Could it be the saintly trayvon may have been using a CC that not be his?

Hmm, I also remember a bunch of the same leftist trolls screaming here that Z and his wife were “SKIMMING” defense fund contributions and were glad when she was arrested.

Even though another posted proved that their website specifically stated they were collecting for personal expenses as well.

I’ll bet O’Mara and West have racked up over half a million dollars in legal fees thus far [much of which it due to the State’s stone-walling and playing hide and seek with the evidence], but they have been paid little to nothing because there is no money there.

I would guess they have Tray on camera during that time period...No way would they get the info otherwise.

defenses are not free. The state typically COUNTS on defendants being too poor to do depositions, hire experts, jury experts, court transcripts, etc.

it is either interested people donate or taxpayers foot the bill for a 1/2 posterior public defender who is overworked and nominally paid.

Yeh — they do a good job with it:

“I can’t believe that Judge Nelson is so profoundly stupid and dishonest that she will not understand that by covertly sending the cell phone to an undisclosed, California firm for undisclosed procedures, BDLR has irrevocably broken the chain of custody and created a prima facia case of evidence tampering by the prosecution.” [Knuckledraggingwino]

Watching Judge Nelson dance around the facts presented in this motion will be fun. O’Mara is shoving the evidence of prosecutorial misconduct right in front of her face and she is cowardly playing stupid and the prosecution knows it and is taking advantage of it.

From the Treehouse;
“Almost everyone agreed the “phone records” were *the way* to bring sunlight to the guise.

Now what?

Now what?

Motion to dismiss.

Not only is there prima facie evidence of evidence tampering, but also, without Martin’s phone data, it is impossible to prove that Dee Dee’s conversation with Martin actually took place – meaning that the State truly has no evidence whatsoever.”

Motion to dismiss.

I hope not yet. The prosecution is now on trial. They have broken the chain of custody to cover their asses on the phone and there is no record of calls being made on the night of the incident -- WTH???

Crump is lawyering up and refuses to provide the legal names, addresses and vital info on the Martin family witnesses to the defense so they can send out deposition notices. WTH???

And Judge Nelson sits there like a dried up potted plant while this goes on.

I don't know what you do for a living, but if you make more than minimum wage, then you are a greedy SOB yourself. You just want your pockets full of money when your job is done.

Some of the crap I read on this forum just floors me.

I thought this was a conservative forum. But then there is this liberal envy attitude from guys like you that really makes me wonder if this country has any hope at all. If you are the typical conservative, then there is no hope.

spoiliation of evidence is grounds for dismissal.

prosecutor misconduct is grounds for dismissal.

remember this is THE RULE for the way prosecutors act.

Video of interview between Angela Corey and Trayvonista Congresswoman about the Alexander Case that preceded the Zimmerman case:

Did AC charge Zimmerman to calm the AA community for political gain after the backlash from the Alexander case???

She’s MIA! And just what did the California company do to the phone? That is, besides breaking the custody chain?

I read just about every thread on the Zimmerman/Martin case that comes along. Have done so since the very beginning.

I don't remember any poster on FR saying Zimmerman was guilty, other than as sarcasm.

There were only two that I can recall — and we don’t hear from them at all anymore since things have gone south for the prosecution’s case.

“I don’t remember any poster on FR saying Zimmerman was guilty, other than as sarcasm.”

Sarcasm came a couple of weeks later.

I followed it closely since the beginning and there were a lot here in the first week or so who posted it — all in caps, and were very angry. Some were removed for exposing themselves as leftist trolls.

There were a very few apologies when Big Media couldn’t ignore all the facts.

I don’t care whether or not you believe me, but it’s true.

Dragging the proceedings and stonewalling the evidence in order to impoverish the Defendant is an approved practice.

it is SOP for prosecutors, the various mandatory bars do NOTHING to change it.
