Skip to comments.Back To Court – Mark O’Mara Returns to Judge Nelson Today 4pm Hearing
Posted on 02/14/2013 6:45:13 AM PST by Uncle Chip
Today George Zimmermans legal team will head back to court to argue motions before Judge Nelson. The specifics of this motion are to request a delay in the Immunity Hearing scheduled for April 26th.
Recently OMara shared, through the GZ Defense website, numerous challenges from the prosecution discovery releases including blank tapes/CDs from CCTV footage used by the State of Florida in their investigation.
Additionally, Martin family attorney, Benjamin Crump, is refusing to be deposed as a witness despite his prior assertions that he and his team had discovered specific evidence against George Zimmerman. There are multiple issues with the claims made by Ben Crump, and subsequently advocated by the State of Florida, regarding witness #8.
To give you yet another example of the media bias and misinformation around this case take a look at this recent article from Rene Stutzman of the Orlando Sentinel. Just in this one paragraph alone THREE glaring media contortions:
The 18-year-old woman at the center of dispute was interviewed by Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda April 2 in Jacksonville and gave him the same general account as she told Crump. (link)
.The 18-year-old woman ..? Rene Stutzman disengenuously never reconciles how she now comes to the position of Witness #8 being eighteen when all of her prior articles listed witness #8 as sixteen and a minor.
. interviewed by Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda April 2 in Jacksonville ? Um, not even close. The April 2nd interview with witness #8 was at the home of Sybrina Fulton in North-Miami.
and gave him the same general account as she told Crump
.? How does Rene Stutzman reconcile this statement? Does she have some insider information that even the defense is not aware of?

It’s hard to keep up with the lies of the prosecution.
Elsewhere on this guy’s site, he makes a pretty solid case that “DeeDee” (Witness #8) is at best a composite of a couple of different people, but more likely simply made up, hence the varying claims of age, for example, as necessary at the time for whatever specific legal reason was necessary.
The multiple levels of dubious problems of Crump’s recording of her account are there, he says, so that the voice recording is so poor that they have more leeway in casting “DeeDee” for in-person depositions and the trial.
This is why Crump is so desperately working not to be deposed himself. He has two levels of lies to keep straight — “DeeDee”’s and his own.
Motions now before the Court:
The following MOTION REGARDING DEPOSITION OF BENJAMIN CRUMP, ESQUIRE has been filed with the Court:
The following MOTION TO SET STATUS CONFERENCE AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE has been filed with the Court:
The defense has filed the following MOTION FOR SUBPOENAS DUCES TECUM TO STATE WITNESSES, TRACY MARTIN, SYBRINA FULTON, JAHVARIUS FULTON, AND STEPHEN MARTIN with the Court:
MOTION FOR SUBPOENA DUCES TECUM TO STATE WITNESS, CIVILIAN WITNESS 8 [DeeDee who prosecution still won’t give name, address, phone #]
DEMAND FOR SPECIFIC DISCOVERY [regarding 3 Surveillance videos that the state turned over to defense that were all blank]
“DeeDee” as composite, source for Crump lies http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/04/21/update-10-part-2-the-trayvon-martin-shooting-deedee-reveals-the-false-truths/
What a travesty!
Orlando Slantinel is owned by Chicago Tribune...so its pro black slant is no surprise
Hope that Zimmerman sues the hell out of Sentinel
Fact is.....Witness 8 does not exist. If she really did ...her testimony would have been handed over to the defense a long time ago....and Ben Crump would not have to lawyer up
Is Crump on the witness list for the State?
I’m not sure. I don’t think he was until in open court Nelson made him a witness — but for whom I’m not sure.
State of Florida V George Zimmernan
