Well a couple of new major developments of the George Zemin and murder case which is scheduled to begin to go to trial in just three weeks.
Defense attorneys releasing a series of photos from the night -- -- -- was killed.
Along with some other photos and this comes just days after the defense team asked a judge to allow information on -- -- Martin's drug use to be admitted at trial.
Joining me now from Florida mark on -- Clemens attorney mark great to see you thanks for coming on.
President credit -- -- what do you think is the most significant piece of evidence that you have on earth than are now getting ready to submit.
Well tonight -- -- -- as you know we try not to focus on particular pieces of evidence but what we've done what we've had to do pursuant to our.
Reciprocal discovery demands to forward information that we have to the state so that we -- use of the trial so all of the information.
That we really sort of past couple weeks particularly today was information from -- on Martin's cell phone.
Evidence -- -- more three dimensional picture of through trade on Martin was.
I know you believe and will argue that the way -- on Martin has been portrayed in the press is not accurate.
And you -- you intend to use these pictures and we're gonna go through a couple of them in text messages to prove that a couple that come to mind from what what you've -- Pictures of it appears that a gun.
From his self on a picture of a gun and the hand holding a gun.
Do you believe the hand holding the gun -- straight on -- in this picture.
A prime minister all of that this information is only gonna become relevant corner -- the state who knows their case that they focused on the five minutes.
There was intersection George -- -- -- on Martin than a lot of information about -- moments pass towards amendments passed may not be relevant but.
If the state attempts to bring in evidence of trade on in a certain way or Jordan a certain way that this information may become very relevant having said that.
You know I I have to be hesitant to suggest -- opinion of what the evidence is that picture that you're referencing -- the picture taken.
From his cell phone.
By whatever -- person with sorting out cellphone looking out.
A gun in hand and I don't want to say more than -- -- -- up really for jury to decide why is that relevant you know even arguably.
Arguing is relevant because if the issue -- someone's propensity for violence.
Becomes relevant and I think the jury can consider the fact that he had.
Several pictures of a -- and of course his text messages -- also talked about.
His attempts to purchase a -- but that could be relevance.
It's concerning a propensity for violence.
I know that you also have pictures of a marijuana plant that come from his itself funny -- additional pictures of mr.
Zimmerman injuries -- question I want to ask you about all that and I also want to ask you but these text messages twenty pages of text messages.
From -- -- cellphone if you would bear with me will pick that up after the break.
-- -- And we continue now Mark -- -- -- attorney.
Mark it looks like you have a -- -- trade on cell phone that shows -- marijuana plant the text messages from the phone.
Talk about we need and can we smoke one last time in a fair amount of references to pot how is this relevant.
But we -- that there -- -- intrude on Martin's system ignited the offense and we know that one of the State's experts have said that.
Six the new system while made up enough to get through -- for -- you why.
Could definitely have impact and make -- impaired in this other state stories that are out there that say that that left.
Aggression particularly young now so I think it's relevant to show that he was aren't that night that -- -- -- -- chronic user of it.
The among the other evidence are pictures new pictures of George Zimmerman injuries some of which we've seen you know versions up before.
His head in and and is bleeding in his nose and cell line.
Obviously you're gonna show that this man was under attack on the night in question.
But I think it looks like you're also can use some of these text messages from trail -- phone -- to show that he he was a potentially violent guy.
Who had some past violence.
Episodes what what did the -- show in your view.
-- I was seventeen years so it seems that from the text messages that it involved themselves in some street fighting.
There is some text messages and you can read in his -- I can -- talk about.
Losing round one round and going back and winning two other rounds are going back to get somebody because he hadn't gotten enough blood.
You know if we're talking about who -- on Martin was that night if that becomes relevant record out of state presents it -- the idea that this is a person's familiar with fighting.
A familiar way of getting on top of somebody and other tax that was I think that's very relevant for a jury to look back and say.
What did happen in that one minute or so that we don't have audio evidence for get about twenty seconds to the break how do you like your chances right now.
He's innocent he had acted in self defense from day one we've always consider that this evidence we've -- was out there.
This do we have a before a jury and it's -- be -- credit.
Mark thanks for coming on.
