<quoted text> MAY 25th 2013. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE CASE AND EVIDENCE when they release it. JUST THE FACTS, MA'AM." (DRAGNET) Data released Thursday by the defense from slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martins cellphone includes texts with a friend about fighting, smoking pot and being forced to move out of his mothers house because of trouble at school, as well as photos of a gun and what looks to be a potted marijuana plant.
A hearing next week will decide if the information can be used at the trial for George Zimmerman, who is charged with fatally shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last year during a confrontation at a gated community in Sanford. Prosecutors want the negative evidence omitted, but Zimmermans defense attorney said if they try to portray his client as the antagonist and Martin as the victim, he wants to show the jury that Martin has talked about fighting before.
If they had suggested that Trayvon is nonviolent and that George is the aggressor, I think that makes evidence of the fighting he has been involved with in the past relevant, said Mark OMara.(NOT SAYING ZIMMERMAN IS WITHOUT GUILT.)
