Review: you told us all that there were no bench trials for murder cases.
few would risk their fate in the hands of a bench trial for a serious case, it would be irresponsible for a judge to allow the same as it is certainly open to quick appeal process, unless little information is available to convict and a process is use to truncate an otherwise frivolous case

Unfortunately a lot of cases go to trial that clearly shouldn't. That's the system we have and they cost taxpayers a lot if money and are acquitted in the end. I guess it all works it self out in the end when you figure how many tax dollars were saved when Martin checked out. I'm sure he would have cost plenty.
This isn't one of them son.

Again, you have very slewed 'facts'

lol! And yet, you can't prove it other than making your claim son.

That much is clear.

lol! Thank you for you opinion son.

Obviously O'Mara doesn't agree with you since he had the first judge removed.

Are you sure you're on the right case son? Or even the right country for the kind of "law" you're espousing?
Yeah

George Zimmerman attorneys: State voice experts may be using phony science

George Zimmerman 911 call reporting Trayvon Martin

By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
10:50 a.m. EDT, May 6, 2013

Attorneys for murder suspect George Zimmerman are challenging the scientific validity of state voice recognition experts.

In a new motion, defense attorney Mark O'Mara wrote that those unnamed experts may be using phony science, so the judge should hold a hearing, listen to evidence about how they did their work then decide whether to allow them to testify at Zimmerman's trial.

The motion, filed Friday but made public today, is almost certainly related to a much-played 911 recording made Feb. 26, 2012, the night Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17 year old in Sanford.

A neighbor had called police to report a fight outside. During her call, a voice in the background can be heard crying for help then 40 seconds later, there's a loud bang the gunshot - and the crying stops.

That piece of evidence will be one of the most important at Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial, slated to begin in Sanford June 10.

Zimmerman told police he was the one screaming for help, that Trayvon had punched him, breaking his nose and knocking him to the ground, then climbed on top and began hammering his head on a sidewalk.
Trayvon's parents say the screams were from their son, although, his father initially told Sanford police they were not.

Family attorney Benjamin Crump told reporters that Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, changed his opinion after listening to a cleaned up version of the recording, but prosecutors last week told Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson that they knew of no cleaned up version.

Crump last week said that when Tracy Martin listened to the recording a second time, at Sanford's City Hall, he was listening on a computer and could hear the audio more clearly.

FBI audio experts tried to analyze the recording but gave up, saying the quality of the recording was too poor.

O'Mara's motion does not identify which experts he's challenging, but two audio experts analyzed the voice on the tape last year for the Orlando Sentinel, and both concluded it was not Zimmerman. Prosecutors put them both, Tom Owen, chairman emeritus of the American Board of Recorded Evidence, and Ed Primeau, an audio engineer from Rochester Hills, Mich., on their witness list.

Owen is a courtroom veteran, but in his analysis of the voice on that 911 recording used a new software program he had developed. He removed all other sound from the recording, except for the cries for help, and using biometrics, compared it to a recording of Zimmerman's voice and concluded it was not him. Owen came to no conclusion about who it was.

Primeau used a different technique, based on audio enhancement and human analysis, and concluded the voice belonged to Trayvon because it was "a young man screaming"
