Prosecutors attack Zimmerman story several ways
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A judgetossed out a detective’s statement that hefound George Zimmerman credible inhis description of fighting with TrayvonMartin, a decision that benefits prosecu-tors who are trying to discredit the defen-dant’s self-defense claims.Other efforts by prosecutors to attackZimmerman’s story on Tuesday includedthe cross examination of a friend hecalled after shooting Martin and the tes-timony of a doctor who found the defen-dant’s injuries to be insignificant. Theyalso sought to introduce school recordsthat indicate Zimmerman had studied thestate’s self-defense law, in another swipeat his truthfulness.Prosecutors took the unusual step of trying to pick apart the statements of an investigator they’d called as a pros-ecution witness because some of whathe said appeared to help the defense.Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda asked the judge to strike Detective Chris Serino’sstatement that he thought Zimmermanwas credible when he described how hegot into a fight with Martin. Serino wasthe lead investigator on the case for theSanford Police Department.De la Rionda argued the statementwas improper because one witness isn’tallowed to evaluate another witness’scredibility. Defense attorney MarkO’Mara argued that it’s Serino’s job todecide whether Zimmerman was tellingthe truth.Judge Debra Nelson told jurors to dis-regard the statement.“This is an improper comment,” the judge said.Zimmerman has said he fatally shotthe unarmed black 17-year-old in self-defense in February of 2012 becauseMartin was banging his head into a con-crete sidewalk. Zimmerman, 29, couldget life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty.To earn a conviction on the charge,prosecutors must prove there was illwill, spite or a depraved mind by thedefendant.The prosecutor also questioned Serinoabout his opinion that Zimmerman didn’tdisplay those negative emotions towardMartin.De la Rionda played backZimmerman’s call to police to reportthe teen wailing through his gated com-munity. Zimmerman uses an expletive,refers to “punks” and then says, “Thesea———-. They always get away.”The detective conceded thatZimmerman’s choice of words could beinterpreted as being spiteful.The state has argued that Zimmermanprofiled Martin from his truck and calleda police dispatch number before he andthe teenager got into a fight. Zimmermanhas denied the confrontation had any-thing to do with race, as Martin’s fam-ily and their supporters have claimed.Zimmerman’s father is white and hismother is Hispanic.Several moves by prosecutors Tuesdaywere aimed at showing inconsistencies inZimmerman’s statements.Prosecutors asked the judge to allowthem to introduce school records showingZimmerman took a class that addressedFlorida’s self-defense law. They say itwill show he hadknowledge of thelaw, even though heclaimed he didn’t in an interview withtalk show host Sean Hannity. The inter-view was played for jurors.O’Mara objected, saying the recordswere irrelevant. He referred to the pros-ecution’s efforts to introduce them as “awitch hunt.”The judge said she would rule later inthe week.Late in the morning the prosecutionquestioned Mark Osterman, a friend whospoke with Zimmerman after the shoot-ing.Under questioning by de la Rionda,Osterman said that Zimmerman told himMartin had grabbed his gun during theirstruggle, but that Zimmerman was able topull it away.That account is different from whatZimmerman told investigators in mul-tiple interviews. In those interviews, heonly said it appeared Martin was reachingfor his gun prior to the shooting. He nevertold police the teen grabbed it.“I thought he had said he grabbed thegun,” Osterman said. “I believe he saidhe grabbed the gun.”A Sanford Police Department fin-gerprint examiner testified that none of Martin’s prints were found on the gun.Prosecutors also called a medicalexaminer who had reviewed evidence forthem to the witness stand. Dr. Valerie Raotestified that Zimmerman’s injuries wereinsignificant, bolstering the prosecution’sclaims that Zimmerman’s life wasn’t in jeopardy during his fight with Martin.Rao was not the medical examiner whoautopsied Martin.“They were so minor that the indi-vidual who treated and examined Mr.Zimmerman decided stitches weren’trequired,” Rao said.CLEVELAND (AP) — TheseOhio lotteries were drawn Tuesday:Mega Millions36-42-51-52-53, Mega Ball: 40(thirty-six, forty-two, fifty-one,fifty-two, fifty-three; Mega Ball:forty)Megaplier4(four)Pick 3 Evening5-7-2(five, seven, two)Pick 3 Midday6-3-0(six, three, zero)Pick 4 Evening8-3-1-3(eight, three, one, three)Pick 4 Midday2-1-1-4(two, one, one, four)Pick 5 Evening3-6-1-8-0(three, six, one, eight, zero)Pick 5 Midday1-3-1-4-0(one, three, one, four, zero)PowerballEstimated jackpot: $60 millionRolling Cash 505-15-19-29-37(five, fifteen, nineteen, twenty-nine, thirty-seven)Estimated jackpot: $100,000
