Posted on July 4, 2013 Prosecutors on Wednesday continued presenting their case in chief in week two of the 2nd degree murder trial of George Zimmerman and presented more evidence about Zimmerman’s work in a college criminal justice course.

That evidence was in contrast to the statements that Zimmerman said in an interview with Fox News last year saying that he did not know about the law. However, it remains to be seen it this evidence and testimony will benefit the State of Florida as the jury of six women continue to hear the evidence.

Posted on June 28, 2013 On Thursday, after two days of testimony totaling about seven hours the State of Florida’s star witness Rachel “Diamond” Jeantel was excused in the George Zimmerman 2nd degree murder trial.
