Defense Raising Money With 'Thank You Card' - Photo Released Showing Blood Running From Nose
The Kissimmee, Florida defense team for accused murderer George Zimmerman has released a new color photo they say is of Zimmerman the night he was involved in the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney said, "This is a photo of George Zimmerman taken by a police officer on the night of February 26, 2012. A black and white photocopy of this image was provided by the State in the first Discovery.
"This high-resolution digital file was finally provided to the defense on October 29, 2012. This image was disclosed in the State's 9th Supplemental Discovery."
Zimmerman will go to trial for the murder of Martin at an undetermined date in Seminole County, Florida.
O'Mara said his office will "be making all public documents related to the case available.. as soon as we are sure it has been properly redacted according to the Court's stipulations on protecting information regarding specific witnesses."
In order to raise money for defense attorney expenses, Zimmerman's Defense Fund has been sending autographed "Thank You" cards to donors. O'Mara said his office originally had reservations against the idea of what may appear to some as selling autographs. but says, "Now the time has come to stop acting like George is the person portrayed by those who have manipulated the facts and the media, and to be true to the innocent person George is."
