Welcome to liveblogging day 9 Zimmerman trial (morning session)

July 5, 2013

Friday, July 5, 2013

Good morning:

Court will resume this morning at 8:30 am EDT.

The prosecution probably will rest is case today.

I am expecting the Assistant Medical Examiner, Dr. Bao, who did the autopsy. Expect graphic and gruesome photos. If you aren’t into that, you may want to cover your screen and listen.

Also expecting the State to call a wind-up witness, possibly FDLE Detective Gilbreath to connect all the dots with charts, diagrams and timelines.

Sybrina Fulton may also testify to identify Trayvon’s voice. If she does, expect Don West to do his best to impeach her credibility by accusing her of being a bad parent and bringing up the lawsuit against the HOA.

Here’s the link to the livestream coverage.

See you in court.

Good morning:

Court will resume this morning at 9 am EDT with Mark O’Mara’s cross examination of Chris Serino, the man who was in charge of the Sanford Police Department’s investigation of the Trayvon Martin homicide.

Court recessed for the day yesterday after Serino admitted that he believed George Zimmerman was telling the truth.

Sixth day of trial ends in Zimmerman case

July 1, 2013

Monday, July 1, 2013

The sixth day of trial began on a high note for the prosecution with Dr. Hirotaka Nakasone from the FBI testifying that the best chance to identify the source of the scream is by a person familiar with the person’s scream under similar circumstances or extremely stressful circumstances.

Matters proceeded downhill from there with Sanford Police Department Investigator Chris Serino admitting during cross examination by Mark O’Mara that he believed the defendant was telling the truth when he claimed to have killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

Generally speaking a police officer’s opinion regarding whether a suspect is telling the truth, is not admissible and I thought Judge Nelson had granted the State’s motion in limine to prevent what happened today.

This trial is a long way from over, but the State’s case is in trouble if Bernie de la Rionda does not have an effective counter move to what Chris Serino said.

I believe the answer will come from the forensics, which Serino likely did not know at the time he reached that opinion.

Trial resumes tomorrow at 9 am EDT with the continuing cross examination of Chris Serino by Mark O’Mara.

Watch the livestream and join us for the liveblog.

This is getting very interesting.
