George Zimmerman Seeking ‘Stand Your Ground’ Hearing
Self-proclaimed neighborhood watch
dog man George Zimmerman is still trying to avoid the consequences of his actions for murdering 17-year-old unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
In his latest ploy, Zimmerman is seeking a hearing on the basis of Florida’s controversial ‘Stand Your Ground’ law in order to have all charges against him dismissed and go free.
George Zimmerman will seek to have second-degree murder charges dismissed under Florida’s “stand your ground” law in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, his attorney said Thursday.
The hearing, which likely won’t take place for several months, will amount to a mini-trial involving much of the evidence collected by prosecutors as well as expert testimony from both sides. Although the posting did not say so, legal experts say it’s likely that Zimmerman himself would testify since he is the sole survivor of the Feb. 26 confrontation.
Under the law, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester can dismiss the charges if Zimmerman conclusively shows he fatally shot Martin because he “reasonably believed” he might be killed or suffer “great bodily harm” at the hands of the unarmed teenager. The law also says a person has no duty to retreat in the face of such a threat.
Smh….this dude is the ultimate scumbag.
