George Zimmerman’s lawyers say prosecutors are deliberately dragging their feet, and accused the Duval County State Attorney of delaying – and even hiding – evidence that suggests their client is innocent.
It took months and the judge’s intervention for lawyers to get a vivid color copy of Zimmerman’s bloody injuries. The defense didn’t find out about witnesses who had helpful information until recently, and attorneys learned of a police officer’s full role in the case by word of mouth.
Papers filed in Seminole County Court in Sanford accuse prosecutors of withholding exculpatory information by delaying reports and a key audio tape.
The lawyers are asking Seminole Circuit Judge Debra Nelson for help.
