Weekly Crime Poll: Prosecutorial Misconduct?

By December 4, 2012

Follow me on:

Attorneys for George Zimmerman have released a color photo of their client that was taken on the night that Zimmerman shot the Florida teen, Trayvon Martin after a confrontation.

Zimmerman's attorneys say they are frustrated with prosecutors for originally releasing only a substitute photocopy of the photo that was in black and white.

Florida discovery rules require that original photos be turned over. The high-resolution digital photo was not released until Oct. 29, 2012, long after Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder. See the full story.

Poll: Is this a case of prosecutorial misconduct?

A lot of people will be relieved whenever this “case” is closed.
Whatever the outcome, many will be disappointed.
