George Zimmerman’s attorney is reportedly asking a judge to allow Trayvon Martin’s drug use to be referenced in court.
The prosecution has requested that the topic be off limits.
But Zimmerman’s attorney alleged that Martin was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the incident.
George Zimmerman’s attorney filed a motion Monday claiming that Martin likely was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his death in February 2012. Attorney Don West says that could be relevant to a jury evaluating Martin’s actions the night he was shot.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting Martin during a confrontation at the gated community in Sanford where he lived. His trial is scheduled to start next month.
Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
Is Trayvon Martin’s alleged drug use fair game?
Does it matter?
