George Zimmerman Pretrial Motions Hearing

Mark O'Mara Pretrial Hearing

CFNews 13Seminole County judge Debra Nelson will consider whether to accept a voice expert’s testimony at the last hearing before the start of George Zimmerman’s trial for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.

Today’s court hearing at 9 a.m. in Sanford will tie up several loose ends before the start of the former neighborhood watch leader’s second-degree murder trial next week.

Prosecutors have hired voice recognition experts who have given mixed opinions on whether screams for help on 911 calls were those of Zimmerman or Martin.

Defense attorneys also have asked Circuit Judge Debra Nelson to sanction prosecutors for what they describe as delays in turning over evidence.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense. A delay in Zimmerman’s arrest led to protests nationwide. Martin was black. Zimmerman’s father is white, and his mother is Hispanic.

The trial is expected to last more than a month.

    I can’t take hearing his voice. I can’t imagine how scared he must have been. Not understanding how he just went to the store and is now being stalked by this sociopath.

  2. ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws To Be Scrutinized For Racial Bias By Civil Rights Commission

    Trayvon Martin Case To Be Investigated By U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

    On Friday, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights began an investigation on whether or not the “Stand Your Ground” law around the country has a racial bias. After February 2012 when the laws received national attention after the murder of Trayvon Martin, authorities initially did not arrest suspect George Zimmerman for the crime due to the “stand your ground” law. The law allows defenders to ‘stand their ground’ and defend themselves without first retreating, allowing anyone to use deadly force in response to a threat.

    The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights approved the investigation by a 5-3 vote today in downtown Washington D.C. “This is something the commission has not done in decades — a full-blown field investigation of an issue with potential civil rights ramifications,” Said Michael Yaki, the democratic commissioner responsible for the initial push for an investigation. “We’re going to take our own cut at it, go down, dig through records at the district attorney, police level and other things, and start going through … to see whether or not, as some people suspect, that there is bias in the assertion or the denial of Stand Your Ground, depending on the race of the victim or the race of the person asserting the defense.”

  3. First time heard publicly. Trayvon Martin’s Voice

  4. Alicia Martin- Trayvon Martin’s Stepmother

    • After hearing the child’s death screams it was so disturbing, so piercing until I couldn’t get them out of my mind. When I laid down at night..I heard them. I had to ask God to heal my mind. It was just too much. May Zimmerman rot in prison for the rest of his failed miserable life and from there to hell!

    • Ametia says:

      Lord have MERCY. No mother or step mother should have to endure this kind of pain, listening to the screams of their UNARMED child being shot and murdered in cold blood by a big ass, kickboxing, race profiling, racist, wannabe vigilante.

  7. rikyrah says:


    thank you for these threads. I don’t have the time to give the true attention to this case that it deserves, but I’m very thankful that you are holding this topic down for 3CHICS. You are very appreciated by those that comment and those that just lurk. It has been criminal the way the MSM has been holding Zimmerman’s hand, trying to find anyway to justify his hunting, stalking and murdering this innocent Black child.
