Today, June 25th, is Day 12 of the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman trial, which will include witness testimony from the prosecution.
The trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Eastern this morning. We’ll bring you updates as they become available. Also, be sure to check the end of this article, our trial updates page, the Axiom Amnesia Facebook page and Twitter feed for live blogs and discussions on the trial. Here’s what to expect:
The day will start with arguments from the prosecution on their desire to admit the almost 50 calls Zimmerman made to police to report “suspicious” people prior to the night he killed Trayvon. The prosecution wants these calls in evidence in because it will jurors insight into the mindset of Zimmerman.
A prosecuting attorney greeted the jury in the George Zimmerman trial Monday with a quote full of expletives, while his adversary decided it was appropriate to tell jurors a knock-knock joke.[...]
In the first day of testimony, jurors heard witnesses recount Martin’s trip to the convenience store, Zimmerman’s call complaining about a suspicious person walking through his neighborhood before Martin’s killing, and a call from the previous August, in which Zimmerman reported an alleged burglary to police.
Proceedings ended for the day when defense attorney Mark O’Mara objected to the earlier call, which prosecutors argued was necessary to explain Zimmerman’s remark about burglars who “get away.”
The Martin family sat watching the proceedings behind State Attorney Angela Corey. Before witness testimony began, Judge Debra Nelson denied a defense request that Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, leave the courtroom.
Tracy Martin is a potential witness, and potential witnesses can be forced to sit outside of the courtroom to keep their testimony from being tainted by other witnesses. But the next-of-kin of victims are allowed to remain in court even if they’re expected to testify.
