One year ago today, Mr. O’Mara held a presser outside his office to announce he was going to petition the higher court to remove Judge Lester from the case.
I was beginning to doubt Mr. O’Mara in July 2012 that he may put his need to deal with this judge in the future ahead of the advocacy of his client, George Zimmerman.
I was elated to hear this news a year ago. Little did we know that exacly 11 months later, we would be listening to the verdict in the George Zimmerman case. NOT GUILTY.
Thank you to Rumpole for recording the highlights from the August 13, 2012 presser. Also discussed, the intention to motion for a self-defense immunity hearing and the news that the defense was ready to start taking depositions.
In January/February 2013, we would listen to Judge Nelson tell the defense that they wasted time in not doing depositions since the arrest in April 2012.
