Statement From Trayvon Martin’s Family and Their Attorneys

April 11, 2013

Statement from Trayvon Martin’s Family and their Attorneys

One year ago today, the State of Florida decided that there was evidence to charge George Zimmerman for second-degree murder for profiling, pursuing, and killing our unarmed teenage son. The facts of this case are simple and straightforward. We are confident that a jury following the overwhelming evidence against George Zimmerman will hold him accountable for killing our son, Trayvon Martin.

For the Zimmerman family to allege that the justice system doesn’t work, simply because they are unhappy their son was arrested in the first place, is disingenuous and disrespectful to the very system that is currently affording him every available opportunity to defend himself. The arrest of an admitted killer is not a violation of due process, it is due process. Most will agree that no one has been given greater consideration by the justice system for killing an unarmed child, than George Zimmerman.

We continue to pray that our son’s death will serve as a catalyst in preventing other senseless acts of gun violence.

DEFENSE’S MOTION FOR SANCTIONS AGAINST STATE OF FLORIDA

Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963) established the Brady disclosures that prosecutors must make to defense counsel in a criminal prosecution. Disclosures consists of potentially exculpatory or impeaching information and evidence that is material to the guilt or innocence of the defendant.

Did the State fail to disclose material evidence or exculpatory evidence, or is this just another attempt at diverting attention away from the defendant out of desperation?
