Attorney’s In George Zimmerman Trial Clear Issues Before Opening Statements

George Zimmerman Trial Continues In Florida

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors in opening statements may say that George Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin but they may not say the Miami teen was racially profiled by the neighborhood watch volunteer.

Judge Debra Nelson made that ruling Friday ahead of Monday’s expected opening statements in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming he fatally shot Martin last year in self-defense.

Defense attorneys had objected to prosecutors saying Martin was racially profiled. Martin was black and Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic.
