Zimmerman evidence may not be fully made public

May 11, 2012, 3:02 PM

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) – The attorney for Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman says public release of all evidence in the case should be delayed so names of witnesses can be removed.

Attorney Mark O’Mara said on his website Friday he expects to receive that evidence on Monday. Under Florida law, this so-called discovery would normally be made public at the same time.

O’Mara says he may file a motion asking for a delay in public release so that witness names can be blacked out. O’Mara says if witnesses are hounded by the media it might jeopardize Zimmerman’s chances of getting a fair trial.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, has pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge in the Feb. 26 shooting of the 17-year-old Martin. Zimmerman claims he shot the teenager in self-defense.
