JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Right now the evidence is mounting against George Zimmerman and Action News isn't taking it all at face value.
You've heard the 911 calls and you've seen the new video of Zimmerman taken into custody hours after the shooting. Some folks have already made up their mind about what happened.
But we're going to the experts to get your questions answered. They're explaining how this evidence could play out in a courtroom. They tell us, not everything we've heard, will be what a jury hears inside a courtroom. Right now, Zimmerman hasn't been charged in Trayvon's death.
Action News went to two different defense lawyers asking the tough questions about the evidence we've seen against neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. So how will it all play out in court?
"All you see is evidence, which is shaping public opinion. But what I care about is what's admissible. Take Zimmerman's previous arrests. That's never going to be given to a jury," said attorney Randy Reep.
Reep also pointed to the reports that Trayvon was suspended from school for having drug residue in his bag. "That's the kind of character evidence of a victim that's largely not admissible," said Reep.
While the new surveillance has people questioning whether Zimmerman was ever injured in the attack, Reep says not so fast. "The quality isn't real high. I can't tell whether he has a broken nose or not," said Reep.
Former FBI agent and attorney Dale Carson says State Attorney Angela Corey also has another problem. "The difficulty is, other people are saying I saw it. I don't know whether to trust that because a lot of information has been passed out. By not arresting him at the time, they let critical evidence disappear. In order to prove the case, you have to resurrect evidence that may not exist," said Carson.
Both lawyers do agree on one thing. "The standard is beyond a reasonable doubt," said Carson. "You have to convince 12 jurors of what it means," said Reep.
Thursday, the State Attorney's office sent us a letter, talking about the evidence that's been released in this case. They are not commenting any further about the investigation and said the evidence shouldn't even be out there. The letter said, "For the sake of all involved, please allow us to do our job within the bounds of Florida law."
Action News has learned a grand jury is set to decide whether charges should be brought against Zimmerman on April 10th.
