ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) --  An attorney who testified during a hearing in the George Zimmerman case that he'd become aware of evidence the prosecutor didn't properly turn over to defense lawyers says that he's come forward out of ethical obligation and harbors no ill will toward his former employer.

Former assistant state attorney Wesley White said Wednesday that Fourth Judicial Circuit information technology director Ben Kruidbos was placed on administrative leave shortly after White testified during a hearing in George Zimmerman's murder case on Tuesday.

White testified that Kruidbos retrieved three photographs and deleted text messages from Martin's cellphone that were not disclosed to Zimmerman's attorneys by the prosecutor.

White says Kruidbos was interviewed by state attorney investigators before being placed on leave.

A hearing on the issue is scheduled for next week.

Karen - why don't you head to Chicago if you're not happy here? Pittsburgh? Detroit? East Los Angeles? Plenty of other places out there. Kudos to the attorney that did the right thing. Of course, the IRS & Homeland Security will need to see him regarding a "matter of national security". Hope he's a Saudi or he's toast....
