  • SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A judge has ruled that attorneys for a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer can inspect the school records and social media postings of the unarmed teenager he is accused of murdering.

    Judge Debra S. Nelson said Friday that defendant George Zimmerman's attorneys need to know whether Trayvon Martin's school records and social media postings give any evidence that he had violent tendencies.

    The 29-year-old Zimmerman fatally shot the 17-year-old Martin in February. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, saying he shot Martin in self-defense.

    Nelson said she is reviewing Zimmerman's medical records to see if they should be turned over to prosecutors. Nelson set another hearing for Oct. 26.

    The judge has scheduled Zimmerman's trial for next June. A hearing on Zimmerman's self-defense claim has not been scheduled.

    1. Attorney for Martin need to see all of Zimmerman history. I agree, what does Martin record have to do with him being murder.

    2. If anyone went out to buy their younger sibling a candy bar and a soda I highly doubt that there was any “violent tendencies”. This is just nit-picking for anything they can find to make Trayvon look bad. When its all said and done he was a 17 year old boy who was doing a good thing and ran into a bad man named George Zimmerman!
