George Zimmerman attorneys for apologized Sunday for mischaracterizing evidence they said boosted their theory that Trayvon Martin was the aggressor in his fatal meeting with their client last year.
Lawyer Mark O’Mara said during a hearing last Tuesday that the defense had showed video footage of three fights, including one in which he said two of Martin’s friends “were beating up a homeless guy.”
But defense team corrected that statement on Sunday, saying O’Mara had unintentionally “misstated the nature” of the footage. The footage actually showed “two homeless guys fighting each other over a bike.”
Zimmerman faces a second-degree murder.
