Teenage Witness In Trayvon Martin Case Admits She ‘Misrepresented’ Herself, Prosecution Says
MyFoxOrlando.com reports defense attorney Mark O’Mara, who is representing the alleged shooter George Zimmerman, is seeking medical records for Martin’s girlfriend after the prosecution revealed the girl had "misrepresented" herself in interviews about the case.
The girlfriend, known as Witness 8 in court proceedings, is considered to be a key witness in the case because she alleges she was on the phone with Martin before he was killed.
In a recorded interview with the attorney for Martin’s parents last March, the girl claimed Martin said during that conversation that someone was following him. She said she heard a brief exchange between him and someone before the phone was cut off. Martin was shot shortly afterwards.
The girl had claimed she was unable to attend Martin’s funeral because she had been hospitalized, but it was revealed in court Tuesday she had lied about the visit.
