George Zimmerman’s Lawyer Quit
(Subtitle: So What Was That Shit Yesterday?)
“Your honor, before we waste a lot of people’s time and money here, I feel like I should point out that my client shot a black kid and we’re in the state of Florida. — Still going to do this? Fair enough, that’s on you.”
Yesterday, George Zimmerman was briefly detained by police after a domestic dispute between his wife Shellie and her father who is the owner of the house that George and Shellie were renting, but now just George lives in. At one point, she called 911 and said that George went out to his car to get a gun after punching her father. She then later recanted that statement which led everyone to believe she had lied to the police about George having a gun, so white gun nuts were free to go, “Toldja! She’s a lying bitch.” (And, for the record, she is on trial for perjury – that George asked her to commit because he’s an honest guy who’d never lie to the authorities.) Oddly enough, she wasn’t arrested by the police for what sounds like a false police report, and neither was George because everyone suddenly realized they were probably all getting arrested for something and changed their stories. Except here’s where it gets weird because I have absolutely no legal knowledge whatsoever and probably gave my lawyer 10 heart attacks with this post alone (Hi, Dave!): Just as everything was coming up Zimmerman, his attorney went on CNN and told Anderson Cooper that there was a gun present, his client is under an “enormous amount of stress,” and these things happen with divorces. And then that same lawyer quit today. Mediaite reports:
O’Mara, who successfully defended Zimmerman on murder charges for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, will still represent Zimmerman in a defamation lawsuit against NBC, but will not represent Zimmerman in any further proceedings, including his divorce from his wife Shellie, or any possible charges from the altercation between the two on Monday afternoon.
O’Mara recently criticized Zimmerman’s publicized trip to the gun factory that made the weapon he used to shoot Martin, but was defending Zimmerman’s actions last night as “appropriate” on his new network. At a press conference following Zimmerman’s arrest Monday night, O’Mara was asked if he had any advice for the former defendant. “Pay me,” O’Mara said.
But, wait, that’s not even the most ridiculous part because, according to Radar, the crux of George and Shellie’s divorce is that he’s been cheating on her with his old fiance that broke up with him because he used to beat the shit out of her. Yup:
“George has been having an affair with is ex-fiancee. Shellie believes it flared back up after the acquittal,” friend and key defense witness John Donnelly told the site.
Veronica Zuazo was engaged to Zimmerman before he married Shellie, but after she filed a domestic violence complaint against him the couple ended things.
“I know you beat me ever so mercilessly in the past, but when I saw you duck them murder charges for shooting that poor ol’ black boy, my pussy was wet, George. Wet with desire.” – Florida, only the state of Florida
