FL Defense Lawyer On CNN: After Today, ‘Impossible’ Not To See Zimmerman ‘As A Good Guy’

Appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, a Florida-based criminal defense attorney was asked on Monday for her thoughts on the course of the day’s testimony in the trial of George Zimmerman for the 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin. The attorney said that the start of the defense phase of the trial has been good for Zimmerman. She added that it is “impossible” not to see Zimmerman as a “good guy.”

“It seems as though there have been some big blows to the prosecution,” Tapper said of the course of the day’s testimony.

“This is a classic scorch and burn defense,” observed former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden.

Diane Tennis, a criminal defense attorney in Florida, agreed. “Certainly hearing from the people who love George Zimmerman, it’s hard to think of him not as a good guy at this point,” she said. “So, yes, the defense has made some inroads.”
