Mark O’Mara, George Zimmerman’s attorney in a trial set to start jury selection tomorrow, spoke to CNN Sunday afternoon about what he’s looking for in a potential juror.
“I want people who have not made up their minds,” O’Mara said, “and people who are strong enough to decide the case on the facts and the law, and not on the external public pressure. My concern about this whole case all along is that we have so much pressure on the case, on the system, that any verdict, whatever it might be, might not be accepted as the proper one.”
200 candidates are set to appear to fill six juror slots and two alternates.
CNN also reported that no decision has been made about whether to allow a 911 recording as evidence in the trial. Multiple forensic experts testified on Saturday on whether a voice recognition could be made based on the tape, but one of the defense’s experts was unable to appear, pushing the decision back.
