George Zimmerman interrogation video part of newly-released discovery documents

June 26, 2012

New discovery evidence has been released by the Florida State Attorney’s Office in the George Zimmerman criminal trial.

The new evidence released on Tuesday included a dossier that, among other things, contains a “computer voice stress test” in which a computer monitored Zimmerman’s voice during a special question-and-answer session on the late February shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

The documents provided by the Attorney General’s Office say no deception was detected by Zimmerman during the voice stress test.

Also released on Tuesday was an hour-long police interrogation video in which Zimmerman is questioned about the shooting.

 

The suspect in the shooting is currently being jailed after a judge found Zimmerman misrepresented his financial status during a bail hearing in April. Zimmerman’s wife Shellie Zimmerman was later arrested on one count of perjury stemming from the same hearing.
