Zimmerman’s attorney said Friday he has sent subpoenas to the schools the 17-year-old Martin attended in the Miami area. The subpoenas request disciplinary notices, suspensions and tardiness records among other things.
Martin was suspended by Miami-Dade County schools because traces of marijuana were found in a plastic baggie in his book bag. He was serving the suspension when he was shot Feb. 26 by Zimmerman.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump has said the link between the youth and marijuana should have no bearing on the probe into his shooting death
