Many other lawyers say most of this material will never be shown inside the Seminole County Courtroom during the trial this summer.
The new president of the local chapter of Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers agrees with the prosecutor on this issue.
"There is no reason why this information has been released, other than to affect jurors," said attorney Gene Nichols. "The allegation, or what the Zimmerman defense team wants everyone to believe, is that Trayvon was a violent young man. They want you to believe that Trayvon was involved with drugs because maybe he made statements over his texts. These are texts that would most likely never see the light of day in court."
Cory said she believes the Florida legislature should change the rules so that no evidence should be released to the public prior to trial, and then only what the judge has ruled as admissible during the trial.
Jury selection in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial is slated to begin next month. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
