The prosecution is putting 'Dee Dee' on the stand for the second day of the Zimmerman trial. The circumstances of her original deposition are, hmm, controversial and her credibility may not be all the state might hope for in a star witness. And credibility aside, her basic story has Trayvon Martin initiating the verbal confrontation:
Fourth: This is now the third time Witness 8 has said Trayvon Martin initiated the verbal encounter between him and Zimmerman. In her March 19 account to Crump, her April 2 account to the prosecutor and again in this letter, she says Martin asked Zimmerman some variation of, "What are you following me for?" to which Zimmerman responded. The state continues to ignore its own witness' account.
However, she may be a tricky witness for the defense since, in this audio deposition with the state investigators (and others unmentioned), she sounds barely capable of forming sentences.That may make her appear helpless and sympathetic.
