The George Zimmerman Trial Got Even Weirder

There was an attorney straddling a foam doll. Also, the judge kept asking Zimmerman if he was going to testify and it got awkward.

5. And in an increasingly awkward exchange, Judge Debra Nelson questioned Zimmerman about his plans to testify.

Defense attorney Don West objected to the question three times, being overruled each time. Eventually, Nelson sternly admonished him with, “Your objection is overruled!”

Zimmerman said he needed more time before making his final decision later.

The defense rested its case on Wednesday and the prosecution will call two to three rebuttal witnesses.
