Williams: Case evidence offered cause for a conviction

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz has been attacking the prosecutor relentlessly since the inception of the case and no doubt feels vindicated by the jury’s verdict.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

 "I have seen many defendants, including death row inmates, convicted with much less evidence than was presented against Zimmerman. Therefore, I disagree with this growing consensus that the law required an acquittal. There were facts upon which a rational jury could have convicted Zimmerman, and had they done so, his conviction almost certainly would have been upheld on appeal."

Kenneth Williams teaches evidence, criminal law and procedure, international criminal law and human rights and a death penalty seminar at the South Texas College of Law.
