The defense lawyer who opened the George Zimmerman murder trial with a knock-knock joke has found himself in a sticky situation Friday after apparently taking a “selfie” photo was his daughtersRachel and Molly West that was later posted to Instagram.
Don West appears in a photo on the account of someone with the user name “mollywestttt” with the caption “We beat stupidity celebration cones … #zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit.” The implication is that West and his daughter were celebrating week one of the trial with ice cream cones.
ABC’s Miami affiliate Local 10 has been on the case, using their dedicated Zimmerman Twitter account to give updates on the unusual photo. The station indicated that West would likely issue a statement on the photo but as of Friday evening, that had not happened.
They did point out that the tie in the Instagram photo matches the one West wore on the first day of the trial, Monday.
i know the sequester prevents the jury from seeing this obnoxiousness, this guy is trying to taint the reputation of a murdered 17year old when his daughters character IMO is questionable, he has no control or respect from her to make such a jackass move while he is in the middle of a trial.
