Court will resume this morning at 8:30 am EDT with a hearing outside the presence of the jury regarding the admissibility of testimony by a professor at the local community college introducing the defendant’s textbook and course work on the law of self-defense and Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. Also at issue is the admissibility of the defendant’s application for employment with a police department in a county in Virginia and an application to ride-a-long as a civilian with a Sanford police officer.
The evidence from the school is being offered to show that the defendant knew the law of self-defense and the Florida SYG law.
The applications for police employment and to ride-along are being offered to show his interest in police work (i.e., he is a police wannabe).
