  •  I saw that in the charge but saw no (0+ / 0-)

    legal significance since there wasn't an enhanced charge regarding violence towards a minor.   There might be a strict liability regarding minors in FL so that despite subjective indicators like height doesn't matter. Again though I didn't see a special charge.  But someone that tall and at night I would imagine it's reasonable to conclude he was an adult.  I'd have to hear what the law in FL is to decide on whether it makes a difference or not.

      I'm also not sure of the legalities of shooting an unarmed minor, but Zimmerman called him a kid  as he described him in his call to the police operator.  So if his defense is going to bring up this point about not knowing his age, they will be refuted by his own statement.
