Prosecutors started their day early arguing motions to prove that George Zimmerman was aware of self-defense, Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law as well as the basics of knowing what was needed for a self-defense case.

In a televised interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Zimmerman stated he never knew about Stand Your Ground, which is Florida’s controversial law allowing a person to not retreat when there is danger.

The prosecutors claim that Zimmerman wanted to be a police officer and desire to present that evidence to the jury. They will be allowed to present evidence of Zimmerman’s school record, which reveals he earned an “A” in litigation and “B” in investigation. In presenting this information, prosecutors will be able to show Zimmerman lied about having  a lack of knowledge required to develop a self-defense case.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara had argued the coursework was not relevant to the case and called the prosecution’s effort to introduce it as “a witch hunt,” according to the Associated Press.

Judge Debra Nelson started arguments early, at approximately 8:30 a.m. EST. Judges prefer starting arguments on evidentiary issues before a testimony begins to prevent breaks in testimony and increase the speed and improve the flow of the trial.
