Disappointing, frustrating to see so many news outlets, TV/online, misstating what occurred late last night on Day 13 of #ZimmermanTrial.

Inappropriate of P to suggest D witness tweeted abt trial w/in year, w/o any evidence that she had. #ZimmermanTrial http://t.co/g48lXX5Wtw

@DMihokovich @OliviaGrace18 Both parties rested their cases in chief. Rebuttal is over. She cannot be recalled. Fine to tweet.

Yes. Next few tweets are for you. RT “@essveecee: @me is the door open to be found guilty on lesser charges?” #ZimmermanTrial

News outlets keep saying (erroneously) that P/D will argue whether manslaughter charge goes to jury. That is inaccurate. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 19:59:15 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

FL has both mandatory and discretionary lesser included charges. For 2nd deg dep-mind, manslaughter is a MANDATORY lesser. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:01:29 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

There is a 2nd manslaughter tho: manslaughter of "culpable negligence." THAT is what D will argue against this morn. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:02:39 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

FL juries an consider "manslaughter fact" (mandatory lesser) vs "culpable negligence" (discretionary lesser). #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:04:06 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

P also asked for discretionary lesser: Aggravated Assault. D will fight bc AgAslt carries higher max penalty than murder-2. #ZimmermanTrial

My article re: mandatory vs discretionary lessers, w/ FL standard jury instructions for each charge: http://t.co/Oe5sqhC5aG #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:07:08 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

Note: D will argue hard against sending Manslaughter Culpable Negligence to jury, but D will lose. Judge will side w/ P. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:08:16 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

There is a final charge added that, mysteriously, news is ignoring: Possession of a Firearm, Discharge Causing Death. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:09:47 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

P requested that final Category II Discretionary Lesser included offense; D did not object. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:11:00 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

Recap, GZ will face 3-5 main charges. Judge will grant P's request even though D will argue and preserve record for appeal. #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:12:11 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

At minimum GZ jury will consider: 1. 2nd degree murder, depraved mind 2. Manslaughter 3. Firearm Discharge Causing Death #ZimmermanTrial

11/07/2013 20:13:34 WIB
elisabeth epps is tired. @elisabeth

At max, GZ may* also face: 4. Manslaughter/Culpable Negligence 5. Aggravated Assault *P wants, D objects, Judge will grant. #ZimmermanTrial
