READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On the heels of yet another day of fascinating courtroom proceedings in the George Zimmerman trial, coming up this evening "Piers Morgan Live" invites Mel Robbins to offer her expert analysis.
Herself a criminal defense attorney, Robbins notes the strength of the testimony provided by a man the prosecution called to the witness stand:
"John Good was a fantastic witness," she states, referring to a gentleman who was able to offer key specifics regarding the actual, physical altercation that took place between the defendant and the late Trayvon Martin. "He was very clear, I was in the courtroom with him, the jurors leaning in Piers, taking down every single word as he flat out said, 'yes, I can’t say 100 percent but my gut, what do I tell you who was yelling, it was George Zimmerman.' He’s said very clearly, it was George Zimmerman on the bottom. So that was unbelievable."
Joining Piers Morgan from just outside the Sanford, Fla. courthouse, Robbins also offers key insight into other areas of Friday's testimony which she found to be particularly compelling and significant:
"The defense was able to establish that there were wounds all around his [Zimmerman's] head. Why? Well that supports the rolling around theory on the ground in the scuffle. He [attorney Mark O'Mara] also held up that photo of George Zimmerman with the nose that’s like 20 times bigger than it should be. A dozen times for the jury to see," explains Robbins. "And finally, what’s the last thing that physician’s assistant said? She said, she basically agreed with O’Mara and said, ‘well yea, if he didn’t stop the fight he would have been injured much more seriously.' So it’s kind of shocking, what the prosecution let the defense get away with today."
