On a day which saw the start of the third week in the George Zimmerman trial, on Monday night "Piers Morgan Live" asked Daryl Parks to share his reaction to the proceedings thus far, offering his specific perspective on a pair of key developments.
As the judge ruled that Trayvon Martin's toxicology report will be allowed as evidence in the trial, the co-counsel for the late teen's family questioned the tactics initiated by the defense:
"They are committed to making this 17-year-old young black child appear to be some thug and to throw him into some negative light," said Parks. "It is totally wrong what they are trying to do to his character and to the image of him in this case."
As the Zimmerman camp called countless witnesses to the stand, each identifying the defendants voice on an audio tape while also vouching for his character, Piers Morgan asked his guest if the State slipped up by not having a larger witness list themselves:
"The amount of character evidence that they got into the testimony earlier today was probably out of bounds in terms of the amount that was there, and probably opened the door to some of the character evidence that they introduced in a very sly way," said Parks, who joined the program live from Florida. "However, you must remember that they [the State] have the right to put on the rebuttal case too. I'm pretty sure they will consider the possibility of putting on other rebuttal witnesses in their case when they come to that point."
