Roughly three days since seeing the jury in the George Zimmerman trial return a "not guilty" verdict, on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Mark O'Mara to the program.
Now, with the verdict having been reached, Morgan asked his guest to offer his thoughts of the prosecution's supposed star witness Rachel Jeantel. On Monday, the young woman joined the program for her first interview since taking the stand last month, and presented herself much differently, appearing strong in her convictions, and offering more about her late friend Trayvon Martin than she had been able to share on the stand.
The question facing O'Mara Tuesday, was whether or not this new side of Jeantel might have impacted the case had she reacted in court in the same manner that she did while on "Piers Morgan Live."
"I'm not sure how she would have presented herself but certainly last night she was more engaging, more straightforward, more amiable," described O'Mara. "I'm not sure why she started out with the attitude that she obviously did in the trial, but certainly some of what she could have said was lost on the jury through the attitude."
Morgan pushed O'Mara to explain how different Jeantel's description of Martin compared to the image that played out in the Sanford, Fla. courtroom:
"She painted a very different picture of Martin to the one that was repeatedly rammed home during the trial," noted Morgan. "She talked to somebody who was pretty quiet, a soft sort of character. She said he took a bit of weed twice a week but nothing that ever changed his personality from what she saw. Somebody that loved his mom and family and somebody from her understanding of the conversation on that fateful last night, was on his way home."
In the eyes of Tuesday's legal expert, the case remains full of questions:
"I'm not sure that we'll fully know," O'Mara admitted. "I know the four minutes after he said he was running, there was four minutes before the altercation took place and for whatever reason, misinterpreting George's signals, being worried or afraid or whatever or angry, he decided to reengage in a situation where George Zimmerman had the injuries and Trayvon Martin ended up dead, an event everybody would like to see changed but I have to suggest there is arguments on both sides as to who is really responsible for it."
