With only weeks remaining before the start of the trial, Zimmerman's defense releases texts and photos from Martin's cell phone. Some photos show Martin extending his middle finger to the camera and blowing smoke, while others show what many believe is a marijuana plant and an unidentified person holding a firearm. Text messages reveal Martin explaining to a friend that his mother told him he should move in with his father after he was caught skipping school. While Zimmerman's defense hopes to use this content during the trial, prosecutors file a motion to prevent it from being used.
