Zimmerman Prosecutors: Trayvon Martin’s Girlfriend Lied Under Oath

State prosecutors admitted Tuesday that Martin’s girlfriend falsely claimed she was in the hospital on the day of Martin’s funeral, committing perjury.
This admission greatly damages the credibility of Martin’s girlfriend, whom Martin called on the night Zimmerman shot and killed him, for this is not the first time she has been caught lying.
Identified as “witness 8” in records, Martin’s girlfriend told Trayon Martin’s family attorney Benjamin Crump in a recorded interview that she was 16 years of age right after Martin’s passing. She was in fact 18 years of age when she was speaking to Martin.
Crump told reporters Martin’s girlfriend was 16 and has since “said he did not knowingly misrepresent her age.”
As this article indicates, “witness 8” provided “information” that is very important to the prosecution’s case, information that the MSM have also been publishing/broadcasting. And now it’s credibility is impeachable because “witness 8” has been caught lying under oath. This also creates a Scylla-Charybdis situation for the prosecution. They obviously want to pursue the perjury case against Zimmerman’s wife, since it reflects on him. If they decline prosecuting “witness 8”, that may hurt the perjury case they do want to prosecute. OTOH, prosecuting “witness 8” might possibly destroy any shred of credibility she might have in the case against Zimmerman. I wonder what other “information” came to the police through Martin family lawyer Crump, and if so, whether it’s been verified.
