Remote Testimony Debacle in Zimmerman Case

During the Zimmerman murder trial today, remote testimony was being given via Skype with unexpected results. Scott Pleasants, a criminal justice professor at Seminole State College, was about two minutes into testimony when incoming call boxes started popping up on the screen. A loud “bing” noise accompanied each call and made it impossible to hear his testimony. Apparently Pleasant’s username was visible on the screen prompting the barrage of calls.

Pleasants tried to ignore the calls, but the judge ordered the lawyers to hang up the phone. Testimony eventually resumed via a cell phone conversation. To learn more go to www.huffingtonpost.
