Alicia Martin on Dr. Phil
« on: September 10, 2012, 06:32:07 PM »
Because of tennis, Dr. Phil's interview with the Ostermans got bumped to tomorrow, according to an Orlando Sentinel blog. http://www.tampabay.com/tb-two/blog/2012/4/25/trayvon-martins-stepmom-he-was-just-good-boy/

The Sentinel repeats what Dr. Phil claims: that this is the first interview of Alicia Martin. It isn't, however. The Tampa Bay Times had one earlier, in which she complains about being cut out of the discussion. http://www.tampabay.com/tb-two/blog/2012/4/25/trayvon-martins-stepmom-he-was-just-good-boy/

I follow the case closely (although not as close as some of you), but I was surprised to hear of a stepmom who helped raise Trayvon for 15 years.

Are we allowed to discuss this? Alicia Martin is kind of a fly in the ointment where
the PR campaign is concerned.

I'm not a mod, but Jeralyn has discussed similar subjects. I'm thinking the facts asserted in the interview are up for discussion as long as it isn't speculation as fact, a character attack on a party that's being promoted or comments likely to devolve into character attacks. That's been the past guidance at least.

How so?

I wish the interviewer had asked her if she thinks W-6 is lying.

Why must you always rile such intense emotions? Alicia Martin was 240 mi away on the evening of Feb 26th W-6 reported events as they transpired in his backyard 6 feet from his porch. Why would you insinuate that he is lying?

That happens sometimes when people discuss things, as on a discussion forum.

Has Alicia Martin been listed as a witness yet? If not, she will be soon.

You can discuss Alicia Martin's interview and past public statements.
She has given interviews before.
She and Tracy Martin are getting divorced.

Tracy and Sybrina’were married on 6/11/94. They divorced on 6/23/99. 

Tracy and Alicia were married in 2005.  She previously told the media they split up a few weeks before Trayvon died. Tracy Martin filed for divorce on 8/9/12. They have no children together.

I doubt she will be called as a witness since she has no first-hand information about the shooting.

It seems that the defense is intent on exploring all possible sources of information about Trayvon Martin's background that might be relevant to the case. Alicia might even have video/audio that includes Trayvon's elusive voice.

Quote
As made apparent from the state’s inquiries regarding Mr. Zimmerman’s background, it is common to subpoena sources to determine if relevant information exists. Our discovery rules allow for such inquiries, and they are vital to a proper presentation of all relevant evidence. Once the information is gathered and analyzed, decisions will be made as to whether we will seek to use that information in court. If there is an objection to it, the court has the authority to decide, balancing the rights of a defendant to a fair trial with the privacy right of those individuals affected by the disclosure. - gzlegalcase

Just out of curiosity, what about his background would or would not be relevant to the case?

That would go under a different topic. It's not relevant to Alicia. Feel free to ask that question in the evidence thread so this stays relevant to Alicia.
