It does not confirm who ordered the case to be turned over to the State Attorney's Office.
Who did O'Mara say ordered it?
He didn't. He used the passive voice.2:05:44-6:09
And I do think that there are a lot of pressures placed upon all the witnesses, and all the parties in this case. Certainly, all of the Sanford Police Department witnesses, who have gone from being reviled, as racists, to having their, you know, their, their, their chief fired, not fired, fired again, case taken from them, Serino.
Maybe O'Mara meant that certain of the 'Sanford Police Department witnesses', including Serino, had the case taken from them by their SPD superiors.
That would be consistent with the quote attributed to Bill Lee.
Bill Lee, the police chief who lost his job following the investigation, told the Sentinel police never believed they had enough evidence to charge Zimmerman, but had Serino fill out the probable cause affidavit because without the document, the State Attorney's Office would not take over the investigation.
