7-11 clerk: 6/24/13
« on: June 24, 2013, 01:28:43 PM »
The 7-11 clerk was the state's second witness.
Here is a thread for analysis. Comparison with previous statements, correlation or contradictions with other witnesses or evidence from discovery or pre-trial motions or interviews are all relevant here.

The clerk said he was 5'7".  I keep seeing erroneous reports that he said he was 5'10".

Well....here's a link to the testimony.   O'mara even asks him to reconfirm his height,  if O'mara had misheard then so did the State IMO,  because they did not object,  and they knew where O'mara was going with it and why he wanted it on the record...

And he does not look 5'7 to me...we shall see....   ;)

Oh, my bad.  He did say 5' 10".  I heard 5'7" but he said 5'10".  Sorry.  Too bad there is no way to delete my comment.

I wonder if they measured his height in the deposition. If not, they probably should have. People -- especially men -- often overstate their height. In any case, the defense got what they wanted. If the clerk is 5'10", Martin had to be over 6'.

No worries jujube,  he was not speaking into the mic,  it was kinda hard to make out.

As far as comparing his height to TM,  TM appears much taller in the video even accounting for the hoodie...he is approximately 4" taller than the clerk in my best guestimation.

I cannot even begin to picture 5'8 GZ trying to lay hands on TM,  gun or no gun....and yea...stranger things have happened but I'm not buying it.

5'11" 158 lbs.   TM's height and weight.  The clerk might be 5' 7" standing on his tipoes.
