The State Attorney’s Office prosecuting the case against George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, mistakenly released a trove of evidence on Thursday that included a grainy photo of Martin’s body and Zimmerman’s college transcript.
Not long after Special Prosecutor Angela Corey's office sent an email to media outlets with the evidence attached, the office issued a statement asking reporters to "please disregard and do not use the information contained in the initial e-mail. It was inadvertently attached."
The Huffington Post will not be publishing the evidence that was released in full. It did not reveal any bombshells in the case, which has been closely watched for months as the State Attorney's office has incrementally released information.
But among the more superficially interesting details gleaned from the leaked evidence came from Zimmerman’s academic record. While Zimmerman, by his own account, longed to have a career in law enforcement, and to follow in his former magistrate father's footsteps, he earned a D in "Intro To Criminal Justice" and a C in "Evil Minds – Violent Predators" during his time at Seminole State college in Central Florida.
He also failed algebra twice, according to the documents.
Zimmerman was a student at the college on Feb. 26, 2012, when he shot and killed Martin, but he was expelled shortly thereafter due to safety concerns and the high profile nature of his case.
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty, and is currently free on $1 million bond.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this article referred to George Zimmerman's father, Robert, as a "magistrate judge," which is imprecise. Robert Zimmerman was a magistrate in Virginia, a position that is distinct from that of judge in that state.
