ORLANDO, Fla. -- Former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman wants to use Trayvon Martin's school records as part of his defense.

Zimmerman's attorney said Friday he has sent subpoenas to the schools the 17-year-old Martin attended in the Miami area. The subpoenas request disciplinary notices, suspensions and tardiness records among other things.

Martin was suspended by Miami-Dade County schools because traces of marijuana were found in a plastic baggie in his book bag. He was serving the suspension when he was shot Feb. 26 by Zimmerman.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump has said the link between the youth and marijuana should have no bearing on the probe into his shooting death
