Nancy Grace defends key witness Jeantel

NEED TO KNOW
  • George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin
  • Rachel Jeantel was on the phone with Martin before he was shot

HLN’s Nancy Grace defended the prosecution’s key witness, Rachel Jeantel, after the young woman faced some criticism for her feisty demeanor and choice of words during the two days she testified in the murder trial of her friend, Trayvon Martin.

“Everybody can laugh all the want to. That she can’t read cursive, or that she has nicknames that she goes by that some people may laugh at. You know what? Laugh all you want to. Nobody ever said that a murder trial was a tea party. Where everybody had perfect manners, spoke perfectly. That’s not what this is about. This is about the death of a high school junior and whether a 29-year-old is guilty or innocent.”
