George Zimmerman’s attorney on girlfriend’s ‘change of heart’

Last month, George Zimmerman was arrested after a dispute with his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe in Seminole County, Florida.

Zimmerman, 30, will not face charges in the incident, however. Wednesday, State Attorney Phil Archer announced “there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution.”

In November, Scheibe accused Zimmerman in a 911 call of pointing a gun at her and pushing her outside of a home the couple shared. Scheibe has since provided Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub with a sworn statement asking that he not be charged with aggravated assault, battery or criminal mischief.

Lisa Bloom, legal analyst for NBC’s “TODAY” Show, spoke exclusively with Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub. Bloom, author of the upcoming book Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It, asked Weintraub what spurred Scheibe’s “change of heart.” 

“I don’t know that there is a change of heart,” Weintraub answered. “I think that there as an argument between two people that escalated, they’re under a lot of stress, they’re in the public’s eye…I think that in the course of a domestic relationship sometimes things do get out of hand.”

Bloom also asked Weintraub if Scheibe could face any legal trouble for her admission to making inaccurate statements to law enforcement on the 911 call. Weintraub told Bloom she doesn’t think Scheibe lied and that her call to police may have have been taken out of context.
