Defense: Zimmerman Had 'Shaken Baby Syndrome'

In a TV interview on Friday, George Zimmerman's lawyer cited "Shaken Baby Syndrome" in his defense, backing Zimmerman's argument that he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman says Martin attacked him and pounded his head in the pavement, and his lawyer maintains this could have caused temporary brain damage and explains his reaction. Meanwhile, his family has set up a website,, to raise money for “their living expenses and for his defense,” the family’s attorneys said in a statement Friday. The neighborhood-watch captain has yet to be charged with a crime.
