12/09/2013 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)
Florida – The girlfriend of George Zimmerman has reportedly recanted domestic violence allegations for which he was arrested last month. As reported by The Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman’s defense lawyer requested that he be allowed to see Samantha Scheibe after she said in a sworn statement that she wanted to be with him.
Scheibe is quoted in the report as saying in the statement, which accompanies new court documents, “I do not want George Zimmerman charged. I make this decision freely, knowingly and voluntarily, without any intimidation coercion or undue influences.”
Zimmerman was arrested on Nov 18 following a 911 call made by Scheibe during an argument between the two. Among the charges filed against him were aggravated assault, after authorities claimed Scheibe claimed Zimmerman pointed a gun at her.
Scheibe’s statement is quoted as continuing, “Further, I request that the Seminole County State Attorney’s Office not be allowed to harass me because I do not wish to take part in any prosecution of this case on behalf of the State.”
