Circuit Court Judge Kenneth R. Lester Jr. presides over a hearing at the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center in Sanford

A Florida judge today refused to discuss his wife, who a newspaper reports worked in the same office that handled previous felony charges that were dismissed against George Zimmerman, the man now responsible for the shooting death of an unarmed Trayvon Martin. “I can’t even comment about anything,” Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester told ReddingNewsReview.com.

Lester, who is handling the Martin case ever a since another judge recused herself, because her husband had been commenting on the case as an analyst, appears to be married to longtime Orange County Assistant States Attorney Dorothy Sedgwick, according to TampaBay.com.

Sedgwick’s office was responsible for charging Zimmerman with two felonies in 2005. The felonies were later reduced to misdemeanors.

Zimmerman, whose the son of a former judge in the state of Virginia, has bragged on a newly discovered Myspace page about having beaten felony charges in the past. On the Myspace page, Zimmerman wrote about a woman who he was accused of abusing: “Im still free!” he wrote on Aug. 24, 2005. “The ex tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look like a bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me!” A week later he bragged about another victory. He wrote about an officer he was accused of assaulting: “2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!! The man knows he was wrong but still got this hump, Thanks to everyone friends and fam, G baby you know your my rock!”. To hear more on this story visit www.robreddingnewsreview.com.
