FLORIDA —

Defense attorney, Jose Baez, who represented Casey Anthony in her murder trial, weighed in on the George Zimmerman trial Monday morning on the Today Show.

Baez talked about the witnesses who have testified so far and said the case is really the defense's to lose.

Baez said the prosecution has a serious lack of evidence to work with.

"Well, I think a first-year law student could win this case with the evidence they have. That doesn't say that George Zimmerman is innocent or guilty," said Baez.

When asked if he would put Zimmerman on the stand to testify, Baez said, "No, because it wouldn't be necessary."
