UPDATE: 6:21 PM EST

George Zimmerman's defense attorney has officially asked for a six-week delay  in the second-degree murder trial that is set to begin June 10.

This request comes the same day the attorneys released new evidence from  Trayvon Martin's cell phone in an attempt to show that he had a history of  aggression.

As George  Zimmerman's trial inches closer and closer, his defense lawyers are  pulling out all the stops to make sure they have a strong case.

Just today, attorneys representing Zimmerman released evidence they pulled  from Trayvon  Martin's cell phone that they hope will paint a different picture  of the 17-year-old who was shot down by Zimmerman last February.  They officially notified prosecutors that they may use them at Zimmerman's  second-degree murder trial.

Although Trayvon's prior behavior has nothing to do with his murder, and  Zimmerman knew nothing of Trayvon when he shot him dead, the defense is expected  to make a case that he was a thug and a troubled teenager.

Among the evidence are pictures of a gun and a marijuana plant:

There is also photo of Trayvon blowing smoke, although it is unclear if the  substance he smoked was marijuana or tobacco.

Attorneys are also pointing to a text message in which Trayvon described  himself as "a gangsta" and wrote that his mother had kicked him out of the  house. 

According to the Orlando  Sentinel:

The texts about Trayvon being a "gangsta" came on November 22, 2011, three  months before he was killed, the same day he wrote a friend that he had been  suspended from school for cutting classes and that his mother had ordered him to  move out.

Other photos include a widely circulated picture of Trayvon with a gold grill  on the bottom row of his teeth.

This is the second batch of evidence released by the defense team in three  days. On Tuesday, new  photos of Zimmerman and Trayvon's clothes were released to the  court. 

They were taken by Zimmerman's defense team Aug. 8 at a state crime lab and  show pieces of evidence after they had been analyzed, including the hoodie with  a bullet hole in it that Trayvon wore.

In response to the evidence, Trayvon's family released this statement:

"The only photos or videos that are relevant or admissible at trial are those  of Trayvon taken the day he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. There is no  evidence that Trayvon neither had gold teeth nor gave anybody the finger the  night he was shot and killed. Therefore those pictures are irrelevant and will  not be admitted into evidence. Is the defense trying to prove Trayvon deserved  to be killed by George Zimmerman because the way he looked? If so, this  stereotypical and closed-minded thinking is the same mindset that caused George  Zimmerman to get out of his car and pursue Trayvon, an unarmed kid who he didn’t  know. The pre-trial release of these irrelevant red herrings is a desperate and  pathetic attempt by the defense to pollute and sway the jury pool. The evidence  that will be admitted at trial is the legally documented history of George  Zimmerman’s propensity for violence, such as his arrest for battery on a law  enforcement officer, his injunction to prevent domestic violence taken out by  his ex-girlfriend, and evidence of his training as a bouncer for Data Whore  Productions, Inc."

It's not entirely clear how well these photographs will stand up in court,  but do you believe that these pictures paint a picture of a "thuggish" teenager,  or just a regular teen boy? 

While we think the latter, the judge will decide when the trial starts on  June 10.

In this day and age?  With videos, music, movies, etc jamming all kinds of violence down teens' throats.....those pictures paint a TYPICAL teenage boy...not just in this country but worldwide.  But! 

Of course they are going for character assassination. Why?  Because Zimmerman did it and most of their 'evidence' has nothing to do with the actual crime of murder. Trust and believe George Zimmerman had no knowledge of Trayvon Martin before he followed him. George Zimmerman needs to be character assassinated. I'd like to note something else, recall how quick the major news networks were getting people on to come to his defense, even his bought and paid Negroe friend Joe who sold his soul to defend that scumbag?? Not once has the family of George Zimmerman ever shown any sympathy for the Martins loss or the loss of life at all. They are all sociopaths. I say lock him up!! No more questions!
