Lawyer plans to seek Zimmerman legal fees from Fla
The Associated Press
The Orlando Sentinel says Mark O'Mara told the paper Monday evening ( http://bit.ly/15rjlNR) that because Zimmerman was acquitted, state law requires Florida to pay all his legal costs.
O'Mara said Monday that was going to make a motion asking Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson to authorize the payments.
The 29-year-old Zimmerman was acquitted last month of all charges including second-degree murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., last year. His murder trial lasted five weeks.
An after-hours email sent to defense attorneys was not immediately answered.
