George Zimmerman Officially Charged In Trayvon Martin Shooting
George Zimmerman turned himself in yesterday after he was officially charged with the second-degree murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The prosecutor in the case finally reached the decision that Zimmerman’s self defense story was not supported by the evidence.
Zimmerman is now working with a new lawyer after being dropped by his previous two attorneys. His first lawyers maintain that George is innocent, but the lack of communication made it impossible to represent him.
His new lawyer says that he will plead not guilty when he goes before a judge. Zimmerman was booked yesterday evening into the Seminole County Jail, and he could face a minimum of 25 years in prison or a maximum of life if convicted.
