George Zimmerman May Go Free

George Zimmerman could be freed on Friday. He has been in jail for the murder of Trayvon Marin, but his lawyer said he could be freed after tomorrow’s bond hearing. “[To keep him in jail] the state would need to establish that the defendant is both a flight risk and a danger to the community—and there is little or no evidence to support such allegations,” one expert said. Bond is likely to be $1,000 or more, and Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara added, “I just hope we can get my client out to some place safely. There have been threats on his life.” Meanwhile, a task force was formed by the Florida governor to review the Stand Your Ground law that has been brought to light because of the case.
