    The lawyer for Trayvon Martin’s family announced Thursday that they turned down a personal meeting with George Zimmerman proposed by his lawyer, Mark O’Mara. Natalie Jackson, the lawyer, said that she received a phone call from Mr. O’Mara but the family opted out, deciding to only discuss the case with officials and the media. Zimmerman could be out of jail as early as Friday if Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. grants his bail request. Zimmerman’s attorneys are expected to argue that the shooter is neither a flight risk nor a danger to the community, even though he was arrested for assaulting an officer in 2005.
