Pay Up: George Zimmerman seeks Florida to pay $200K-$300K of his legal bills


Pay up, Bitch!: george zimmerman

It’s time for the sunshine state to pay up after what the state of Florida put this innocent man through.I’m sure this news will irk the civil rights industrial complex.But, it wasn’t like they didn’t have their big pay day either from DOJ grant to fund protests.: : : 

Orlando Sentinel reports George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin, plans to ask the state of Florida to cover $200,000 to $300,000 of his legal expenses, his attorney told the Orlando Sentinel Monday evening.

Because Zimmerman was acquitted, state law requires Florida to pay all his legal costs, minus the biggest one: the fee that goes to his lawyers.

That includes the cost of expert witnesses, travel, depositions, photocopies, even that animated 3-D video that defense attorneys showed jurors during closing argument that depicts Trayvon punching Zimmerman.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara said Monday that he would soon prepare a motion, asking Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson to authorize the payments.
That motion, he said, “is in the works.”

His office is still collecting numbers, he said, but he estimated the request would total $200,000 to $300,000.

That would be on top of the estimated $902,000 that public agencies already have spent on Zimmerman’s five-week second-degree murder trial that ended July 13.

The 29-year-old Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter by a six-member Seminole County jury for shooting Trayvon, an unarmed black high-school junior from Miami Gardens, in Sanford Feb. 26, 2012. Moments before the fight and shooting, Zimmerman had called police, describing the teenager as suspicious.

Maybe Al Sharpton can send Zimmerman a check from his stash he’s not paying his back taxes with?
