Florida Special Prosecutor Angela Corey intends on announcing that George Zimmerman will be charged in the high-profile shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. What charges Zimmerman will face have not yet come to light at the time of this report which was derived from a law enforcement official close to the case who was cited by The Washington Post.
While Zimmerman has remained free after declaring self-defense in Trayvon Martin’s shooting, protected by Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law, there is potential that his current freedom will be revoked.
George has been hiding for weeks and his current whereabouts are currently unknown, even by his former attorneys who have recently severed ties with their client after a failure to communicate on Zimmerman’s part was established. Even though he has failed to correspond with his legal counsel, he has managed to get in direct contact with a number of entities including, perhaps most importantly, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey, who is tasked with deciding whether or not Zimmerman will be charged with any criminal offenses pertaining to the racially charged Trayvon Martin case.
Hal Uhrig, one of Zimmerman’s former attorneys, was quoted by Fox News having said:
“George can’t go down to the 7-Eleven to buy a Coke. There’s a bounty on his head. Whether it’s believed to be a bounty or not, it’s out there. He probably watches more of this than he should. He’s largely alone — whether that means he’s absolutely alone or not, he’s at least emotionally alone. And you might even say “emotionally crippled” by virtue of the pressure of this case.”
What do you think of Angela Corey’s decision to prosecute George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin?
