George Zimmerman Murder Trial May Not Begin Until 2013



The murder trial of George Zimmerman may not begin until 2013.

Zimmerman’s attorneys are busy preparing his case and are asking for more time to do so. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester approved the defense’s request to postpone the case until Wednesday, Oct. 3, according to Central Florida News 13.

“. . . There is still a great deal of information to be gathered regarding this case, and we are in the early stages of preparing our reciprocal discovery — a process that can take a few months — and it is simply too early in the process to set firm trial dates,” O’Mara wrote on his website. “Since our June 1 statement, a number of issues, including the revocation of Mr. Zimmerman’s bond and our Motion to Disqualify Trial Judge, have added to the complexity of the defense process.”

Zimmerman is currently free after posting $100,000 to a bail bondsman on a $1 million bond. He is charged with second-degree murder for the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
