Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Corey told reporters Tuesday night that she would hold a news conference about the case within 72 hours. A news release from her office said the event will be held in Sanford or Jacksonville, Fla.
I’ll believe it when it happens. I don’t want to speculate right now, but y’all feel free to go ahead. Just remember – the standard of proof for filing charges is probable cause. The standard for convictions is beyond a reasonable doubt.
CNN reports that Zimmerman is in custody (voluntary surrender) and has retained an new attorney named Mark O’Meara
Presser with Angela Corey:
“Blah, blah, blah, we worked hard blah, blah, we’re wonderful people blah, blah, blah, today we filed an information charging George Zimmerman with murder in the second degree blah blah blah.”
