Florida could owe thousands to Zimmerman lawyers
FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The State of Florida could end up paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to George Zimmerman's lawyers.
Mark O'Mara told a local paper he plans to ask the state to cover $200,000 to 300,000 of his legal expenses.
He says because Zimmerman was acquitted, state law requires Florida to pay all his legal costs.
Zimmerman was acquitted last month of all charges including second-degree murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
