As a Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyer I have watched closely as the George Zimmerman case has progressed. Zimmerman, who is out on bail, did not attend or appear at his recent arraignment. Instead his attorney filed a plea of not guilty and waived his right to a speedy trial.
Zimmerman’s next court appearance will be August 8th for his pretrial.
This case continues to make national headlines as the “stand your ground” law continues to be in controversy.
