State Attorney Angela Corey To Announce Charges Against George Zimmerman
SANFORD, Florida – Florida State Attorney Angela Corey has scheduled a news conference at her Jacksonville, Florida office at 6 p.m. today where it is expected that she will announce new finding and criminal charges against George Zimmerman regard his shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
On Monday, Corey announced that she decided not to use a Grand Jury in the Trayvon Martin shooting death investigation according to a press release issued by her office.
Corey said in that press release that “The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case…Ms. Corey was appointed as the Special Prosecutor on March 22, 2012, by Governor Rick Scott. From the moment she was assigned, Ms. Corey noted she may not need a Grand Jury.”
The Grand Jury, set to convene on April 10, 2012, was previously scheduled by Norm Wolfinger, State Attorney for Brevard County and Seminole County who stepped down from the case last month after controversy erupted over the lack of prosecution against the shooter, George Zimmerman.
This press conference comes just after George Zimmerman’s attorneys announced that they no longer represent Zimmerman because they have lost contact with him. Zimmerman also set up a website this past week seeking donations for his criminal defense fund.
