FL. judge denies Zimmerman request to delay trial
MIAMI, FLORIDA: Just a year after the murder of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman is finally preparing to stand trial for what some still refer to as a death that shouldn’t of happened. Zimmerman, whom has already been scolded by several judges throughout his case — reportedly requested a delay in the start of his trial, but was rejected.
“We are four months away from a trial date,” Circuit Judge Debra Nelson told defense lawyers during the hearing. “I don’t see any of your issues to be insurmountable.”
Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’ Mara refused to comment.
