ORLANDO, Fla. -- George Zimmerman's attorney has told a newspaper that he plans to ask the state of Florida to cover $200,000 to $300,000 of his legal expenses.
The Orlando Sentinel says Mark O'Mara told the paper Monday evening that because Zimmerman was acquitted, state law requires Florida to pay all his legal costs.
O'Mara said Monday that was going to make a motion asking Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson to authorize the payments.
The 29-year-old Zimmerman was acquitted last month of all charges including second-degree murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., last year. His murder trial lasted five weeks.
An after-hours email sent to defense attorneys was not immediately answered.
