Zimmerman's Attorneys Asking State to Cover Legal Expenses
Attorneys for George Zimmerman say they plan to ask the State of Florida to cover their client's legal expenses.
Mark O'Mara says that because Zimmerman was acquitted, state law requires Florida to pay all his legal costs.
Zimmerman racked up nearly $300,000 for his defense.
O'Mara said Monday that he was going to make a motion asking circuit judge Debra Nelson to authorize the payments.
The 29-year-old Zimmerman was acquitted last month of all charges, including second-degree murder, in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford last year.
