Zimmerman Will Claim Poverty

| August 15, 2012

The attorney for George Zimmerman, the shooter in the Trayvon Martin case, says his client is broke and he plans to ask a judge to declare Zimmerman indigent. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Zimmerman and his wife Shellie can’t work, and are spending much of their money on security because they fear for their lives, according to his attorney, Mark O’Mara. He said Zimmerman’s legal defense fund, which had collected about $250,000 is now down to about $50,000 and has $20,000 in outstanding bills. If Zimmerman, 28, were declared indigent, taxpayers would pay his legal expenses.

  1. question says:

    The George & Shellie con continues:

    — Zimmerman and his wife Shellie CAN’T WORK and are spending much of their scammed money on SECURITY

    — Zimmerman should not even be OUT of jail on bail after his direct perjury to the judge on a 2nd degree murder charge

    –Same con who got ABC/crew/Barbara Walters to come to Florida for a promised interview. Once they arrived Zimmerman said that the plans had changed, and he was refusing to do the interview unless ABC would pay for a month in a hotel.

    –Now he wants to be ‘declared indigent’ so taxpayers, you and I, would pay his legal expenses, while he sits at home watching TV

    Only thing that might, just might, mitigate spending on cent of citizens hard earned money on this con is paying for his bologna sandwiches sitting in a jail cell.

  2. We shouldn’t have to pay not one cent for him or his wife. Murders, Liars, Thieves, scandlers and so on, should be locked up and throw away the key. HE KILLED THAT TRAYVON MARTIN ON COLD BLOOD. NI QUESTIONS ASKED….
