George Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara says his client will not accept a plea deal to avoid going to trial on a murder charge in the death of Trayvon Martin.
On Thursday, O’Mara told In Session correspondent Jean Casarez that he would not allow his client to accept a plea deal. “I wouldn’t plea someone who is innocent. So I think the answer is pretty easily no,” said O’Mara.
Friday morning at 9 a.m., In Session on truTV will air Casarez’s interview with Zimmerman’s attorneys. They discuss the latest developments in the Zimmerman case, including the lawsuit filed Thursday against NBC, the newly-released photos of Zimmerman’s bloody face the night he shot Martin, and how Zimmerman needs more donations to pay for his criminal defense.
