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.
