George Zimmerman's attorney to ask for bail
The attorney for George Zimmerman plans to ask a judge to allow the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing an unarmed, black teen to post bond -- though he believes it will be difficult.
(CNN) New York - "My hope is that the judge will grant a bond, and that it'll be a bond that the family can make," attorney Mark O'Mara said Wednesday. "They are not a family of means. So that's going to be difficult to begin with, and that conditions are that you stay local, I think that may be difficult."
"I think nobody would deny the fact if George Zimmerman is walking down the street today, he would be at risk," he said.
Zimmerman, 28, who had been in hiding, turned himself in Wednesday after authorities said they will charge him with second-degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
