SEMINOLE COUNTY –
A date has been set: George Zimmerman will go to trial on June 10, 2013, for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The trial date was set Wednesday during a docket sounding with Judge Debra Nelson, who took over the case in late August. Zimmerman was not in court when the decision was made.
Today’s hearing only lasted about 10 minutes.
Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara said his client and his wife Shellie are in hiding right now. They did not appear in court today, just their lawyers.
“I think June 10th is a good target date. It’s what, seven or eight months off? Gives us some time to get ready and if the discovery goes the way it should, if we are not stalled in getting our discovery, then we’ll be ready for June,” O’Mara said.
