George Zimmerman’s attorneys may have no idea where the neighborhood watchman killer is, but special prosecutor, Angela Corey has made her decision in regards to the murder charge Zimmerman could be facing for fatally shooting 17-year-old, unarmed Trayvon Martin. While we don’t know what charges he’ll face, Zimmerman will be charged.
ABC News is reporting that Corey’s decision will be announced tonight at 6 p.m. at a news conference in Jacksonville, FL. No matter what decision Corey makes, controversy is sure to follow. Under the Florida constitution, one can only be charged with first-degree murder when there is a grand jury involved.
If they charge him with manslaughter, it’s less culpable than murder and could get Zimmerman upwards to 15 years in prison. I’m personally hoping for at least 15 years, but life would make us all happier, no? At the very least, he’ll be arrested and that’s good enough for now.
