George Zimmerman Denied Delay Of Trayvon Martin Trial

Request Denied To Delay George Zimmerman Trial In Trayvon Martin Shooting

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb 5 (Reuters) – A Florida judge on Tuesday rejected a bid by George Zimmerman to delay his June trial for the murder of unarmed, black teenager Trayvon Martin, whom he s**t and killed a year ago this month.

“I don’t see any of your issues as insurmountable,” Seminole County Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson said in denying a motion by Zimmerman’s lawyer, Mark O’Mara, for a continuance in the racially charged trial.

A memorial service for Martin, who would have turned 18 on Tuesday, was held on the courthouse lawn before the hearing got under way.

Before ruling, Nelson noted she had set aside several full days of court time for Zimmerman’s defense attorneys and prosecutors to bring issues before the court, but most of that time had gone unused.

She also said O’Mara had been working on Zimmerman’s defense since April 2012 and still has another four months to prepare for the June 10 trial.
