A Monday report by the Orlando-Sentinal indicates that George Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara will make a motion for the state of Florida to pay the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer $200,000 to $300,000 for his legal expenses.
According to The Sentinel, O'Mara's plan is for his client to collect every penny the "Sunshine State" owes him following his acquittal for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Excluding lawyer fees, state law requires Fla., to pay for Zimmerman's legal bill, including costs for expert witnesses, travel, depositions, photocopies, and more.
Monday evening, his criminal defense attorney told the paper that the motion "is in the works" and that Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson will be the one to authorize the payments.
Last month, the 29-year-old Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges stemming from Martin's death on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Fla.
