HOT TOPIC: GEORGE ZIMMERMAN TO BE CHARGED; CELEB PARENTS REACT
According to officials, authorities will bring criminal charges against George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case.
NBC reports, “The special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case will announce criminal charges against George Zimmerman on Wednesday, a law enforcement official told NBC News.The nature of the charges wasn’t immediately known, the official told NBC News Justice Department correspondent Pete Williams, speaking on condition of anonymity. But because Angela Corey — the special prosecutor appointed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott to re-examine the case — previously announced that she wouldn’t take the case to a grand jury, first-degree murder is not an option. Corey’s office confirmed that a news conference would be at 6 p.m. ET in Jacksonville, Fla.”
