Safety Now a Concern For George Zimmerman, Says Attorney

After a year and a half of living as a hermit, George Zimmerman emerged from a Florida courthouse a free man, cleared of all charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

A jury found Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder late Saturday night and declined to convict him on a lesser charge of manslaughter.

His brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., says the former neighborhood watch volunteer was still processing the reality that he wouldn’t serve prison time for the killing, which Zimmerman has maintained was an act of self-defense. However, with many critics angry over his acquittal, his freedom will likely be limited.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara suggested Zimmerman’s safety would be an ongoing concern. He says a fringe element of society still wants revenge for Martin’s killing.
