Zimmerman Plans To Ask For Bail Next Week

George Zimmerman plans to ask a judge to set him free on bail next week, his attorney told the Associated Press late Thursday.

Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the killing of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, has been held without bail since Wednesday.

But his attorney, Mark O’Mara, told the AP he would be asking for bail, probably on April 20.
