The Orlando Sentinel reports a public defender filed a not-guilty plea for Zimmerman and a request for a jury trial.
Zimmerman is accused of sending threatening messages to private investigator Dennis Warren. Warren had contacted Zimmerman about a documentary series on the slain Trayvon Martin that’s being produced by rapper Jay Z. A sheriff’s report says Warren received numerous calls and texts from Zimmerman in December.
A judge earlier this month denied Warren’s request for a restraining order against Zimmerman.
Zimmerman killed Martin in 2012. He was acquitted of criminal charges.
