“The state has virtually unlimited resources to prosecute George,” his attorney Mark O’Mara said on the defense fund website. “To finance his defense, however, George relies on the generosity of individuals who believe he is innocent.”
Spokesman Shawn Vincent said Zimmerman’s attorneys want his second-degree murder trial to be moved from June to November. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.
A hearing for the suspect is scheduled to take place in April, 45 days before the scheduled trial.
