Yet Another George Zimmerman Story

You know ...if it was up to me...I'd never write about George Zimmerman again.  I don't even want to speak this clown's name...but like O.J. Simpson...He just can't stay out of the news...

Check this out.. George Zimmerman will ask the state of Florida to reimburse him for as much as $300,000 in expenses he racked up successfully defending himself in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Can You freakin believe this?

George Zimmerman and his legal team believe they are entitled to the refund because Mr.Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder July 13 for having shot and killed Trayvon Martin, age 17.

The shooting in February 2012 sparked a national discussion over racial profiling and Stand Your Ground laws after  George Zimmerman, a self appointed neighborhood watch volunteer, said he acted in self-defense.

The motion, to be filed by George Zimmerman's lead attorney, Mark O'Mara, would seek refunds for the hundreds of thousands of dollars the defense spent on fees for expert witnesses and court reporters for depositions, travel and other similar expenses.

Attorney fees for the defense team, including Attorney, MarkO'Mara, wouldn't be part of the motion.

The state Judicial Administrative Commission, which would be responsible for paying out the money if the request is even approved, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday night....They are probably still laughing after having read the request.

George Zimmerman's request was first reported by The Orlando Sentinel, which quoted  Mark O'Mara as saying he would soon file the motion with state Circuit Judge Debra Nelson.

The Sentinel reported that George Zimmerman's request would be based on an  old Florida law that says a defendant who's acquitted isn't liable for costs associated with his or her case. It must be approved by a judge or a clerk.

Mark O'Mara told the newspaper he expects the Judicial Administrative Commission to throw up roadblocks.

"That's where the fight is," said Mark O'Mara, who told the paper he's been paid nothing by George Zimmerman but has kept billing records.

In the words of Tony Soprano..."Oh Poor Poor You." 

In My opinion...The State of Florida shouldn't pay George Zimmerman or his attorneys not one red cent...If for no other reason then the fact that he has given the state it's worst publicity in years!

If anything...He OWES Florida money for lost tourist revenue!

It is the law. It applies to Zimmerman as much as any other.
I agree that if a defendant is acquitted, he should be reimbursed. Why should someone who was found not-guilty have to pay for a trial?

@anonymous- Let him use all of that money he supposedly raised on his website to pay his remaining court fees.

Why should tax dollars continue to support this murderous clown?

Relax Keith. I know you know that evil never wins! Never, ever! George will get his just desserts! We probably won't get to witness it because we'll be in the process of trying to duck our own "come uppence" for the things we've done. His life is miserable now, and will remain that way for as long as he lives. He can't take a step without looking over his shoulder. He can't buy a cup of soda without checking it for urine, a burger without the possibility of spit. Is that foam on the beer really from natural carbonation? Georgie won't know. Even his wife has to deal with the criminal justice system because of her actions during this murder of an innocent.
And I'll bet when he sues the state of Fla. for the court costs, those who supported George in the murder of a child will scream "Hell no" when it comes to giving their money. They will be the first to tell George to go to Texas!!
