George Zimmerman appeared before a Seminole County, FL judge today, where his arraingment was set for May 29th.
According to CNN.com, Zimmerman wore a pair of gray jail coveralls, and was solemn throughout his appearance, speaking very few words.
During the brief hearing, Zimmerman’s attorney asked that records containing information on witnesses be sealed. He did not ask that Zimmerman be released on bond.
“He did note, however, that being out on bail could jeopardize Zimmerman’s safety.
‘I think nobody would deny the fact if George Zimmerman is walking down the street today, he would be at risk,’ he explained.
O’Mara said earlier Thursday he is ‘truly hoping that there will be a receding of the frustrations or anger now that the process is moving forward.'”
O’Mara has also expressed worry that, in the wake of widespread media attention and public outcry since the shooting, Zimmerman might not receive a fair trial in Sanford, FL.
