George Zimmerman's legal team has set a trial date for June 10, according to his legal defense.
This morning Judge Debra S. Nelson said that she is setting the trail date for June 10th 2013 and Zimmerman's defense lawyer, Mark O'Mara expects the trail to last no longer than 3 weeks.
At a hearing this morning Prosecutors Bernie de la Rionda said that jury selection will take longer than rest of trial.
As reported by the Orlando Sentinel:
This morning, Circuit Judge Debra Nelson set Zimmerman's trial for June 10. Attorneys in the case said they estimate the trial will last three weeks.
His wife Shellie Zimmerman, 25, is charged with perjury. Her attorney is also in court for this morning. Prosecutors say she lied at her husband's first bond hearing when she testified that the couple was broke.
Both are living in hiding in Seminole County.
Neither defendant will appear in court today. Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson is expected to ask the state and defense in each case whether they are ready for trial.
Defense attorneys are not as O’Mara was noncommittal about when he’d be fully prepared saying-
“I don’t know today when we’ll be ready for trial,” he said.
There's another hearing in his case Friday. Among the things the judge will then hear is an argument about whether to allow O'Mara to subpoena
Trayvon's school records and whether the public should know about future defense subpoenas and what evidence they produce.
She'll also hear argument about whether prosecutors are entitled to George Zimmerman's medical records.
Also today defense attorneys in George Zimmerman's case are scheduled to depose four Sanford police officers, including one who conducted a voice-stress test – something similar to a lie detector test – on Zimmerman and concluded he was telling the truth.
Zimmerman's day in court will come in 2013 and the world will see the truth.
