Last week when George Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara let his client take the stand and apologize to Trayvon Martin’s parents most legal experts agreed that it was a bad move. Today, O’Mara agrees.
After the bond hearing last week, Trayvon’s parents said they didn’t appreciate Zimmerman’s public statement of remorse.
O’Mara told CBS’s Morning show:
"To be honest, had I known that -- maybe had I seen the press conference -- I'm not sure that we would have done it at the bond hearing, because the purpose of it truly was to get to the family and to respond directly to the family's request. Had I known or been told that that wasn't the time, it wouldn't have happened. So, I apologize for that."
A judge granted Zimmerman bail for $150,000 on Friday and he was seen walking out of a Seminal County jail.
Zimmerman’s location is being kept secret as he awaits trial for the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin.
