SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman is getting out of jail. Now his defense team has to worry about keeping the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of gunning down Trayvon Martin safe on the outside.
Defense attorneys for other high-profile clients who awaited trial on bail had advice for how to protect Zimmerman, whose shooting of the unarmed black 17-year-old sparked nationwide protests. They say he should leave Florida, avoid going out in public and never be left alone.
New York attorney Barry Slotnick represented subway shooter Bernhard Goetz in the 1980s. He says Zimmerman will put himself in harm's way unless he takes precautions.
Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, says Zimmerman probably won't be out of jail for at least a couple of days. He has not said where Zimmerman will go once he's released.
