George Zimmerman To Be Charged In Trayvon Martin Case
Criminal charges will be announced late Wednesday.
The nature of the charges wasn’t immediately known, the official told NBC News Justice Department correspondent Pete Williams, speaking on condition of anonymity. But because Angela Corey — the special prosecutor appointed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott to re-examine the case — previously announced that she wouldn’t take the case to a grand jury, first-degree murder is not an option.
Corey’s office confirmed that a news conference would be at 6 p.m. ET in Jacksonville, Fla.
