Zimmerman will Ask State to Pay Some Bills

ORLANDO, Fla A spokesman for attorney Mark O'Mara confirmed Tuesday that the lawyer plans to ask the state of Florida to pick up the bill for as much as $300,000 in expenses.
State law allows defendants to get their legal expenses reimbursed by the state if they are acquitted.
Zimmerman was acquitted last month of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The acquittal touched off protests nationwide.
Some of the costs that could be reimbursed include expert witnesses, depositions and an animated video depicting Zimmerman's account of what happened during his fight with Martin last year.
