FL Shooting Judge Discloses Possible Conflict

April 13, 2012

Florida Judge Jessica Recksiedler held a previously unscheduled status conference today in the Trayvon Martin shooting case to reveal a possible conflict of interest involving her husband and the lawyer who recommended defense attorney Mark O’Mara to defendant George Zimmerman.

She asked for motions to be filed next week so she can address them at an April 20 bond hearing, at which time O’Mara’s office has said Zimmerman will seek release on his own recognizance while he awaits trial on murder charges.
