Today a judge will decide whether to set George Zimmerman free until his trial for killing Trayvon Martin.
Legal experts tell AP when it comes to the question of whether to allow bail, there is a lot weighing in Zimmerman's favor. He was never convicted of a crime before, he has ties to the local community and he's not considered a flight risk, since he turned himself in last week after he was charged with second-degree murder.
"Although it's not routine for people charged with murder to get bond, they do get bond, and I think there is an excellent argument to be made in his specific case for him to be released on bond," said defense attorney Randy McClean, who practices in Seminole County, about 15 miles northeast of Orlando.
But the two main issues at hand are: would he be allowed to leave the U.S. and how would he stay safe.
Public scrutiny of the Zimmerman-Martin case is intense. And The New Black Panther Party put a $10,000 bounty out to capture Zimmerman.
