SANFORD, FL – When the Sanford jury announced their not guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, the backlash began.

Many people around the country felt justice had not been served for Trayvon Martin and that it was Zimmerman who dodged a bullet. It seems Zimmerman’s not done with Florida’s legal system just yet, however.

His legal team says they plan to ask the state to pay between $200,000 and $300,000 for his legal expenses, to cover the costs of expert witnesses, travel expenses and transcript fees during his murder trial. While legally Florida law allows an acquitted defendant to ask for the court to pay some of the case costs some people feel like Zimmerman’s request is in bad taste.

No matter how you feel about the verdict, George recently stopped driving through Texas, headed nowhere in particular?

Makes you wonder if his bank account really is running on empty?
