Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Mark O’Mara for a candid and revealing exclusive interview, touching upon the state of George Zimmerman, both financially, and emotionally.
Four days after posting bail, O'Mara opens about having to solicit donations for his client's defense strategy:
"I'm a bit conflicted by it, to be honest. We're trying to deal with the reality that George does not have any funds of his own," he tells Piers Morgan. "He can only get those funds from his supporters."
Noting that the situation is rather unique, Zimmerman's defense attorney explains how the case's overwhelming price tag left him little choice:
"It was a decision, that we were sort of put in the position of having to do, because of the bond amount," he says. "In the past, I had never really asked for money on George's behalf. And though we had the defense fund active, we never really pushed it. The reality is, however, that with a one million dollar bond, and a one hundred thousand fee to get that bond done, we can not do it without support from George's supporters."
Watch the clip, listen to the interview, and tune in tonight as O'Mara lays out the timeline for the next stages of the case.
