George Zimmerman's Next Court Date Is on Trayvon Martin's 18th Birthday

The next court hearing for Geore Zimmerman was supposed to be next week, on January 8, but the judge in charge of the case decided that the hearing wasn't necessary, so she rescheduled Zimmerman's next court appearance to an eerily significant date.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson delayed Zimmerman's next hearing until February 5, a date that the young man Zimmerman is accused of killing most certainly would have had marked in his calender. February 5, 2013 would have been Trayvon Martin's 18th birthday. Zimmerman is still out on GPS monitoring, but walking freely, on $1 million bond while he awaits trial in June.
