George Zimmerman‘s lawyer said that Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law does not apply in the Trayvon Martin case, CNN reports.
“In my legal opinion, that’s not really applicable to this case. The statute on ‘stand your ground’ is primarily when you’re in your house,” said Craig Sonner, attorney for George Zimmerman. In an exclusive interview with CNN, Craig Sonner addressed a wide range of issues ranging from accusations that Zimmerman is racist to whether or not he is even in the United States.
