Judge in neighborhood watch case won't step down
SANFORD, Fla. – A central Florida judge says he's staying on the case of a neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing an unarmed teenager.
In a Wednesday ruling, Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester denied a motion by George Zimmerman's defense attorney to disqualify himself because of disparaging remarks he made during a bond hearing.
Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, filed the motion after the July 5 bond hearing during which Lester questioned Zimmerman's honesty and suggested he plotted to leave the country.
