5:44 pm - 04/11/2012
+NBC News confirms: George Zimmerman is in custody for charges related to the Trayvon Martin case. Prosecutor Angela Corey will make an announcement in Trayvon Martin case at 6 p.m. ET

Source at NBC News on G+, that's all I got right now.

I encourage everyone to post more detailed information and links as it becomes available. I'm about to be away from the internet for a few hours so I won't be able to add to this post myself.

edit: More detail here

LOL @ people acting like the national outcry had absolutely no influence on this whatsoever.
rex_dart 11th-Apr-2012 10:07 pm (UTC)
of course it had no bearing, justice is blind, the justice system loves do the right thing, etc. etc. etc.

"I will confirm that Mr. Zimmerman is indeed in custody." -- TV

you know, I think a big part it took so long is the prosecution wanted to make sure they had everything they needed before hand. Isn't that what a lot of people think happened with the Casey Anthony trial? I want to make sure they have every possible thing they need to put this guy behind bars.

I hope you're right. I'm too cynical about all of this but what you've said makes a certain amount of sense, so.

He is officially charged with murder in the second degree! First degree would have been nice...

first degree would have meant that he would have walked

FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
angry_chick 11th-Apr-2012 10:11 pm (UTC)
And, he's facing a minimum of 25 years. That's BULLSHIT.
thepuddingcook 11th-Apr-2012 10:16 pm (UTC)
if he is convicted. I'm still not convinced he'll be convicted bc of that bullshit stand your ground law. I have a relative in law enforcement who told me it's going to be really, really hard to get a conviction in this case because of that.

i do really like the way she is handling this. does she have a history with high profile cases?
schmanda 12th-Apr-2012 02:39 am (UTC)
I had just begun reading up on who she is, and hit upon her involvement in the Cristian Fernandez case. Aside from it being an overwhelmingly fucking depressing situation from the jump, I'll confess I'm not getting the most favorable impression of her so far.

Time will tell, I suppose. :\

Hallelujah! Finally!

About damn time. I hope this helps bring Trayvon's family some peace.
aisasami 11th-Apr-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
Let the battle begin.
teacup_werewolf 11th-Apr-2012 10:13 pm (UTC)
Maybe we can have justice finally.
lunchy 11th-Apr-2012 10:14 pm (UTC)
I do have to give the prosecutor credit for keeping the press conference professional. People are trying to get her to spill on details she can't disclose without jeopardizing the case, and she just keeps denying them.
pepsquad 12th-Apr-2012 03:27 am (UTC)
me too i sprinted to the TV room to watch that @ work! i have some hope that she will get to the bottom of this.
empirebird 11th-Apr-2012 10:14 pm (UTC)
I've only overheard the police tape once while my mother was in the next room watching television and I rushed to put my headphones on and felt nauseous and panicky. There's no way I can listen to it. I hope they warm people before they play it on television.
hammersxstrings 11th-Apr-2012 10:17 pm (UTC)
they don't, unfortunately. i'm happy they have it though; it's going to be great evidence, especially when they get the specialists in there to support that it is really Trayvon's voice.
