A spokeswoman for Angela Corey’s office didn’t immediately respond to an email and two phone calls requesting comment.

Zimmerman is at the center of an investigation over the shooting of Trayvon Martin, 17. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense after following him in a gated community in Sanford on Feb. 26.

Martin, who was unarmed, was black. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic.
