ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - George Zimmerman's defense fund is almost depleted with less than two weeks until the former neighborhood watch leader goes on trial for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman's attorneys posted on their website Wednesday that the defense fund had less than $5,000 left. The fund had almost $315,000 back in January.
His attorneys are calculating that Zimmerman needs another $120,000 to put on a good defense, or even another $75,000 to give him a fighting chance.
His attorneys, Mark O'Mara and Don West, say they haven't been paid a cent and many interns are working on the case without pay.
They say they will need the money in the coming weeks to pay experts and for transcripts of depositions.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty.
