George Zimmerman Pleads Not Guilty To Trayvon MartinMurder Charges

George Zimmerman was a no-show in a Florida court today as his lawyer entered a plea of not guilty to second degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

His expected absence came as Zimmerman's attorney waived his right to a speedy trial, saying he "needs additional time to prepare" for the high-profile case.

In Florida, a defendant is entitled a trial within 175 days of being charged, but Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara has told ABC News he would try to prolong the process to allow racial tensions and the emotion associated with the case to subside.
It's all a game to the media. Make it look like he's a no-show GASP and then oh he didn't have to be there.
