The attorney for George Zimmerman plans to ask a judge as early as Thursday to allow the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing an unarmed, black teen to post bond — though he believes it will be difficult.

“My hope is that the judge will grant a bond, and that it’ll be a bond that the family can make,” attorney Mark O’Mara said Wednesday. “They are not a family of means.”

Also, if a judge requires Zimmerman to remain in the area if he is granted bail, that will be difficult, O’Mara added.

“I think nobody would deny the fact if George Zimmerman is walking down the street today, he would be at risk,” he explained.
