Trayvon Martin Killing Lead Prosecutor Says Zimmerman Can Walk!

The nationwide clamor for an arrest notwithstanding, the lead prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case tells ABC News that convicting his killer, the neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, could prove difficult.

"The stand-your-ground law is one portion of justifiable use of deadly force," veteran State Attorney Angela Corey said. "And what that means is that the state must go forward and be able to prove it's case beyond a reasonable doubt… So it makes the case in general more difficult than a normal criminal case."

Zimmerman shot Martin dead the night of Feb. 26, after following him for several minutes. Zimmerman told police Martin looked suspicious because he was wearing a hoodie, and when he confronted him the two fought -- ultimately resulting in a single bullet in Martin's chest.

Trayvon Martin Case: Timeline of Events

Zimmerman claimed self defense all along, and this weekend the lawyer counseling him, Craig Sonner, told ABC News that he was likely to invoke Florida's controversial stand-your-ground law in his defense.

The law affords people enormous leeway to use deadly force if they feel their life is seriously endangered. Sonner said Zimmerman felt "one of them was going to die that night," when he pulled the trigger.

Corey, a veteran prosecutor known for her zealous defense of victims rights was hand-picked by Florida Gov. Rick Scott for the job. But she faces other challenges in the case.

While in life Trayvon Martin was barely 17, when it comes to justifiable homicide his size -- about 6-foot-3 and 150 pounds -- makes him an adult in death.

But with the Department of Justice and the FBI investigating this case as a possible hate crime, Corey might want to pursue that as well.

"So it would depend on which charge if any we're able to file," she said. "Before we would be able to determine, one, if this is a hate crime, and two, whether or not that would enhance the crime."

Corey's team is now reinvestigating a case that the Sanford Police Department is accused of bungling. Possible police missteps include failing to administer a toxicology exam on Zimmerman, not impounding his car, and failing to contact key witnesses -- like Martin's girlfriend, who was talking to the teen by cell phone and heard most of the scuffle with Zimmerman unfold.

ABC News has learned there is tremendous pressure from local and state authorities for an arrest.

Corey said parts of the investigation might only take a few more days to complete but charges, if they ever come, could be weeks away.

I guess these clowns don't remember the L.A. riots in the 90's. May have to refresh their memories if this muthafucka walks!

    What the hell? you gonna actually rely on our federal government to do the right thing? - they can't even keep track of weapons that end up killing our own citizens...WOW talk about living in a state of denial...the DOJ....talk about incomKpetence.

    He prefaced talk of feds with INCOMPETENT LOCAL PD. Where's ur slanted opinion on that topic? We're talking COVER UP here. U know that.



    There's enough of that incompetence to go around - & this current administration is the epitome of said incompetence...President Obama has allowed himself to get caught up in issues he should leave to those who know how to handle matters like this. Seriously he isn't organizing anything other than his own agenda to get re-elected by any means necessary.
    isn't that what everyone does to get re-elected? There was no administration more incompetent than Bush after all he let 9/11 happened when he was informed that Bin Laden was planning an attack on America.

    He spoke on it, said what he had to say and I bet people still won't be happy.

    I'm actually satisfied he finally said something. If he could comment on a white girl being called a slut by Limbaugh, than he should speak on a national story like this. I give Obama credit for his statement.

    Words are cheap One, true that, but it's a start that the feds are TRULY taking note of this. Republican candidates spoke out on the case before Obama did, I found that very surprising. Rick Santorum even said the cops in the case should be prosecuting Zimmerman. With that being said, I'm still not very optimistic on this case. I have a strange feeling the racist cops in Sanford Florida are gonna cover their ass and find a way to railroad this investigation.

    I sincerely hope I'm being paranoid, but the feds are taking their sweet ass time with this case. I'm not optimistic Zimmerman will be brought to justice. The racism in Florida might just be too strong.
