Zimmerman to be charged.

According to Fox News, the special prosecutor will be announcing charges soon.

I have to ask why the the evidence was not put before a grand jury.  To me it makes the charges look politically motivated.  I'm interested whether Zimmerman will plea out, or if he'll go to trial.  If the evidence is so slim the prosecutor was afraid to put it before a grand jury I would think he would choose to go to trial, but that's an expensive proposition.

ETA:  So, the special prosecutor bringing the charges is up for re-election in November.

Mr. Zimmerman might be acquitted of the state charge but he is also looking at federal charges too. They will probably throw every single (state and fed) charge they can at him and “see what sticks.” A best case scenario for him is that he will end up broke and looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.
