I am not an expert on the legal system, even though I went to law school for one semester....but it's my understanding that in this country, every person is entitled to legal counsel, and if they cannot afford counsel, than it shall be provided to them free of charge,,,,usually by public defender. So Zimmerman should be asked to pay what he can legally afford to pay. He is not totally destitute, from my understanding, but I doubt he can pay back $300K in legal fees. Also, he probably couldn't get a job as a dog catcher right now. Often you see high priced lawyers doing pro bono work and they don't expect to be reimbursed for helping a client, so maybe his defense team should just eat the costs? They can write a book like Darden and Marsha Clark did during the OJ trial...but they were part of the prosecution....and they really F'ed it up.
