Update: Trayvon Martin
The special prosecutor charged George Zimmerman a.k.a "the Killerman" with 2nd degree murder this past week. He was arrested and held at the Seminole County Jail.
Sanford, Florida (CNN) -- George Zimmerman's newly hired attorney told CNN's "AC360" on Friday that he didn't initially seek bond for his client because he first needed more time to become familiar with the case.
Mark O'Mara took on the case Wednesday, the same day Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was charged with second-degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
A bond hearing has been tentatively scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. April 20, O'Mara said.
"I think he's stressed. He's certainly nervous," O'Mara said of Zimmerman. "He is frustrated he was charged at all."
On Thursday, a Seminole County judge found probable cause to move forward with the case and set a May 29 arraignment.
Sanford's pastors, meanwhile, stepped forward to urge reconciliation.
