The Orlando attorney who successfully represented George Zimmerman in this summer's high-profile murder trial isn't getting involved in his client's new controversies.
Mark O'Mara will not handle Zimmerman's divorce or any criminal charges related to Monday's domestic violence complaint, O'Mara spokesman Shawn Vincent confirmed today.
He will continue to push for sanctions against prosecutors from Angela Corey's office, which filed a second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman for the February 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Vincent said.
Zimmerman was found not guilty July 13.
O'Mara also remains an attorney of record for Zimmerman's pending libel suit against NBC Universal Media LLC but not as lead counsel.
"I am not representing George Zimmerman in his recent domestic altercation case or his impending divorce case," O'Mara told CNN.
Zimmerman filed suit against NBC in December, alleging that NBC and its Miami affiliate, WTVJ, falsely portrayed him as a racist in five reports.
Several involved the way NBC employees edited a now-famous police dispatch recording from the night he shot Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman had called police, describing Trayvon, who was unarmed and had no criminal record, as suspicious.
In the NBC edit of that recording, station or network employees deleted a portion, making it appear as if Zimmerman volunteered that the suspicious figure he saw was black.
In truth, he gave that description after the dispatcher asked for Trayvon's race.
The suit also faults the media company for broadcasting a report in which it said Zimmerman used a racial epithet while on the phone with the dispatcher.
Two of the reporters named individually in the suit have been fired.
Meanwhile, George Zimmerman's wife filed for divorce Thursday, less than two months after the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer was acquitted of murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Shellie Zimmerman said they separated Aug. 13.
Shellie Zimmerman hinted about the breakup in interviews last week on ABC News and "Good Morning America."
When asked about the future of their relationship and whether they were still together, she said, "I'm not going to answer that."
"Of course, I want to have children and stay married..." Shellie Zimmerman said.
"With George?" freelance journalist Christi O'Connor asked.
"That's something I'm going to have to think about," Shellie Zimmerman responded.
On Monday, George Zimmerman was briefly detained after a dispute involving Shellie and her father, David Bryant Dean, at a Lake Mary home.
A police investigation is ongoing.
