Statement from State Attorney Norm Wolfinger




The Eighteenth Judicial Circuit State Attorney's Office in Sanford, Florida, on this date received an investigation case package from the Sanford Police Department concerning facts and circumstances surrounding the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.




State Attorney Norm Wolfinger recognizes that Trayvon Martin and his family, interested persons, and the public-at-large are entitled to no less than a through, deliberate and just review of the information provided, along with any other evidence that may or may not be developed in the course of the review process. We intend to honor that commitment.




Just how long that process will take is subject to many factors and setting a specific completion date at this time would be mere speculation. As with any proper investigation, information will not be released until it becomes public record under the laws of Florida.




The concern shown through email and other correspondence is expected and appreciated, but please understand that charging decisions will be based on the law and the evidence and that we will invest our time in the investigation and not replying to individual emails.
