George Zimmerman, the Florida man charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, is out of jail, but the task of keeping him safe is just beginning.

In an ABC News article published prior to Zimmerman's release, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Litigation shareholder Barry I. Slotnick explained Zimmerman "clearly puts himself in jeopardy unless he takes precautions" to ensure his safety.

Slotnick, who represented Bernhard Goetz in the 1984 "Subway Vigilante" case, said Zimmerman needs always to have someone at his side, in case a threat arises, and he should only associate with individuals he's known for a long time.

"He will not be forgotten," Slotnick said. "He will be recognized."
