State attorney Corey says she doesn't read news

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The state attorney who oversaw the prosecution of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin says she doesn't read newspapers and doesn't think the public should know any details about a criminal case until it goes to a jury.

Angela Corey of the Jacksonville-based 4th Circuit Court discussed her news preferences and her opinions on Florida's open-government laws during an address Friday to the First Coast Tiger Bay Club.

Corey said she doesn't read any newspapers. She also said, "My people tell me what I need to know."

Corey also said the media should not be allowed to report on high-profile cases because they can publish details never heard by a jury.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Corey declined to speak with reporters after the event.
