JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The state attorney who oversaw the prosecution of George Zimmerman says she 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.
