Trayvon Martin: Sanford Police Chief Resigns, Pending City Approval

Bill Lee, the Sanford, Florida Chief of Police, has submitted an offer of resignation. Lee faced tough questions after he refused to charge George Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin.  Lee temporarily stepped down from his position after protests started and the Florida State Police took over the investigation. Also, the City Commissioners previously issued a no-confidence vote.

Lee's resignation requires a vote of the City Commissioners. The offer of resignation could include some discussion of retirement, benefits, severance or even clearance of wrongdoing (though that seems premature), which would normally require authorization from the city.
