Sanford, Florida --  Attorneys representing the family of Trayvon Martin say they expect a decision this week by a the special prosecutor appointed to lead the investigation into the shooting death of the 17-year-old.

Duval State Attorney Angela Corey has three options:  drop the case, send the case to a grand jury to decide, or arrest George Zimmerman.

A group of 40 college students and alumni made a 40 mile march between Daytona and Sanford in a cry for justice for Trayvon Martin.

They are not only demanding an arrest of the neighborhood watchman, but a change in a judiciary system which they say is broken.

The students call themselves the Dream Defenders.  They say they are planning non-violent civil disobedience rallies in central Florida today.

Natalie Jackson, one of the attorneys representing the Martin family said they are optimistic a decision will come this week.

"She has a right to investigate thoroughly, but we do believe they have enough information to make a lawful arrest," said Jackson.

Zimmerman's attorneys appeared on CBS This Morning on Friday to defend their client.  They say he has been convicted by the public media and asked the public to take a step back before rushing to judgement because all of the evidence has yet to come out.
