George Zimmerman Could Be Granted Bond Again At Hearing In Late June
Zimmerman was ordered back into custody by Judge Kenneth Lester after the prosecution presented evidence that some money had not been disclosed in the original hearing. The money in question is funds that were raised on a website to help in the legal battles ahead for Zimmerman. The state showed that both Zimmerman and his wife were aware of the money prior to the hearing, that was set to request a low bond for the accused. A lower than normal bond was granted with conditions set by the judge. However, with the new evidence of funds not disclosed, Judge Lester ordered Zimmerman back to jail and revoked his bond.
Zimmerman surrendered to authorities on June 3, and was booked back into the Seminole County Florida Jail. He is being held with no bond. Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara stated that his client forgot to mention the funds because he was scared during the hearing. He states that his client did not intentionally withhold the information.
O’Mara filed a motion for a hearing in front of the judge for a new bond, however due to scheduling with the judge and the other attorneys, the hearing will not be held until June 29. Until then, Zimmerman will be held at the jail without a bond.
