Zimmerman's Bail Revoked by Judge...

The Miami Herald - George Zimmerman was ordered back to jail on Friday for misleading the court at his bond hearing about his finances.

Seminole County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester revoked the bail for Zimmerman — who is facing a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin of Miami Gardens — after finding that Zimmerman and his wife concealed their access to a $200,000 account during a bail hearing in April.

Zimmerman, who was not present at Friday’s hearing, now must surrender to Seminole County sheriff’s deputies by Sunday afternoon.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, is accused of chasing down Trayvon in his gated community in Sanford and then shooting him after a scuffle on Feb. 26. Prosecutors argue that Zimmerman went after Trayvon, who was walking to his father’s apartment, because he wrongly assumed the teen was about to commit a crime. Zimmerman told police he acted in self-defense, after Trayvon attacked him and slammed his head on the sidewalk.

Zimmerman, 28, was charged with second-degree murder in April by a special prosecutor after weeks of public outcry. In the days before Zimmerman’s arrest, a website was set up in his name proclaiming his innocence and soliciting donations for his defense. The PayPal account from the website collected $204,000. {Read More}

Reasonable precaution or political calculation?

  1. At this point, definitely political calculation. This man has definitely become some sort of football in the echelons of those who make test cases for the Elite.

  2. "Reasonable precaution or political calculation?"
    Lying to a judge under oath is a crime.
    He'll be back in jail where he belongs.
    You only give two options, both of which are wrong.
    The judge is following the law.

    1. Okay then griper, the right option is? I only posed the question. Feel free to fill in with your wisdom.

  3. It looks to be bad lawyering on his defense's part.

  4. This is the first piece of good news (in so much there can ever be good news in a murder scenario) that the prosecution has had in quite a while. Most of the previous pieces of information seemed to have been helping the defense. We're just going to have to continue staying tuned, I'm guessing.
