Zimmerman Post Bond For Second Time
SANFORD, FL. (CNN) – George Zimmerman is out on bond again. Here you can see him leaving a Florida jail earlier today (Friday). On Thursday, a judge set his bond at a million dollars, saying he thought Zimmerman might be a flight risk.
Zimmerman had to post 100-thousand-dollars to be freed. But he also had to prove he had a million dollars in collateral.
After he was taken into custody in April, Zimmerman originally got out on 150-thousand-dollars bail.
But the judge put him behind bars again last month after determining he and his wife had lied about how much money they had.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
He has pleaded not guilty, and says he shot the unarmed Florida teen in self-defense in February.
