Florida judge ordered that George Zimmerman turn himself back in after authorities discovered Zimmerman had a second passport in his possession he didn’t tell them about, and that he and his wife lied about being nearly penniless despite raising around $200,000 from a website. The former neighborhood watchman had been free on a $150,000 bond for a second degree murder charge, but after he was heard in recorded jailhouse conversations telling his wife how to move the money so it couldn’t be detected the judge now says he has 48 hours to report to jail.
Zimmerman was arrested 44 days after the killing. During a bail hearing in April, his wife, Shellie, testified that the couple had limited funds available. The hearing also was notable because Zimmerman took the stand and apologized to Martin’s parents.
Prosecutors pointed out in their motion that Zimmerman had $135,000 available then. It had been raised from donations through a website he set up, and they suggested more has been collected since and deposited in a bank account.
Shellie Zimmerman was asked about the website at the hearing, but she said she didn’t know how much money had been raised. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set bail at $150,000. Zimmerman was freed a few days later after posting $15,000 in cash, which is typical. He has been in hiding since.
All I can say is Karma is working!!
