George Zimmerman to stay in jail while judge decides whether to grant bail again
The accused killer of Trayvon Martin was back behind bars Friday after making
his case for freedom.
Lawyers for neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman
appealed Friday for his release on bond, only to have a Florida judge declare
that he needed more time to make a decision.
Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester, who revoked Zimmerman’s $150,000 bond
earlier this month, gave no clue as to when his ruling might come down.
Zimmerman was jailed after prosecutors claimed that he and his wife lied to
the court about their finances by failing to mention $135,000 in donations for
his legal defense fund.
Zimmerman did not testify at Friday’s hearing, although the defense produced
a financial forensic specialist to show that the couple did not try to hide any
“It is not the grand conspiracy the state seems to suggest,” said defense
lawyer Mark O’Mara.
But prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda noted that much of the money donated to a
PayPal account was shuffled between Zimmerman family bank accounts.
“It was done to hide the money so they could deceive the court, lie to the
court,” he said. “Mrs. Zimmerman lied to the court and this defendant just sat
there and let it happen.”
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting the unarmed
17-year-old inside a gated Florida community on Feb. 26. The suspect pleaded not
guilty, insisting he shot Martin in self-defense. More

Most prisoners listed on PrisonerPal.com have done years in prison without a pen pal, visits, or phone calls to the outside world, and they are desperately hoping this prison pen pal site will give them a chance to form a lasting friendship with someone willing to take the time to write a letter or two a week to let them know they have not been forgotten by the world they left behind.
Moreover, a prisoner's contact with the outside world is a positive factor, especially if that contact is with someone willing to encourage the male or female prisoner to assess their past life and bring about the change necessary for him or her to lead a productive existence when released. Why should you care? While some of the prison pen pals on this site are serving life sentences, or have been sentenced to die by gas or lethal injection, most will someday be released from prison to again live among us. Those prisoners may end up being your neighbor or fellow employee. PrisonerPal.com
