George Zimmerman, the admitted killer of unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin, is on his way back to jail. Judge Lester has revoked his bond and the defendant, charged with 2nd degree murder, has 48 hours to turn himself in.
Reasons for the bond revocation include George and Shelley Zimmerman “lieing” about how much money they had available to them during the original bond hearing, and Zimmerman’s non-compliance with turning in his current passport.
Mrs. Zimmerman testified that she and George were nearly indigent, when she completely aware of funds raised on George Zimmerman’s website through a Paypal account. Mrs. Zimmerman actually transferred those funds from the Paypal account to their credit union account prior to the bond hearing. It is reported that the Zimmerman’s had at least $138,000.00 available to them at that time.
George Zimmerman did surrender an expired passport, however, he had another passport issued to himself that does not expire until 2014. Judge Lester is reported to be furious about being lied to in court. George Zimmerman’s credibility is severely strained and he has been ordered to return to jail.
Attorney’s for the family of Trayvon Martin are confident about this new turn of events, and hopeful that George Zimmerman will receive full punishment under the letter of the law. There has been no mention of any pending charges against Mrs. Zimmerman for perjury.
