George Zimmerman Back in Jail For Falsely Representing Finances
George Zimmerman, accused killer of Trayvon Martin, is back in jail after a judge revoked his bail over questions about his finances.
At a hearing on Friday, June 1st, Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester said that George Zimmerman had falsely represented his financial state when the $150,000 bond amount was granted. In April, Zimmerman’s wife testified that they had limited funds. It was later discovered that the defendant had raised more than $200,000 from a website setup gather contributions to support his defense.
Prosecutor Berne de la Rionda said, “The court was led to believe the Zimmerman’s didn’t have a single penny. It was misleading, and I don’t know what words to use other than it was a blatant lie.”
Prosecutors also accused Zimmerman on Friday of owning two passports and failing to surrender the second one. However, the judge dismissed the passport issue.
