The attorney for George Zimmerman said he didn’t know his client had raised $200,000 before a bond hearing last week.
Mark O’Mara told the judge Friday that Zimmerman’s family hadn’t informed him about the money before his client was granted $150,000 bond.
Florida Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said he wanted to know more information about the money and what Zimmerman knew before deciding whether to revoke or raise his bond. He said he would to that at a hearing after O’Mara gathers the information.
Zimmerman is accused of second-degree murder for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The case has drawn national attention because Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer when he shot Martin, who was unarmed.
