George Zimmerman support website raised $200K; Trayvon’s family wants bail revoked

KABC | April 27, 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. — The attorney for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager in Florida, is set to reveal in court Friday that a website has raised $200,000 for his client’s defense.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

His attorney, Mark O’Mara, said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that he only learned about the money Wednesday and will inform a judge at a hearing Friday.

Zimmerman, 28, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was released from jail this week after paying 10 percent of his $150,000 bail.

Martin was walking back to the home of his father’s fiancé when Zimmerman saw him, called 911 and began following him. Investigators said a fight broke out, but it’s unclear who started it.

Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Martin’s parents, said Friday that he asked the prosecutor in the case to request that the judge revoke Zimmerman’s bail for not disclosing at the original bond hearing last week how much money he had.

Crump said the parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, were “offended” that Zimmerman failed to inform the court of the money the website raised.
