Judge Rejects Bail Hike for Zimmerman
April 30, 2012
The judge overseeing the murder trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin has rejected a prosecution request to raise Zimmermanís bail. Prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda asked for the increase on Friday after Zimmermanís attorney disclosed his client had raised more than $200,000 through his now de-funct website.
Bernardo de la Rionda: "The family members represented that they had no money when in truth they really did. I donít know if they did it intentionally or what but so I would submit that there is a change in circumstances regarding bond and I would ask the court to consider possibly raising bond."
The $200,000 raised by Zimmerman exceeds the $150,000 bail he was freed on last week. But on Friday, Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester refused to raise Zimmermanís bail, saying he needed more financial information on Zimmermanís fundraising before making a ruling.
