The judge in Sanford, Florida has announced this morning that Zimmerman’s new bond will be in the amount of $1 Million.
This second bond amount has stemmed from his earlier bond ($150,000) was revoked following information that Zimmerman and his wife mislead the Court as to their financial stability.
Last week the judge hearing arguments from both sides of the case. The prosecution pushing for no bond because Zimmerman had lied to the Court and therefore, could not be trusted. On the other side, the Defense, argued Zimmerman’s self-defense claim is strong whereas the prosecution’s case is weak.
However, the judge decided to grant Zimmerman a bond of $1 Million even with the States arguments that Zimmerman is untrustworthy.
