George Zimmerman had his bond revoked today by a Florida judge and ordered him to surrender himself to authorities within the 48 hours.
Prosecutors filed a motion to revoke the bond of the neighborhood watch volunteer who was charged with second degree murder in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. It was determined that Zimmerman deceived the court about his finances, said Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr., accusing Zimmerman of engaging in “material falsehood” about money in issuing his ruling.
About an hour before the ruling came, prosecutors in the second-degree murder case again Zimmerman had filed a new motion requesting the bond revocation.They contended Zimmerman’s wife knew about the donations he had collected through a PayPal account, but didn’t mention the money at his bond hearing.
Zimmerman’s PayPal account collected more than $200,000, his attorney later revealed. “Defendant has intentionally deceived the court with the assistance of his wife, Shelley Zimmerman. During the jail phone calls both of them spoke in code to hide what they were doing,” the motion read.
