Circuit judge Kenneth Lester decided that he needed time to think about whether he should grant George Zimmerman’s second request for bond, and today Zimmerman’s bond was set at $1 million dollars. Lester revoked Zimmerman’s $150,000 bond a month ago after the prosecution revealed that he and his wife, Shellie, had deceived the court about their financial situation.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, asked for a $150,000 bond last week, while the state of Florida asked that he remain in bars with no bond. O’Mara claimed that Zimmerman was no threat to the community, and argued that he was not a flight risk because he returned to jail promptly after his bond was revoked.
Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder for killing Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., back in February. Considering the blow to Zimmerman's credibility, do you think it's fair for him to be granted bond?
