In what may be to some a shocking decision, Florida Judge Kenneth Lester does not believe George Zimmerman is a threat to the community and set his bail at $1Million.
This court does not fear that the defendant would pose a threat to others in the community if released.”
In the past month, this is the second time that Judge Lester has given Zimmerman the opportunity to post bail. If he posts 10%, he is free to go, but the Judge has not forgotten about all of the lying- withholding a second passport, as well as having a large bank account.
By any definition, the defendant has flaunted the system.”
Zimmerman must check in with in the Florida pre-trial release department every 48 hours, not drink alcohol, and not contact Trayon Martin’s family. He must stay away from the airport and cannot leave Seminole County, as he will be wearing electronic monitoring.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26th. It is unclear if he will be able to post the money.
