( 4UMF NEWS ) Zimmerman Back In Jail:
The accused killer of Trayvon Martin was back behind bars Friday after making his case for freedom.
Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester, who revoked Zimmerman’s $150,000 bond earlier this month, gave no clue as to when his ruling might come down.
Zimmerman did not testify at Friday’s hearing, although the defense produced a financial forensic specialist to show that the couple did not try to hide any money.
“It is not the grand conspiracy the state seems to suggest,” said defense lawyer Mark O’Mara.
But prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda noted that much of the money donated to a PayPal account was shuffled between Zimmerman family bank accounts.
“It was done to hide the money so they could deceive the court, lie to the court,” he said. “Mrs. Zimmerman lied to the court and this defendant just sat there and let it happen.”
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old inside a gated Florida community on Feb. 26. The suspect pleaded not guilty, insisting he shot Martin in self-defense.
His wife, Shellie, was charged with perjury for her testimony at the April bond hearing, and released on $1,000 bond. She is due back in court on July 31
