With the 10% cash payment customarily made to secure bond, Zimmerman could be freed with $15,000 from his family, attorneys said.
He will likely remain in jail for at least a couple of days while his attorneys and authorities work out terms of his release, which also include electronic monitoring and other restrictions, O’Mara said.
The judge told O’Mara to talk to authorities about his request to allow Zimmerman to leave Florida while awaiting trial. O’Mara said he is concerned about threats to Zimmerman’s safety, as well as that of his family.
De la Rionda said no decision has been made on whether to allow Zimmerman to leave the state.

In spite of the ‘jumping to conclusions’ of
rag-tag organizations and special interests,
it’s going to be enlightening to ultimately
get to the truth of the facts in this case.
The actual time line, the details of the
trajectory, the testimony of witnesses, the
factors surrounding the event, and the
intents of the participants will trump all
guessing games now in play.
Ok. Here are a few things that bothered me inside the courtroom that day:
1. Did Zimmerman really need to be in body chains? No. Ridiculous. Again, this Man is not a mass Murderer. I still believe the charges should be negligence or Manslaughter. NOT MURDER.
2. Also bail very high. In addition, the Attorney for Martin’s family or whoever that idiot was was being a jerkoff picking apart GZ’s apology to the family. He was advised by his former Council NOT to have any contact with them.
Everyone is overreacting, and now it’s as if NOTHING is harsh enough for this Man in light of all the divisive play up on the drama and BS in the media.
An accidental death gone wrong, does not make Zimmerman a PREMEDIATED MURDERER. Even the most conservative agree Zimmerman over did it with the Self- appointed Barbey Fife of the Neighborhood watch, but this does not make him an evil being with a premonition of knowing he was going to go out and slaughter a Teenager that night. That is NOT how it went down!
No one knows all the facts from the beginning. Zimmerman did have injuries. Any person DOES have a right to protect themselves. IMOO, GZ panicked and pulled that gun erroneously because Martin was attacking GZ since he was afraid also he knew he was being followed. You can’t blame Trayvon Martin for being afraid either.
Race Baiters need to put a lid on it, and those that are over-zealous need to cease from desiring that Zimmerman gets burnt at the stake for cryin’ out loud.
How is Zimmerman EVER going to get a fair trial? How are the Martin’s ever going to get closure?
This whole case is again, another mockery of our Justice System that those in the business on either side of the aisle are behaving like this.
The calmest ones I see, are Zimmerman himself and Martin’s Parents. The rest of the side show involved are making me head to my closet for the Nerf Ball so I can whip it at the TV screen again!
