George Zimmerman Has Surrendered to Authorities and Back in Jail After Judge Revokes Bond … Seeks New Bond Hearing (VIDEO)
Back behind bars as bond revoked …
George Zimmerman surrendered himself on Sunday to Florida authorities and is back in a Seminole County jail after a judge had revoked his bail. Zimmerman returned ‘quiet and cooperative’. Seminole County Sheriff Donald Eslinger said Zimmerman turned himself in to two sheriff’s office employees around 1:25 p.m. near the jail. He was then brought to the jail in a white minivan. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester had revoked George Zimerman’s bond in the second degree murder shooting death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin because Zimmerman and his wife had mislead the court regarding their finances.

Wearing a button-down checkered shirt, blue jeans and sneakers, a handcuffed Zimmerman was escorted by two deputy sheriffs from a white minivan into the Seminole County jail Sunday afternoon. He did not answer shouted questions from reporters as he was led inside the jail to be booked, photographed and processed.
George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, is expected to file a motion Monday seeking a new bond hearing for Trayvon Martin.
“He is in custody now,” O’Mara said of Zimmerman, 28. “He’s going to remain there until we get back before Judge Lester if and when he grants us a bond hearing. It sounded like he might consider it. But that is going to be based upon the motion itself.”
O’Mara went on to say Sunday that he thinks the defense “explanation, or apology if it is, should go directly to the person who deserves it, in this case that is Judge Lester.”
“Again, (we are) just hoping that the judge will give us an audience so we can further explain away why what happened seems to have happened,” O’Mara said.
