We just want justice!
The neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin could remain behind bars until the middle of next week due to concerns about collecting enough funds for his $150,000 bond, his lawyer said Saturday:
Attorney Mark O’Mara visited his client George Zimmerman in the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida on Saturday, a day after Seminole County Judge Kenneth R. Lester Jr. set the bond. Prosecutors had asked that Zimmerman remain in jail without bond until trial or that it be set at $1 million.
With the 10% cash payment customarily made to secure bond, Zimmerman could be freed with $15,000 from his family, attorneys said.
Speaking to reporters Saturday outside the jail, O’Mara said his client is “focused on getting out” while still aware this is “a long, long process.”
“This is the first few steps,” the lawyer said. “And he’s still very worried about the fact that he’s facing a life sentence on a 2nd-degree murder charge.”
Zimmerman could be back on the streets by early next week after his family and supporters pay the bond, do you think the bail was set too low? Will justice be served in this tragic case?
