“SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman has returned to Florida and will turn himself in to authorities by Sunday’s deadline after a judge revoked his bond in the Trayvon Martin case, an attorney said.

Attorney Mark O’Mara announced Zimmerman’s return on his website Sunday, saying Zimmerman arrived late Saturday evening. Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin, was ordered by a judge Friday to return to jail.

The press release on the website said the deadline for his surrender is 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The judge revoked Zimmerman’s bond, suggesting he and his wife had not been honest about their finances. During a bond hearing in April, the couple had indicated they had limited funds. But prosecutors say Zimmerman had raised thousands through a website he had set up for his legal defense.

Zimmerman’s legal team said Sunday that they will ask for a new bond hearing to address those concerns, and that they hope Zimmerman’s voluntary surrender will show he is not a flight risk. Furthermore, the money Zimmerman has raised is in an independent trust and cannot be directly accessed by Zimmerman or his attorneys, according to the press release.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to the second-degree murder charge. He maintains he shot Martin in self-defense under Florida’s so-called “stand your ground” law because the teen, who was unarmed, was beating him up after confronting Zimmerman about following him in a gated community outside Orlando.

Zimmerman’s credibility could become an issue at trial, legal experts said, noting the case hinges on jurors believing Zimmerman’s account of what happened the night in February that Martin was killed.”

Guys, I don’t believe anything the news tells me, except the time and date. But let me ask a serious question…

If Mr. Zimmerman was a black man who LIED about his finances, wouldn’t his credibility be destroyed from the moment everyone found out he lied? Honest answers folks…

    You hit the nail on the head, I wanted to send you a reply about this on friday, But I thought i was being off topic, but if Zimmerman was African American he would have been publicly lynched media wise. But this just goes to show you about White priviledge. Just my thoughts.

  2. Mary, white privilege or the association of white privilege does have its benefits.

    Not only that Zimmerman would not have such a low bail.

    Nothing but benefits. Unbelievable the efforts made to create empathy for him. Ugh!

  5. poor Zimmerman. Not so long ago he would have been awarded with a medal of honour. I mean, imagine that youngster thought about conceiving entertaining the noion of possibly, one day, eventually, and gradaully, doing something terrible to Zimmerman. Then what???

  6. Zimmy’s facade is unraveling and quick! If he gets off, I fear a riot.
