George Zimmerman’s bond revoked; ordered to return to jail

The Washington Post is reporting that Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked the bond of the neighborhood watch volunteer
charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and ordered him returned
to jail within 48 hours.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said Friday that George Zimmerman
misled the court about how much money he had available when his bond was
set for $150,000 in April. Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000
available that had been raised by a website he set up.

Prosecutors also say he failed to surrender a second passport.

The defense says the finances are an innocent misunderstanding.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin and is claiming self-defense.
