Zimmerman Free on Bail Trayvon Martin's shooter easily covers higher bond By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Jul 6, 2012 2:16 PM CDT 9 comments Comments In this June 29 photo, George Zimmerman and attorney Don West appear at a bond hearing. (AP Photo/Orlando Sentinel, Joe Burbank, Pool) (Newser) – George Zimmerman is once again a free man after posting bail. Trayvon Martin's shooter walked out of jail in Florida a day after a judge raised his bond to $1 million, reports CNN. Given that Zimmerman had more than $200,000 in his defense fund at that point, well more than the standard 10% required, it was no surprise he walked today. In fact, the defense fund has taken in another $20,000 in donations since yesterday, notes the Orlando Sentinel.
