George Zimmerman, accused of and charged with the murder of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is back in jail after the bond posted for his release was revoked. According to CNN television, Zimmerman met with sheriff’s deputies without incident, and 45-minutes before the 48-hour return-to-jail deadline was up.
The problem rests on claims that his wife Shellie Zimmerman misrepresented their income levels, causing the court to believe they were flat broke, when a special website setup for his legal defense funds raised an estimated $200,000. There was also concerns related to George Zimmerman’s passport, where prosecutors said he had two of them, and not just the one that was turned in to the court.
