"Shellie Zimmerman was asked about the website at the hearing, but she said she didn't know how much money had been raised. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set bail at $150,000. The 28-year-old was freed a few days later after posting $15,000 in cash — which is typical."

This is what I don't understand, the prosecution, judge knew of this account at the bond hearing. Why didn't the judge require Shellie Zimmerman to check into then disclose $ in the account? I don't see that she lied,...she didn't try to hide the account.


This is interesting.......the prosecutor DID NOT read an accurate transcript to the judge to 'prove' she lied. Shelly offered to call her brother in law to give the judge the total accurate amount, yet strangely this was not in the transcript he read. Looks like the prosecutor lied to the judge!

Trayvon Martin case: George Zimmerman "quiet and cooperative" back in Fla. jail
Last Updated 9:27 a.m. ET

 ::snipping2::
The judge said Friday he would schedule a hearing after Zimmerman was back in custody so he could explain himself.

On "CBS This Morning" O'Mara told Charlie Rose that he believes the Zimmermans had made a mistake.

"I think it was out of fear, and maybe some frustration with having their lives turned completely upside-down and not having a good level of trust with anyone that they were dealing with. But I think they realize it was a mistake. They look forward to the opportunity to clearing that up with Judge Lester," O'Mara said.

O'Mara said the Zimmerman family must apologize for not being straightforward with the judge about the funds raised online for George Zimmerman's defense.

He denied that there was tension between himself and his client, but admitted Monday that "certainly there was some frustration with realizing that what was, I truly believe, an oversight, or at least a mistake that they made, has now truly come to bear on Mr. Zimmerman directly with his incarceration."

I don't get why they lied.  His own father is a judge and mom a court clerk and it just boggles my mind that he wasn't aware that his phone convo's from jail would be recorded.  Oh well.

Ok, I did go find the info/document the prosecution offered to in the bond revocation doc....they (the prosecution did LEAVE out the part from the 4/20 bond hearing where SZ offers the info about her BIL taking care of the a/c and even stated he could be reached by phone.........so, if this is such a huge issue why didn't they do that? And why leave that portion out during this last hearing? Did this dude work for NBC at one time 

Here is the link to the motion they prosecution filed:

If you read the transcripts that Corey's office gave to the judge compared to the actual transcripts of the page there are 4 very important lines missing why?  After she was asked if she knew a total amount she explains that the brother is in control of the account currently, she then begins to explain that she is willing to call him and get the proper information.  I do not get why this was left out of the transcripts given to the judge.  They wanted a total amount number, not for a second do I believe Shelly purposely meant to mislead the court, especially offering right at that moment to get a exact figure for the judge by calling the brother who was monitoring the account."

I agree but who knows in this case......ITA with everyone that he can't get a fair trial and again just from what we know now, I couldn't vote guilty. If Trayvon was on top of him beating him - I see a self defense argument, not a SYG defense but self defense would be my vote so not guilty (again that is from what we know now, and there could be something else out there I have no clue about).

George Zimmerman's Donations Spike on His Return to Jail
MIAMI June 4, 2012

Donations to the legal defense fund of George Zimmerman have surged since the accused killer of Miami teenager Trayvon Martin has been ordered back to jail, his lawyer told ABC News today.
 
Attorney Mark O'Mara said Zimmerman's online defense fund has been receiving about $1,000 a day in donations, but the pace picked up after a judge required Zimmerman to return to jail.
 
Zimmerman, 28, woke up today in a 9-foot by 7-foot isolation cell in the Seminole County jail today after surrendering Sunday. He was in shackles and wearing a bullet-proof vest after being taken into custody Sunday.
 
A judge ordered Zimmerman back into custody Friday after prosecutors presented jailhouse tapes of Zimmerman talking to his wife Shelly and allegedly discussing how much money was in his online defense fund. His wife told the court that they had no money to post for bail.
 
O'Mara said that he will seek a new bond hearing and that the couple intends to apologize to the judge.
 
"It's not again like they were trying to hide the money or leave with the money. They just had it... and felt like they needed to secure themselves," the lawyer said.
 
Zimmerman has about $193,000 in his defense fund, O'Mara said, and that about $20,000 has been spent on living expenses, hotels and security. Zimmerman has been in hiding because of death threats.
 
The amount of the money being donated has spiked since Friday when the judge ordered Zimmerman back to jail, O'Mara said.
 
When Zimmerman surrendered Sunday, his hair was longer and his face fleshier than when he was charged on April 11 with second degree murder in the death of the unarmed teenager.
 
His lawyer said that Zimmerman dreaded going back to jail. "He didn't like it when he was there … He's frustrated that he had to prove his own innocence."

Thanks Island...am going to have to figure out how to shorten these quote stacks!! 
This has bothered me from the initial bond hearing, wondered why no one asked about $s in the account.
And at that hearing Zs attorney mentioned something to the effect he hadn't spoken with Z prior to....shouldn't he have asked for a postponement in order to get all the info needed? If he had done that Z wouldn't be in the mess he is now??
And...what's with the prosecution lying by omission in the recent hearing?

Zimmerman atty: Family "made a mistake" with defense funds
June 4, 2012

(CBS News) George Zimmerman's attorney said the Zimmerman family must apologize for not being straightforward with the judge about the funds raised online for George Zimmerman's defense - a situation which led the judge to revoke the neighborhood watch volunteer's bond and order him back to jail.

Last Friday Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman's bond. The judge believed the man charged in the Trayvon Martin shooting, and his wife, had misled him by asking for a low bond - never mentioning their online defense fund had raised $135,000.

"He can't sit back and obtain the benefit of a lower bond or circumstances based upon those material falsehoods," Lester said.

On Sunday afternoon Zimmerman was escorted in handcuffs back into Seminole County's jail in Sanford. Described as "quiet and cooperative," he was booked and processed, and held on a no-bond basis, reports Mark Strassmann.

'It's a credibility question with Mr. Zimmerman," said Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara. "and now that credibility has been attacked or tarnished. And now he's going to have to rehabilitate it. And that's up to him."
 ::snipping2::
O'Mara denied that there was tension between himself and his client, but admitted Monday on "CBS This Morning" that "certainly there was some frustration with realizing that what was, I truly believe, an oversight, or at least a mistake that they made, has now truly come to bear on Mr. Zimmerman directly with his incarceration."

He told Charlie Rose that he believes the Zimmermans had made a mistake.

"I think it was out of fear, and maybe some frustration with having their lives turned completely upside-down and not having a good level of trust with anyone that they were dealing with. But I think they realize it was a mistake. They look forward to the opportunity to clearing that up with Judge Lester," O'Mara said.
When asked to explain further the Zimmermans' reasoning, O'Mara replied, "I truly want that explanation to go directly to the person who deserves it, Judge Lester. But not to sound coy, my understanding is that the family had been put upon with things - thrown out of their house, their jobs, schools, other family members in hiding. For whatever reason they felt the need to protect some of that money for a very uncertain future.

"I think now they realize that they should have simply trusted Judge Lester and the process to work with them fairly, even if they had not been treated fairly in the past. And I think they'll clear that up with Judge Lester.

"I think the Zimmerman family needs to apologize to the court for having not given him full information," O'Mara added. "I'm going to ask the court to rely on the fact that Mr. Zimmerman has, but for this event, treated the court fairly, treated the system fairly, he surrendered himself now twice, he's of course voluntarily given the police department all of the statements that they've wanted, he's involved in whatever testing the state has wanted or the defense has wanted. I think he's doing everything he should do.

"I think they were just acting out of fear and frustration, but they don't have that luxury," he said.

Rose asked O'Mara if he believed the judge had done the right thing by ordering Zimmerman back into jail.

"Judge Lester gave us all a very strong signal that he and he alone will run the courtroom and that everyone is going to tell the truth," O'Mara said. "I'm certain that not only the Zimmerman family but all other witnesses who come before Judge Lester had better tell the truth and nothing but the truth if they're going to be treated fairly."

The judge also ordered the release of state evidence that had been kept from the public because of sensitivity concerns.

George Zimmerman: a strong signal, a ‘pretty weird’ turn
June, 4 2012 1:18 PM


For tabloid headline writers, he has become “Zim.”
 
“Bail nixed, Zim in solitary,” the New York Daily News says in Monday’s edition.
 
The return of George Zimmerman to Seminole County Jail was a top story Sunday afternoon. He is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
 
Judge Kenneth Lester on Friday revoked Zimmerman’s bond because Zimmerman and his wife hadn’t revealed $135,000 in donations they received from the public.
 
Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara plans to file “a pretty straightforward motion” for a new bond hearing. Zimmerman’s team hopes for an audience with the judge to “further explain away why what happened seems to have happened.”   
 
In an interview on “CBS This Morning,” O’Mara told Charlie Rose: “Judge Lester gave us all a very strong signal that he and he alone will run the courtroom and that everyone is going to tell the truth. So I’m certain that not only the Zimmerman family but all other witnesses that come before Judge Lester had better tell the truth and nothing but the truth if they’re going to be treated fairly.”
 
WKMG-Channel 6 anchor Matt Austin said, “It’s pretty rare for a defense attorney to admit a mistake, and then almost suggest that his client apologize at least this early. It’s pretty weird.”
 
WKMG’s Erik von Ancken agreed: “A lot of things, as you know, in this case have been weird. Typically a defense attorney doesn’t stick his client on the stand to testify during that first bond hearing.”  ::snipping2::

George Zimmerman attorney seeks new bond hearing; donations spike
Attorney Mark O'Mara says his client was confused and fearful in misleading the court about his finances.
 Sarah WolfeJune 4, 2012 15:48

George Zimmerman's attorney filed a motion for a new bond hearing Monday, less than one day after the Trayvon Martin shooting suspect landed back in jail because his $150,000 bond was revoked.  ::snipping2:: 

A judge revoked his bond and ordered him back into custody on Friday after concluding Zimmerman and his wife deceived the court in April when Zimmerman's wife testified that they had limited funds.
 
The judge said he would schedule a hearing after Zimmerman was back in custody so he could explain himself, USA Today reported.
 
In a statement issued Monday, attorney Mark O'Mara said Zimmerman was confused and fearful when he allowed his wife to mislead court officials.   ::snipping2::

Details Regarding the Request for a Second Bond Hearing for George Zimmerman
[Zimmerman atty website] June 4 '12

 ::snipping2::  It must be noted that, when attempting to interpret George's actions regarding the funds, that he did disclose the existence of the funds five days after the bond hearing, during his first conversation with the defense about the fund. When the defense team learned of the funds, we disclosed this to the court and to the State Attorney's Office, and the money was transferred to the Legal Defense Fund which is now independently managed.  ::snipping2::

Was he even paying attention at the bond hearing??

Liar! Zimmerman’s Lawyer Says Client Lied Because He Was Confused, Fearful
Jun 4, 2012


ORLANDO, Fla. — The former neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin was confused and fearful when he and his wife misled court officials about their finances during an April bond hearing that allowed him to be released from jail, his attorney said Monday.
 
RELATED: Good News! Zimmerman Back In Slammer
 
Attorney Mark O’Mara wrote on a website run by George Zimmerman’s legal team that he will ask for another bond hearing. A day earlier, Zimmerman returned to jail because his $150,000 bond was revoked by a Florida judge after prosecutors claimed Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, deceived the court during the bond hearing.
 
At the hearing, Shellie Zimmerman testified that the couple had limited funds for bail because she was a full-time student and her husband wasn’t working. Prosecutors say Zimmerman actually had raised $135,000 in donations from a website he created.  ::snipping2::

Hat Tip to JusticeQuest.net

They were discussing how many Jail House, phone calls, GZ made. 

One day he made 133 calls, please correct me, if I am mistaken.

Hi seahorse, according to court records just posted those calls were made during one week.

Attorney: Zimmerman failed to disclose funds out of fear
George Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday

 ::snipping2::

Zimmerman's attorneys also provided a breakdown of how the money in question has been spent. Of the original $204,000 raised by his PayPal account, they say $150,000 was moved to his legal defense fund, $30,000 was spent to help Zimmerman make the transition from private life to being in hiding, and $20,000 was kept liquid for his living expenses.

O’Mara plans to file a motion Monday for a bond hearing to get Zimmerman out of jail but admits it could be an uphill battle.

The bond hearing for Zimmerman may not come quickly, because sources said Lester will be out of town for the next couple of days.

Zimmerman certainly has some explaining to do, but his legal team has not decided if he will speak on his own behalf.

"My understanding was that Judge Lester seemed to indicate that he wanted testimony. That is a very complex decision to make about what effect that would have, not only at the hearing itself, but any future testimony, so we haven’t made that decision yet," O’Mara said.

Legal analyst Jeff Deen said Zimmerman's wife, Shellie Zimmerman, could face perjury charges along with her husband for lying about the money.
