[BREAKING] George Zimmerman Granted Bond
A judge has granted a $150,000 bond with restrictions for George Zimmerman who is accused of shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Moments before the bond was announced by the judge, Zimmerman apologized for the death of Trayvon.
Zimmerman said to the Martin family:
I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit older than I am, and I did not know if he was armed or not.
The restrictions to Zimmerman’s bond include GPS monitoring, no weapons, and no contact with the victim’s family. The prosecution had asked the judge for a $1 million bond. Zimmerman will not be released today, but will await trial outside of jail.
