SANFORD, Fla. -

Less than six weeks after bailing out of jail, George Zimmerman was placed back behind bars Sunday.

Zimmerman is accused of killing Trayvon Martin. He surrendered about 1:30 p.m., just about an hour before a court-imposed deadline by the judge who revoked his bail.

Zimmerman remained silent as he was escorted back to jail, but defense attorney Mark O'Mara said his client has a lot on his mind.

"He is worried about himself. He is worried about his wife. He is worried about his family. He is worried about everybody who has to be in hiding," O'Mara said.

George Zimmerman's Donations Spike on His Return to Jail

http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimm...ry?id=16490782

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. ...........

O'Mara said that he will seek a new bond hearing and that the couple intends to apologize to the judge. .........

A transcript of one on April 16 conversation shows the couple talking in what the prosecution said was a code meant to hide the amount of money available. ..........

Zimmerman has waived his right to a speedy trial, meaning that if he is denied bail he could spend nearly two years in isolation as the trial, which is not expected to begin in 2013, progresses.

Attorney: George Zimmerman was confused, fearful
By MIKE SCHNEIDER, Associated Press – 1 hour ago
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — 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.

snip

"The gravity of this mistake has been distinctly illustrated, and Mr. Zimmerman understands that this mistake has undermined his credibility, which he will have to work to repair," O'Mara said.

Defense lawyers for George Zimmerman admitted Monday that their client made a “mistake” when he failed to mention some $135,000 he raised through a website before his April bond hearing, but the lawyers say this should not prevent Zimmerman from being released again on bail.

Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin of Miami Gardens, returned to jail in Seminole County on Sunday after a judge revoked his $150,000 bond. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said Zimmerman sat silently “like a potted plant” while his attorney argued in April that he didn’t have the money to pay a higher bail.

In fact, Zimmerman and his wife controlled at the time at least $135,000 in donations Zimmerman solicited over a website in the days before his arrest in the high-profile case, prosecutors said. Zimmerman first mentioned the account to his attorney five days after the bail hearing.

Prosecutors also had an issue with Zimmerman's second passport because it was not disclosed to the court until after he was granted bond. Lester required Zimmerman to turn over his passport as a condition for granting bond. Rionda said that Zimmerman had another valid passport that was not disclosed to the court until almost a month after bond was granted.

John Romano: Time to fix a flawed 'stand your ground' law

http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/colu...nd-law/1233609

.........So, no, I will not argue with the concept of a law based on self-defense.

But would you mind if I argued against the vagueness of that law?

Because if you read the [link] comprehensive report of "stand your ground'' by Tampa Bay Times reporters and researchers the previous two days, it's pretty hard to deny the ambiguity, misapplications and overall confusion this law has created in our court system.
-------

Yet consider the possibility that their confrontation had ended differently. What if it had been Martin who killed Zimmerman?

The teenager would have had a tailor-made case for a "stand your ground'' defense. After all, Zimmerman was an armed man pursuing Martin for no apparent reason.

Now, isn't there something remarkably ambiguous about a law that can be claimed by either side in the same deadly confrontation? The deciding factor should not be who survived long enough to act as their own witness.

George Zimmerman: Will he be given a bond?

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/...amily-new-bond

........."Zimmerman will get another bond hearing. The court's going to want to hear from Zimmerman, and he probably will get a bond," WFTV-Channel 9 legal analyst Bill Sheaffer predicted...........

WKMG-Channel 6's legal analyst Luis Calderon said: "Judge Lester has put his foot down. He's not going to tolerate misrepresentation being in the court. My opinion is that I don't think he's going to be given a bond.".......

WESH-Channel 2 legal analyst Jeff Deen said that attorneys will have a hard time re-establishing Zimmerman's credibility.

Orlando man with Zimmerman's old phone number slammed by threatening calls

At age 49,Junior Alexander Guy got his first cell phone last month. The calls started immediately.
Strangers called at all hours. Some were insulting. Others angry. Sometimes, they threatened him.
"You murderer!"
"You deserve to die!"

Writing on Newsmax.com, the Harvard Law School professor says Corey called the school and went on "a 40-minute rant, during which she threatened to sue Harvard Law School, to try to get me disciplined by the Bar Association and to file charges against me for libel and slander."

Officials plan to take closer look at stand-your-ground laws

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/...und/55480352/1

<modsnip>
--------

John Roman, a fellow with the Justice Policy Center at the Urban Institute, analyzed homicides in the U.S. from 2005 to 2009. He found that homicides are twice as likely to be ruled justifiable in stand-your-ground states and that in many incidents police can't arrest shooters and question them in detail, even though interviews are critical in cases like this.

He also pointed out that, according to data by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 34% of cases involving a white shooter killing a black person were deemed as a justifiable homicide. Meanwhile, in similar situations, when the shooter was black and the victim was white, the homicide was ruled justifiable only 3.3% of the time.

Will jury, or judge, decide George Zimmerman's fate?


The nation's fixation on the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin has led many to question whether an impartial jury could be found for the trial of his killer, George Zimmerman.
But it's possible a judge, not a jury, will decide Zimmerman's fate. He says he fired in self-defense, and many expect his lawyers will eventually ask for an immunity hearing under Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law.
