It certainly doesn’t look good for George Zimmerman’s case that he and his wife are being accused of lying in court about their funds at the time of his bail hearing. Whether intentional or not, that act has landed him back in jail with his bail revoked.
His credibility will come heavily into question due to the fact that he and his wife stated that they had no money, when in fact they had over $135,000 in a donation account setup on a website for Zimmerman’s legal defense.
Most of us can understand why he would do this, right? With no large sums of capital saved and no ability to earn a living, he has to do what he has to do for survival.
It is doubtful that supporters of Trayvon Martin and his family will simply see this as a mistake in logic or allow it to pass as some administrative oversight. He messed up big time, that was a big mistake. This will most certainly have implications in so far as his statements about what happened the night when he shot and killed Trayvon Martin.
The consequences of his error are already evident as a judge ordered Zimmerman’s bail revoked in light of this funding information coming to light. He is currently being held in a jail in Sanford, Florida until a new bail hearing is set. The judge ordered him to return to Florida in person so that he may explain himself.
No matter how his legal team spins this, it’s definitely a minus on the Zimmerman credibility factor.Share:
