Zimmerman had to put up 10 percent, or $15,000, to make bail. His father has indicated he would take out a second mortgage to pay the fee.
He was let out of the Seminole County Jail just before midnight last night April 22, 2012.
“Zimmerman posted bond and was fitted with an electronic monitoring device prior to release,” the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. He will also be on strict curfew and have to check in with authorities every three days, surrender his passport, and cannot have any guns.
Judge Kenneth Lester ordered Zimmerman to have no contact with Martin’s family and prohibited him from possessing firearms or drinking alcohol while awaiting trial on a charge of second-degree murder.
This is how the U.S. Judicial System works, so before you try to #causeAscene about this ongoing judgement remember ain't a damn thing you can do about it.
