George Zimmerman’s father testified that the male voice heard on a 911 tape was Zimmerman’s. “It was absolutely George,” said Robert Zimmerman after hearing a brief segment of the 911 call.
The prosecution asked him if he ever heard Zimmerman screaming before. “Oh, lots of times, he said. Robert Zimmerman also said he heard Zimmerman screaming “in a similar manner” at their home in Virginia.
Zimmerman is back in court hoping to be released on bond a 2nd time. A judge revoked his $150,000 bond earlier this month for lying about donations from the public.
Zimmerman’s lawyer, Mark O’Mara asked the judge to allow George Zimmerman to “apologize for what he did to you.” O’Mara requested that Zimmerman not be cross examined by the prosecution. After conferring with Zimmerman, O’Mara declined to put Zimmerman on the witness stand.

O’Mara just concluded his closing argument. He told the judge that Zimmerman and his wife “did not trust you” to disclose the $130,000 that they had.
“I don’t know what goes through a 28-year-old man’s mind,” said O’Mara, explaining that Zimmerman hid the money “generically, from his family, his friends and the jail.”
O’Mara, in his closing argument, said the “maneuverings of the money” was done without “intent”. “It’s obvious they’re hiding [the money] from the system,” said O’Mara.
O’Mara asked the judge to free Zimmerman on the same $150,000 bond as before. He also said Trayvon was shot because of “his own doing.”
Zimmerman is charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon MArtin in Sanford, Florida on Feb. 26.
