A Seminole County judge upheld George Zimmerman’s bond conditions requiring him to remain in Seminole County on GPS monitoring.
Zimmerman, 29, is free on bond following his arrest for the Feb. 26 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman and his attorneys requested today’s hearing to remove his GPS monitoring and allow him to leave Sanford, Florida “for safety reasons.”
But Judge Debra Nelson denied the motion this morning.
Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara argued his client complied with the conditions of a previous court by Judge Kenneth Lester, who recused himself and was replaced by Judge Nelson.
Judge Lester imposed the stiffer restrictions on Zimmerman’s movements after he violated his original bond conditions by lying about his finances.
During his argument, O’Mara held up an obviously altered photograph of Zimmerman’s nose, saying the image was “undeniable evidence of innocence.” Zimmerman’s nose seemed miraculously healed in a mugshot taken later that same night.
Good for Judge Nelson! There is hope that justice will be served in this tragic case.
