After he was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman was freed on $150,000 bond. However, the judge revoked the bond after learning that Zimmerman and his wife lied about how much money they had. (More than $100,000 had been donated to Zimmerman through a website he had set up for his defense fund.)
It was also revealed that Zimmerman had a second passport that he did not surrended to the court, as required under the terms of his bond.
The judge ordered Zimmerman back to jail. A new bond proceeding was held, with a different result.
From Associated Press:
A Florida judge ruled Thursday that George Zimmerman can be released from jail a second time on $1 million bond, saying he set the bail amount significantly higher because Zimmerman may have been hiding money as part of a plot to flee the country.
