Posted on 06/01/2012 1:16:33 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Trayvon Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump spoke on the recent news of George Zimmermans bond being revoked earlier today by Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester.
Judge Lester ruled that Zimmerman has at least 48 hours to turn himself into police after it was revealed that Zimmermans wife misled the court about the funds he was receiving through PayPal donations.
Upon hearing that Zimmermans bond had been revoked, Crump said:
"This is such an important ruling today because once again George Zimmerman's credibility is the issue he should remain in custody until there is a trial....Judge Lesters ruling in this matter is so important because it causes everyone to focus on Zimmermants credibility.
This is crucial when it is only Zimmermans testimony that Trayvon attacked him and all the objective evidence says he perused, confronted, and shot Trayvon."
Trayvon's courageous family spoke out on the matter as well. In a simple tweet, Trayvons mom wrote Praise God, while his brother Jahvaris Martin tweeted:
Zimmerman has been locked back up. I hope he stays in jail. Children will be much safer.
Prosecutors contest that Zimmerman told his wife, Shelley Zimmerman, about PayPal donations he was receiving while in jail and that she lied in the bond hearing about being aware of these funds.
But thats not all; it was also revealed that Zimmerman had a second passport in addition to the one he surrendered to police after he was released on $150,000 bond.
The prosecution went on to say that Zimmerman "intentionally deceived the court" with his wife and talked about monies received "in code to hide what they were doing."
On the issue of Zimmerman's passport, the prosecution said:
"Zimmerman surrendered had been reported lost or stolen. He didn't turn over new, valid one."
On the issue of the money Zimmerman received in donations, prosecutors contend:
"This court was led to believe that they didn't have a single penny" saying that Zimmerman called his wife from jail before bond hearing & "repeatedly tells her about the money."
Lawyers for the state believe that Zimmerman's wife is guilty of contempt of court for lying and asked for Zimmerman's bond to be revoked, raised and for him to be sent back to jail.
Contempt of court usually results in a maximum of 6 months in jail.
The judge declared that Zimmermans wife had lied and decided to revoke Zimmermans bond. He has at least 48 hours to turn himself into police.
Lawyers on both sides were in Sanford today deciding whether or not to release key pieces of evidence and make them public to the media. In the end, the judge ruled to issue an order on evidence in 30 days. And no new evidence was released today.
TRAY! TRAY! we be on de march fo TRAY! TRAY!
The Democrat’s version of “Social Justice” in action.
Rush Limbaugh paraphrased from today’s show. bttt
This whole thing is just beyond outrageous. $150,000 bail is high to start with.
When you are on trial for murder, and your testamony is a critical part of your trial; I would think it would be in your best interests not to intentionally mislead the judge in any area. But, that’s just me ...
That’s true - if only the Judiciary and Prosecutor were held to such standards of integrity and honesty.
It will be Ft. Sumter when Zimmerman is acquitted. Regardless of who occupies the White House, there will be riots in the streets.
The article states that it was Zimmermans wife, not Zimmerman, who misled the court.
A minor detail, I’m sure.
Beyond reasonable doubt?
Besides the headline?
Zimmerman doesn’t stand a chance in court. Having a backup/escape plan would be a very good idea.
Or is this all created by the race baiting poverty pimps?
These people are not going to be satisfied until this man is drawn and quartered WITHOUT a trial to chants of “this is fo’ Trayvon, this is fo’ Trayvon!” - Even then, where past “injustices” are concerned, two wrongs still won’t make a right, but it’ll do for the moment.
Regardless of the merits of the case (or lack thereof), holding onto a valid passport and turning in the one reported lost or stolen was a BAD MOVE. That makes him look more like a flight risk, which should be the primary motivation behind setting bail.
Zimmerman had a paypal account and he was in jail when the money started flowing in. It was growing thousands per hour so whatever number he told his wife it would be low. Paypal also holds money 2-3 weeks on new account over $1000 so he may not have received any of the money yet ?
Also, did he had internet access in jail to knoiw what was going into his paypal ?
But is that the truth or is it a made up lie?
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?
(the autopsy states she was raped. Dont think all of these animals didnt all participate)
And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?
Mr. Strait died from his injuries last week.
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?
WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?
Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.
He wouldn’t have access in jail directly. Only by proxy. The judge knew about the money. Just another POS judge.
I am absolutely certain Zimmerman cannot get a fair trial. And especially an impartial jury.
“Mom” needs to lighten up. She’s made just about all she’s going to make off of this. Her 15 minutes are just about done. Go spend the money.
I don’t believe a thing I hear from the mainstream media. They lie.
OTOH this is Florida, the same state that allowed Terry Sciavo to be murdered.
I don't think he will be acquitted. One of three things is more likely IMO. One, he will plead to a lesser charge because of the threat of pretrial jail and jail for his wife; or two, he will be killed in jail, or three, he will be convicted because it will be made plain to the jurors that their own safety and any normal lives will depend on a guilty verdict.
.............Zimmerman doesnt stand a chance in court.............
Unfortunately, Zim doesn’t stand a chance in jail, with Bubba on the loose!
I see this issue as fault on every side. First, Zimmerman did probably overstep what the dispatcher told him and followed Tray around when he should have done otherwise and returned to his vehicle. Tray got angry at being followed and did what HE should not have done either in attacking Zimmerman. Then of course the wife lied. So all three have made a bad situation the worst it could be for everyone.
Malleable and corrupt judge subverts the law, throws a bone to the Black mob.
End of story.
You have zero evidence that he misled anyone.
This is a political show trial, not an attempt to do justice. The solid evidence is all in Zimmerman’s favor.
Why would he have a second passport? These things have a “time” to them. Is it expired??
>> “I see this issue as fault on every side. First, Zimmerman did probably overstep what the dispatcher told him and followed Tray around when he should have done otherwise and returned to his vehicle.” <<
That idiotic idea has been shown to be totally false, and no rational person would coddle it.
It has been proved that he did NOT keep following Martin, he said OK when the dispatcher told him they didn't need him to follow the guy and he said he was returning to his truck. He was on the way back when Martin jumped him. There is only one person to blame in this mess and that is Trayvon "the thug" Martin.
Well, Zimmerman is a Democrat, so this isn’t a surprise.
Punishment first, trial later. Crump has been very consistent on this.
They’re just a couple of feeble old crackers. They’ve had enough time on Earth, time for them to shove off and allow the Amish a chance to breathe for awhile.
(do I HAVE to /s?)
This should be worth another $75 in the coffers this week for the Martin’s Trayvon for sainthood tour. They can claim that they need to keep Zimmerman locked up so that he can’t depose all those witnesses who just might expose Trayvon as the aggressor and the hoodie that he was.
I hope someone is keeping track of the time off the mother has had donated to her. One article said it’s 34 weeks. That’s income she wouldn’t have had, and she’d better be paying taxes on it. I wonder how forthcoming she’ll be on her tax returns next year.
Da Martins be Robo-tripping.
She is currently being paid by her job even though not there. The other employees are donating their vacation time back to the company so that it can continue to pay her while she travels around on the Deny Justice For Zimmerman tour.
Yes, and she will need to claim that time off/pay as income, and pay taxes on it.
It's interesting to note that most government agencies set a limit on the amount of time you can take off from work for emergencies, family illnesses, deaths, etc. They've thrown it out the window for her. They also limit you to the amount of time you can accrue. I retired from NY State in 2003. At that time, you could only accrue 1000 hours of sick leave, and if I remember correctly, 6 weeks of vacation. Once you reached those limits, you could not earn anymore time until you used some of it to get the numbers down. She's being given 34 weeks of leave...something no other employee gets the benefit of. And, they've set a terrible precedent. Are they going to refuse the next person who has a similar thing happen in their family?
Good point. In high profile cases, particularly involving the federal government, DOJ seems to come up with charges aimed at family members to soften up their target. I wouldn't be surprised if the DOJ guys have been sharing their advice with the Florida prosecutors.
Always avoid having family members make any statements at all unless they are thoroughly vetted by counsel, and absolutely essential.
Other employees at her agency (she’s a government employee) supposedly contributed time-off to her “voluntarily” so she could travel from protest to protest and from church to church collecting funds for justice.
New York State has a voluntary leave donation program, but it was only allowed for individuals who have used up their own leave time, and suffer from a serious/terminal illness or have been severely injured in an accident. We were only allowed to donate sick time, not vacation time or personal leave. No one would be approved for the program just so they could publicize their kid’s death.
O’Mara reported the funds the next week. O’mara did an interview on CNN about it. Things must be going really badly for Ms. Corey and Mr. Crump. Also the passport story is not quite as nefarious as has been reported at first.
Also when it gets tossed no one can rightly blame the judge.
So be it. So tired of the extortion anyway.
The passed a special ordinance in Miami to allow her go get paid for 37 (IIRC) weeks most of which was donated by other people.
He’s a non-white Democrat. I SERIOUSLY doubt he’s going to do any time.
I have faith, albeit limited, in our criminal justice system. Zimmerman is NOT a criminal, and I believe the evidence bears that out.
OJ was a disappointment because he was guilty. The blacks cheered. Zimmerman will be a success because he’s innocent. The blacks will riot.
Which is essentially Crump's way of saying that the purpose of today's ruling is to taint the jury pool. Why should the issue of a defendant's credibility be important to anyone other than the 12 jurors who will end up deciding his case?
Because it is Judge Lester alone and no one else who will make a ruling in the Stand Your Ground Hearing coming up in a few weeks. If the judge believes his account then it is over and he is exonerated and free to go. If not then it is on to an unnecessary lengthy trial at the taxpayers' expense. His credibility before the judge will be critical in this hearing.
But since all the forensic evidence and credible witnesses back up GZ's account of events that night, and all those 50 depositions that the prosecution fears should be available for that hearing, then his account of things should have a lot of corroborating company. Just tell the truth judiciously.
Yes, ‘praise God’ an innocent man is being railroaded bty a corrupt justice system because Black folks demand a guilty verdict before a trial even begins- and ‘praqise God’ this country has htrownj udicial and prosecutorial integrity clean otu hte window in favor of supporting a special interest group-
If these are the things self proclaimed ‘Christians’ are ‘praising God’ for these days, then this coutnry is in serious trouble
Seems odd to me that this country is crackign down on ‘schoolyard bullying’ yet this country doesn’;t even bat an eye when corrupt self-serving prosecutors bully innocent civilians and ruin hteir lives forever in the process-
You should send that article and your concerns to angela corey and to the ‘lawyers’ for the trayvon family- and ask the question ‘since when does zimmerman defending himself rise to horrors that were committed by this gang of thugs agaisnt these poor folks?
