Skip to comments.George Zimmerman Returns to Sanford, FL [In Police Custody]
Posted on 06/03/2012 12:13:43 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
George Zimmerman has returned to Central Florida, arriving late Saturday evening. On Friday, June 1, the court revoked Mr. Zimmerman's bond, ordering him to return to custody within 48 hours. The defense team has coordinated with the Sanford Police Department to ensure Mr. Zimmerman's security when he turns himself in before today's 2:30 PM deadline.
While out on bond, Mr. Zimmerman has been living in a secure, undisclosed location as there are significant threats against his life.
Mr. Zimmerman's lawyers will request a new bond hearing where they can address the court's concerns regarding the representation of funds available at the time of the original hearing on April 20. The defense team hopes that Mr. Zimmerman's voluntary surrender to Sanford police will help demonstrate to the court that he is not a flight risk. Furthermore, the vast majority of the funds in question are in an independently managed trust, and neither Mr. Zimmerman or his attorneys have direct access to the money.
On May 8, Mr. Zimmerman waived his right to a speedy trial to allow the defense team the time needed to prepare for trial. It is anticipated, though not certain, that the case will not be ready for trial until some time into 2013, and the next bond hearing will determine whether Mr. Zimmerman will wait those many months in jail or not.
Do we even hear of authorities going after ANY of those threatening this defendant? Crickets.
He’ll explain himself and be out by Tuesday. This is all a joke..
"Does your client get to sit there like a potted palm and let you lead me down the primrose path?"
Democrats love a lynch mob. Always have; always will. They practically invented them.
If I were he, I would have packed up my wife and went to the Bahamas. The judge doesn't realize what scared, threatened, innocents do???
And I don't think they had any right to record his phone calls.....innocent until proven guilty!!! Did they have a warrant to do that?
The court had no problem with Zimmerman, they are only frightened of the mob.
That is why they ordered him back,because a mob, a would be lynch mob was threatening the court.It was Court cowardice that brought Mr. Zimmerman back.
Sweet....The judge knows Shakespeare....big whoop....
If you’re in custody you’re have to be an idiot not to expect that every conversation is recorded.
I sent money to his PayPal account. Sorry to hear he doesn’t have access to it.
What world are you in? Zimmerman has the right to remain silent. Even in court. He has no obligation to speak. That's what lawyers are for.
Exactly.....well, except for the dead guy.
The judge can require him to be present via writ of attachment. Gz doesn’t have to say shit. Defense? He had no access to “gifts”. He was in jail. If they want to make a circus out of this, hold the wife in contempt. This whole thing is crazy talk..
Hispanic voters need to comprehend that THIS what is being done to George Zimmerman is the real democrat policy toward minorities ... manipulate them, use them, make dependents out of them, and kill them off when it is politically empowering. George has been set up and now must be eliminated so the criminal enterprise Just Us department doesn’t lose face. Make no mistake, Hispanics, the orders for what to do to and with George Zimmerman are coming directly to Floriduh from the criminal unJustice Department run by the criminal enterprise democrat party who think they own your vote.
“Exactly.....well, except for the dead guy.”
I’ll fix that for you:
“Exactly.....well, except for the dead THUG.”
The money thing isn’t much of an argument, but having a second passport and having two passports by reporting one missing will be a huge issue when it comes to flight risk.
The big signs saying that all calls are recorded next to the phones in jails, and the even bigger signs on the doors of visitation rooms are usually enough to tip most people off.
Damn....the lynch mob just keeps feeding the fire...
The media keeps showing the photo of Trayvon when he was a round-faced cherub of fourteen years old, sans gold teeth and in your face attitude. Also, they keep on showing the “fat” photo of Zimmerman before he lost a huge amount of weight.
There may come a time when a person has to say “sayonara” to the U.S. and tell the “Trayvons” (Obama’s sons) they’ll just have to fish or cut bait as far as the socialist Democrat freebies go. . and then where are they gonna get all the “wealth” to “spread around”?
What they said in court is correct...they hadnothing...that paypal was for his defense.....or is the state's object to scr** the attorney of the accused, too.
It's not like it was hidden...........IT WAS ON THE WEB.....
I SMELL ANOTHER SETUP.
I know you are a supporter of thugs and criminals and gang-bangers. . .so no surprise.
The lynch mob against white men defending themselves from black thugs continues to celebrate.
He's still a chubby ... must be eating a lot of twinkies.
Sorry, I’m a supporter of nothing but the truth. Post the verified facts that prove zimmerman killed martin because of martin’s thuggery and then we’ll talk. Until you can do that you just babbling.
I might be wrong but I thought the calls were from jail and all of those are monitored.
Dead man walking?
How many citizens in Florida and those states that have ‘stand your ground’ and self-defense laws, are going to think twice before firing, AND DIE as a result of hesitation and being scared of becoming the next Zimmerman ???
The libs are using this case in an attempt to STOP all citizen self-protection legislation. Maybe even reverse the progress that has been made in recent years.
How can someone contribute to Mr. Zimmerman’s legal defense without using Paypal?
Sorry, I don't know. Maybe look up the name of his lawyers and call them directly.
Innocent until proven guilty, remember?
What facts are known benefit Z and implicate T.
Don't be sorry. If he had access to it, the judge would be demanding he surrender it as bail so he won't be able to afford to defend himself. This is what the lynch mobs want: No defense for George Zimmerman.
He may be wearing body armor under his shirt. If there's access for a photographer to shoot a picture, no telling what some lynch-mob liberal might try.
fwiw, He was wearing a electronic monitoring device.
Except that the judge realized that argument was bogus because his attorney O’Mara was in possession of that second passport.
The judge’s order for GZ to return was based on the monetary issue, he dismissed the passport issue after O’Mara explained the truth.
GZ is getting the shaft.
Its all in the autopsy and medical reports and witness statements. Trayvon's bloody knuckles and the injuries to Zimmerman's head tell us who the thug was.
When you have genuine proof that martin started the fight and acted thuggish (instead of running away - as zimmereman said) then post it.
Until then you too are just babbling.
His attorney has already taken responsibility for the passport mistake. He stated that GZ gave him his passports and that the attorney made the mistake. Seems like a foolish mistake for a professional attorney to make but either way it has nothing to do with GZ.
No, the phrase is "presumed innocent" until proven guilty.
Do you want to argue that OJ was innocent?
"What facts are known benefit Z and implicate T." -----
Which known facts, the ones where zimmerman (armed with a loaded sidearm) got out of his car to follow and martin (unarmed) ran away, are those the facts you mean?
I mean the rather large pile of facts, well & widely discussed on FR in great detail, which you obviously choose to ignore.
“Which known facts, the ones where zimmerman (armed with a loaded sidearm) got out of his car to follow and martin (unarmed) ran away, are those the facts you mean?”
I have seen no evidence to support your theory. Like I said in my above post I will wait to see what evidence is presented at trial before making my decision.
Make that my final decision.
Thanks for enlightening me. The part about O’mara having the other passport didn’t make the initial press articles. Surprise.
So then you’re saying that you think that 5-7 Zimmerman would be stupid enough to throw the first punch against a 6-3 hoodie in the dark? He wouldn’t have stood a chance and he knew it and the facts of the encounter bear it out.
