Looks like the Trayvon Martin case has taken yet another surprising turn…
George Zimmerman, the man charged with the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon, has recently been released on bail.
At around midnight on Sunday, Zimmerman was seen leaving the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida, with his destination unknown. Zimmerman can’t hide for long, though — authorities have fit him with a GPS tracking device.
At his bond hearing on Friday, the bond had been set at $150,000, with Zimmerman’s family coming up with $15,000, the 10% needed in cash, to bail him out.
During the trial, Zimmerman spoke out to Trayvon’s family, saying:
"I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son. I thought he was a little bit younger than I was, and I did not know if he was armed or not."
Following his bail, Daryl Parks, an attorney for the Martin family said:
"It's tough for them to see their son's killer walk free again.”
The shooting occurred on February 26, with much controversy surrounding the case…most recently, with the judge for the trial recusing herself and now, Zimmerman’s bail.
We hope that all the evidence needed will be revealed and that justice will be served.
