Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. revoked his decision for George Zimmerman who was pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder of Martin, and has been free on bail.
Zimmerman and his family lied about their finances during the bail hearing that allowed him to be out of jail on a $150,000 bond. A certain website for George Zimmerman was created and raised money. About $200,000 from the website was raised and during the hearing there was already $135,000 had been raised.
During bail hearing Zimmerman's wife told the court, under oath that they din't have any single penny.
A telephone conversation was recorded between George Zimmerman and his wife while he was in the Seminole County Jail.
"This court was led to believe they didn't have a single penny," said Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda. "It was misleading and I don't know what words to use other than it was a blatant lie."
Judge Lester got angry for hiding Zimmerman's money. "Does your client get to sit there like a potted palm and let you lead me down the primrose path?" he asked Zimmerman's lawyer. "That's the issue."
Defense attorney Mark O'Mara was hoping that the revocation of his client case is just a temporary.
"We're going to have a conversation with the judge to try to explain it away. Hopefully, that will be worthwhile and we're going to get back out on bond."
He also said on a website that he is not expecting the case to be ready for trial until next year.
O'Mara said he expects to call on 50 witnesses who need to be deposed before he decides whether to file a "stand your ground" motion which would ask for a hearing before a judge without a jury. At the hearing, Zimmerman would argue self-defense under the Florida law which gives wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat in a fight if people believe they are in danger of being killed or seriously injured.
