    George Zimmerman walked out of the Seminole County jail just after midnight Monday morning after posting $150,000 bail. Zimmerman put up $15,000 (10 percent) of the bail total to be released and was headed to an undisclosed location that could be outside of Florida. The neighborhood-watch volunteer did not make any statement before entering a white BMW outside the jail. Zimmerman has been ordered to adhere to an evening curfew and was stripped of his passport. He also is not allowed to possess a gun. Legal experts say it is not uncommon for a person charged with second-degree murder to go free before his or her trial.
