George Zimmerman’s lawyers aren’t done fighting for their client. Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, turned himself into the Seminole County jail in Sanford, Florida, yesterday after a judge revoked his bond on Friday, but his lawyers are filing a motion for his release again. A judge pulled his bond after it was revealed that Zimmerman told the court his finances were “limited," despite raising $135,000 for legal defense from anonymous donors through a website. His lawyers are arguing that his inaccurate statement was “caused by fear, mistrust, and confusion,” and that he has otherwise been “forthright and cooperative” in court.
