Attorney: Zimmerman No Threat to Society

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- George Zimmerman's attorney says the neighborhood watch volunteer poses no threat to the community and should be released a second time on bail.

The attorney asked in a motion released Monday that Zimmerman be granted bond for a second time as he awaits a second-degree murder charge for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

He was granted a $150,000 bond last April but it was revoked earlier this month after prosecutors accused Zimmerman and his wife of misleading the court about how much money they had raised from a website to pay for his legal fees.

A second bond hearing is set for Friday.

His wife, Shellie, was charged with making a false statement because of her testimony at the bond hearing.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

    This may will never get a fair trial thanks to the news spinning their own version of the truth.

      He hasn't been found guilty yet.He's been found guilty by everybody that has a ounce of sense, but he hasn't been found guilty by the court. He needs to be released out into free society. So he can "LIVE"{ even tho Trayvon didn't get to} free like anybody eles.
