Judge: Zimmerman Can Keep $200K

A Florida judge ruled Friday that George Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, could keep his $200,000 raised by supporters—despite having not disclosed it previously. Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara said that Zimmerman had experienced issues with his Twitter and Facebook accounts and may shut down his donation setup for fear of copycats making money off his cause. Prosecutors had asked that Zimmerman's $150,000 bond be increased, but Judge Kenneth Lester said he is worried about revealing the donors’ names—and is not sure he has the authority to increase the bond.
