    Zimmerman bail revoked

    Zimmerman bail revoked

    Just breaking, via USA Today:

    A judge has revoked the bond of the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and ordered him returned to jail within 48 hours.

    Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said Friday that George Zimmerman misled the court about how much money he had available when his bond was set for $150,000 in April. Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000 available that had been raised by a website he set up.

    Prosecutors also say he failed to surrender a second passport.

    The defense says the finances are an innocent misunderstanding.

    Florida has a law prohibiting the recording of a audio conversation with out permission of all parties in the conversation.Since Mr.Zimmerman.s rights have not been taken from him just because he was arrested and also since he is a very important member of the defense team.His speaking to a potential witness, his wife I know, how is it legal.I did not follow the bail hearing but was Mr.Zimmerman asked about how much readily available funds he had and since the question was asked to his wife she herself had nothing to do with the defense fund.

    If he is jail, he has no expectation of privacy. They record all conversations, which makes you wonder what kind of “code” the SAO thought they discovered.

    I know they do ease drop on jailhouse conversations except when the conversation is between lawyer and accused.What I do not understand is since the accused is part of the lawyer’s defense team and he can, before trial, become his own lawyer by petitioning the judge.There has been many a defendant who has fired their lawyers and defended themselves.By questioning Mr. Zimmerman’s honesty and making this public, the very least should happen is the judge recuse himself from the case.His action shows a severe lack of impartiality, if in his opinion, the whole case hinges on what Mr.Zimmerman’s ethics are and not what the evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt.
