George Zimmerman’s attorneys have finally set a date for a new bond hearing.

Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s lead attorney, told FOX 35 he would petition the court on June 29 to release his client from jail.

Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watchman accused of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is back in jail after Judge Kenneth Lester revoked his bond last week.

Earlier this week his attorneys announced they would not immediately try and get their client out of jail. No reason was given.
