While in hiding before he was charged with the murder of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman set up a personal website to collect donations. It was shut-down earlier this week.
But, according to his attorney Mark O’Mara speaking on Anderson Cooper 360, Zimmerman’s defence fund collected $200,000 while it was up!
Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting of Trayvon Martin, was released from jail this week after paying 10 per cent of $150,000 bail.
O’Mara says the bail amount may have been higher if the judge knew Zimmerman had raised $200,000.
O’Mara said they may start another fund to receive donations.
