George Zimmerman Raises $200,000 from Web Site Donations

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

George Zimmerman, the self-appointed neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, has raised at least $200,000 through a website set up to fund his defense, his lawyer said on Thursday.

Donors contributed “just over $200,000,”said Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s defense lawyer.

The site set up to solicit funds for Zimmerman’s defense, therealgeorgezimmerman.com, has since been shut down.

Zimmerman was released this week on $150,000 bail and has been moved to an undisclosed location. He had surrendered to police earlier this month after prosecutors charged him with second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Martin in a gated community in the central Florida town of Sanford.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty and says he killed Martin in self-defense.

The incident has prompted civil rights protests and a national debate over guns, self-defense laws and race in America.

O’Mara told CNN that he would inform the judge in the case of the funds on Friday.
