George Zimmerman’s Attorney Wants $15,000 Bond For Client

George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, on Friday morning asked for his client to be released on $15,000 bond.

He also asked that Zimmerman, who has been charged with second-degree murder in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, be allowed to leave the state of Florida and that his location be kept under “extreme secrecy,” though he agreed to let his client be tracked by GPS.
