George Zimmerman Released From Florida Jail

George Zimmerman, the man who killed unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, was released from jail early Monday morning after posting bond and being fitted with an electronic monitoring device, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.

Zimmerman left the John E. Polk Correctional Facility at about midnight, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

On Friday, a Florida judge ruled that Zimmerman could be freed on $150,000 bond while he awaits trial on a charge of second-degree murder in the killing.

Zimmerman has said he acted in self defense on the night of Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla.
