George Zimmerman out on Bond; On Electronic Monitor and Must Stay Away From Guns; but Will he Make it Through the Holiday Without Getting Violent?

Zimmerman Arrested

George Zimmerman was released from jail on Nov. 20 after posting a $9000 bail.

The murderer of teenager Trayvon Martin was arrested and charged with felony assault, battery and criminal mischief last week.

Zimmerman was released on the condition that he wear an electronic monitor, keep his distance from guns, and stay away from the girlfriend whom he pulled a gun on last week. The woman also claims Zimmerman tried to strangle her days before the incident. 

The choking accusation was disclosed for the first time by a prosecutor at Zimmerman’s first appearance Tuesday before Judge Frederic Schott, in a Sanford, Fla., courtroom. 

Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, feared for her life because Zimmerman mentioned suicide and said he “had nothing to lose,” according to Assistant State Attorney Lymary Munoz.

After the hearing, Zimmerman’s public defenders said he did not appear to be suicidal and expressed confidence he would be acquitted of any wrongdoing. 

Judge Schott said Zimmerman’s previous brushes with the law were not a factor in the conditions he imposed, but he did cite the new allegation of choking as a reason for the bond amount. 

Zimmerman faces up to five years in prison. His arraignment is set for Jan. 7.

Lauryn Hills Eviction and Tax Troubles

20130421-134117.jpg

Lauryn Hill is now facing eviction from her South Orange, New Jersey home
. Shes only one month past due, yet her landlord has already taken her to court.

Her Tax Troubles

While recently being interrogated by the IRS, singer Lauryn Hill admitted why she not only avoided paying her taxes, but probably why she mysteriously disappeared from the music industry after only one mega platinum album.

Hill claims she stiffed Uncle Sam and fell off the map after the ’90s after receiving scary threats to her and her family.

Lauryn failed to file tax returns for 2005, ’06 and ’07 … when she earned a total of more than $1.8 million. She has already pled guilty and faces several years in prison.

According to official docs … Lauryn stopped paying taxes “when she withdrew from society at large due to what she perceived as manipulation and very real threats to herself and her family.”

However, she won’t go into detail about the threats.

Lauryn’s asking the court to consider a bunch of other factors before her sentencing — including her claim that she can pay off the debt much faster if she’s not behind bars.

But it’s not looking good. Recently released actor Wesley

Lauryn is begging for probation instead of jail time, in order to begin paying her back taxes. A judge will be merciful — or not — on Monday, April 22.
