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.
