1. April 20: Bail set at $150,000 in Trayvon Martin shooting
Bail set at $150,000 in Trayvon Martin shooting

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) --

.....

A judge set Zimmerman's bail at $150,000 and his attorney said he could be free in several days. Authorities and attorneys need to work out arrangements to allow Zimmerman to live outside Florida as he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge because of threats made against him and his family.

.....

Wearing a charcoal suit, white shirt and gray tie - but also shackled and appearing to have on a bulletproof vest - Zimmerman took the witness stand to deliver a short statement to Martin's parents, who were in court.

"I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not," Zimmerman said.

.....

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set several conditions for Zimmerman's release, which he said would not occur Friday. He did not say exactly when Zimmerman could go free.
Zimmerman cannot have any guns, drink alcohol or use illegal drugs and must observe a curfew between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Zimmerman surrendered his passport at the start of the hearing.

.....




Under any circumstances, after 44 days without his arrest since he murdered an unarmed black child, to allow this man to walk is a miscarriage of justice.
