    That was not disclosed at the bond hearing, he'll most likely have $500,000 by the time the Court reconsiders the bond. Strange omission, isn't it?

    Good for him. It won't be enough, but it is a start.

    By the way, why is it a strange omission? Do you think the prosecutor did not know he had set up a web site to get money for his defense? Do you think the judge was unaware? Do you think that a defendant is required to disclose his finances just because he is under arrest?

    Should this have been MENTIONED at the bond hearing?

    He should get the death penalty because he is rich.

    It depends on whether that money is his to be used for whatever purpose he feels like using it for, or whether it is to be used for his legal defense and is the property of the attorneys.

    Since the family spent a few days getting together the $15,000 bond, it appears that they were respecting the $200,000 as to be used for attorney fees.

    It was contributions, I've read. And the day or so it took to release him was for arranging monitoring, or so I heard. I've also read Court may reconsider the bond.

    The prosecutor was certainly free to bring it up, but the defense has no obligation to.

    The judge let Zimmerman out for the price of $15K, on a murder charge. The judge even said Zimmerman can leave the state. Who doubts that Zimmerman's Jew daddy could easily raise far more than that? So, what difference would the $200K make? The Prosecutor knew about the fund raising website, but she knows Zimmerman is innocent, so does the judge. She made her "million-dollar bail, please" speech, to please all the shitbrained racists who hate Zimmerman because they think he's white. She did all she needed to do, for her agenda.

    No you can't have any. Get your own. No, it was not a strange omission. The fact that he was publicly raising funds was known from inception. You might ask about Tax Law, other than that you are fishing without bait.... again. ;)

    No. Bond is determined based on the seriousness of the crime and the likelihood of the accused to show up for court. It has nothing to do with the willingness of others to offer financial assistance.
