Remember when George Zimmerman sought donations from his website? You know, the one that looked like it was designed in the mid-'90s, and that proudly featured a photo from a vandalized black community center? Turns out Zimmerman raised $200,000.
Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, where he said that he just learned about the money on Wednesday and will inform a judge Friday. Zimmerman has shut his site down — he's been barred from engaging in any social media — but O'Mara said he will start a new defense fund for his client.
O'Mara admitted that if the judge had known about the $200,000 Zimmerman raised, Zimmerman's bail might have been set higher than $150,000. The defendant, who faces second-degree murder charges for shooting Trayvon Martin, was released from jail earlier this week after paying 10 percent of the bail.
