ORLANDO, Fla. - The neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin is in a safe house that is being protected by his security team.
George Zimmerman was released Friday after posting bail for the second time on a second-degree murder charge. His attorney said Sunday he was in Seminole County in central Florida.
Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, posted on his defense website GZLegalCase.com announcing Zimmerman's placement in a safe house.
"Thanks to the outpouring of support from supporters, at the time of Mr. Zimmerman's release, more than $36,000 has been added to the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund," O'Mara wrote. "These donations have helped begin to offset the expense of the new increased bond, but it will require sustained support to fund what Mr. Zimmerman's legal defense."
Some of Martin's supporters have been angry Zimmerman was not arrested until 46 days after the February shooting, and Zimmerman has received death threats.
He was released from jail after his defense fund helped him post 10 percent of the $1 million bond.
A judge revoked his previous $150,000 bond last month when prosecutors presented evidence that Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about how much money they had.
