George Zimmerman gets bond, says he’s sorry for killing Trayvon Martin (video)

On April 20, 2012, George Zimmerman appeared before Judge Kenneth Lester where he attended a bond hearing. Court took a dramatic turn as George Zimmerman took the stand and spoke directly to Trayvon Martin’s parents who attended. Following the hearing, attorney for the Martins, Benjamin Crump, held a news conference and revealed the Martins were outraged at Zimmerman’s apology.

“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. And I did not know if he was armed or not,” George Zimmerman stated from the stand.

Judge Lester set bond at $150,000 and ordered George Zimmerman to wear a GPS monitor. Judge Lester prohibited Zimmerman from using drugs or alcohol and will need to meet a curfew set from 7:00 pm until 6:00 am throughout the duration of his bail. He is required to check in with authorities every three days. Though Zimmerman made a point of speaking out to Trayvon Martin’s parents, he will not be able to contact them while out on bond.
