Legal Fund Also Paying Zimmerman Living Expenses

Tuesday, 08 May 2012 12:51 PM

 

Some of the money raised from George Zimmerman's legal defense fund is helping the former neighborhood watch leader pay for his living expenses and security while he awaits trial in hiding for the killing of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said on his website that just under $50,000 of the more than $200,000 raised by Zimmerman's now-defunct website is being used for his security and setting up his living arrangements in hiding. Zimmerman has about $15,000 in cash.

The other $150,000 raised by the website has been turned over to independent administrator to manage.

Zimmerman has an arraignment hearing Tuesday. But he already has pleaded not guilty and didn't plan to attend.
