Zimmerman Awaits Release From Jail On Bail

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — All eyes remain on the Florida town where George Zimmerman is awaiting release on bail.

Sunday marked the second day after a Florida  judge agreed to let the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin out on $150,000 bail.

Defense attorney Mark O’Mara has said it would take a few days for the release to be arranged. Zimmerman’s family needs to time to secure collateral for the bail and he needs to be fitted with an electronic monitoring device. O’Mara is also working on finding a safe place for Zimmerman to stay once he is out.

About a half-dozen photographers and cameraman remain camped outside the Sanford jail. There have been no protesters or signs of disturbance as the community awaits his release.
