Zimmerman Can Leave County To See Lawyers

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The former neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin will be allowed to leave the county where he lives so he can meet with his attorneys.

Judge Kenneth Lester adjusted George Zimmerman’s bond terms on Friday so that he could have easier access to his lawyers. The terms of Zimmerman’s $1 million bond had required him to stay within Seminole County.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of the 17-year-old Martin. He’ll now be allowed to travel to nearby Orange County, where the offices of his attorneys are located. Any other movement will require he provide a detailed itinerary for continued GPS monitoring.

Lester also says he’ll review Zimmerman’s medical records to determine whether the defense must turn them over to prosecutors.
