– 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. I did not know if he was armed or not.”
– George Zimmerman
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester granted George Zimmerman bond at $150,000 today during a hearing at Seminole County Criminal Justice Center.
George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, took the witness stand and issued his first public statement on the shooting.
“I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son,” Zimmerman told Martin’s parents on the witness stand. “I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not.”
In 911 audio, George Zimmerman, 28, told an emergency police dispatcher Martin was in his “late teens.”
George Zimmerman is claiming self-defense in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old teen who was gunned down as he walked to his father’s fiancé’s home from a local store.
