Shortly after his release, Judge Kenneth Lester unsealed the court file in the 2nd-degree murder case, making a small portion of the documents public.
Among those documents is Zimmerman’s not guilty plea filed by his attorney Mark O’Mara. Zimmerman is facing 2nd-degree murder charges for the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. If he is found guilty, he could face life in prison.
Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bond, set by Judge Lester last week. Although O’Mara has said his client will remain out-of-state, Zimmerman is required to wear an electronic monitoring device, which will alert the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office of his whereabouts.
Additionally, Zimmerman must also adhere to a curfew from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
As part of the unsealed court documents O’Mara has also requested discovery – a motion to see all the evidence the prosecution has collected up until this point. But, both O’Mara and Special Prosecutor Angela Corey have requested to keep that evidence sealed in the case.
A hearing will be held Friday to consider a motion made by several media companies to make the evidence public.
