George Zimmerman has been released from a Florida jail at midnight this morning after posting $150,000 bond. Charged with second-degree murder, he will now be living in a secret location as he awaits trial for the death of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman exited the John E. Polk Correctional Facility (JEPCF) at the Seminole County Sheriff's Office fitted with an electronic monitoring device.
The GPS device, which can pinpoint an offender's whereabouts at any given time, will be monitored by the SCSO and Seminole County Probation.
Reports indicate that he may be allowed to leave the state, which is unusual in a murder case, but is arguably necessary for his own security.
At his bond hearing on Friday morning, Judge Kenneth Lester agreed to allow George Zimmerman to post a $150,000 bond and leave jail pending trial.
The prosecution had argued that Zimmerman should be denied bail or that it should be set at $1 million, but Lester disagreed on both accounts.
