A judge is considering whether to raise or revoke the bond for George Zimmerman after his lawyer told the judge a website raised $200,000 for the defense.

Mark O’Mara told the judge Friday that Zimmerman’s family hadn’t told him about the money before his client was given $150,000 bond.

Florida Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester says he wants to know more about the money before he decides whether to adjust the bond.

Zimmerman is accused of second-degree murder for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed.

Zimmerman claims self-defense. The neighborhood watch volunteer wasn’t charged for more than six weeks, leading to nationwide protests.

Lee temporarily stepped down as police chief on March 22, saying he wanted to let tensions cool.
