The judge found probable cause (PC) to bound over the charges brought forth by police and prosecutors, and set #GeorgeZimmerman’s bond at $9,000 and ordered that he not possess guns or ammunition. He was ordered to stay away from the house of #SamanthaScheibe and wear a monitoring device.
I’m unsure as to whether the bond is “10 percentable” — if he just has to pay $900, or if he’ll have to pay $9000. Even if it’s not 10%, his brother can surely find a bail bondsman who will 10% it, so he’ll only have to shell out $900; the difference is that with a 10% bond, you get it back; going to a bail bondsman, you don’t. But the fact that the bail was only $9,000 tells me that the charges aren’t TOO serious; it gives you a preliminary peak into a judge’s mindset.
Zimmerman’s next court date in #SeminoleCounty is set for January 7th, 2014.
So no more packing heat for the Zimmer — unless he’s found not guilty again and gets no probation.
