The money in question appears to have been donated to Zimmerman through a website he set up to help with a legal defense fund.
Citing recorded jailhouse conversations between Zimmerman and his wife, prosecutors alleged the two spoke in code when discussing the money in a credit union account, according to a court documents filed Friday by State Attorney Angela B. Corey.
In light of that, Lester revoked Zimmerman's bond and ordered he turn himself in no later than Sunday afternoon.
Zimmerman "fully controlled and participated in the transfer of money from the PayPal account to defendant and his wife's credit union accounts," Corey said in court records. "This occurred prior to the time defendant was arguing to the court that he was indigent and his wife had no money."
O'Mara said in April that the money raised by the website was put into a trust account that the attorney controls.
But in court documents, Corey said the money still belongs to the defendant.
The judge "relied on false representations and statements" by Zimmerman and his wife when the court set his bond at $150,000, Corey said. Zimmerman was required to post only 10% of that.
Corey argued that the court should revoke the bond or increase it.
Lester appeared angry that the court had not been told about the money.
"Does your client get to sit there like a potted palm and let you lead me down the primrose path?" he asked Zimmerman's lawyer. "That's the issue."
