George Zimmerman’s defense filed its motion for a new bond this morning as a hearing is still set for Friday.
In the motion filed, Zimmerman’s defense contends that he is not a flight risk, and their requests are similar to those imposed before.
Last month, Zimmerman’s bond was revoked and he was sent back to jail after prosecutors revealed that he and his wife had lied about the money he received through his website.
The new motion says that Zimmerman recognizes his role in misleading the court, saying that he "accepts his part in allowing the Court to be misled as to his true financial circumstances."
The defense argues that Zimmerman "has no criminal convictions, no history of failing to appear at court proceedings and has significant ties to the community as evidence at his initial bond hearing."
Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara is asking the court to reinstate his client's original bond and conditions, which included GPS monitoring.
Zimmerman’s new bond hearing is scheduled for Friday the 29th.
