Tensions remain high and emotions continue to boil over surrounding the case of George Zimmerman. It was recently revealed that his defense lawyer, Mark O’Mara, has been receiving death threats to his office.
Defense attorney Mark O'Mara told ABC News that Zimmerman's online defense fund has been receiving about $1,000 a day in donations, but the pace picked up after a judge required Zimmerman to return to jail.
Reports have surfaced from Zimmerman's camp detailing that George Zimmerman has turned himself in and is back in police custody for charges relating to the February murder of Trayvon Martin.
STORY: The Reason Zimmerman Is Going Back To Jail
A hearing is scheduled today for the court to rule on motions filed by both the state prosecution and the defense in the George Zimmerman trial, as to whether or not all evidence should be made public.
Apparently in need of a little bit more help, George Zimmerman's defense added a new attorney on Thursday. Orlando defense lawyer and former assistant federal public defender Don West has joined the team.
The state and the defense in the George Zimmerman trial both agree that media should not be privy to the evidence surrounding the case. Each side hopes that a judge will keep all the evidence private from the media.
