The fund’s recent fundraising surge generated about $54,000 since January 1, money that allowed the team to hire three experts for Zimmerman’s upcoming trial.

The defense team also reported that Zimmerman and his wife have spent nearly $12,000 on living and household expenses in that time.

They had relaunched the fundraising effort and website Jan. 30, acknowledging that they had spent their way through more than $300,000 and were nearly broke.
