The judge, Ken Lester, set $150,000 bail for Zimmerman.
I am completely unfamiliar with what’s the normal bail amount for second degree murder in Florida. But most commentators on the web seem to feel this is a good outcome for Zimmerman. I suppose that if the judge believed that Zimmerman was the most evil man to ever live since Hitler, he would have agreed to the prosecutors’ $1 million bail request (an amount that Zimmerman’s family would not have been able to raise).
Here’s a link to the transcript of the hearing, which includes O’Mara’s cross-examination of Gilbreath, the investigator who signed the affidavit. I urge you to read the transcript carefully.
