Jail Call Says Defense Attorney Knew About Zimmerman’s Hidden Money

In a jailhouse call, George Zimmerman had allegedly told a friend that his lawyer knew that donations had poured in. Prosecutors now released nearly 150 of George Zimmerman’s recorded jailhouse phone calls Monday that would make the statement plausible. On April 14 a phone call was recorded between George and his friend Scott to discuss the new defense lawyer and the attorney’s plan for an upcoming bond hearing. Zimmerman allegedly tells his friend that he told his new attorney, Mark O’Mara, that he tried to transfer $37,000 from his online legal defense fund site, but could not complete the transaction because of PayPal rules that prevent transfers larger than $10,000. According to the recordings, Zimmerman twice mentions telling O’Mara about the money. He allegedly said O’Mara knew about the attempted transfer of $37,000, but not any more than that; they agreed to keep it that way. Reached late Monday by the Miami Herald, O’Mara insisted he did not know about the money. Do you think O’Mara was duped by his client or was he trying to mislead the judge? For more information go to the Miami Herald.
