SANFORD, Fla. -
George Zimmerman, the man
accused in the death of , THAT KILLED Trayvon Martin, was granted $1 million bond Thursday morning.
In his ruling, Judge Kenneth Lester scoffed at the notion Zimmerman was confused at the time of his first bond hearing.
Lester said Zimmerman was "manipulating the system to his own benefit."
Zimmerman spent the 4th of July holiday behind bars after the judge could not come to a decision on whether to grand him bond at a hearing Friday.
Lester said he considered everything he heard at Zimmerman's bond hearing last Friday, and would make a decision Thursday. He decided $1 million was a fair amount.
Lester revoked Zimmerman's original bond in June after it came to light that he and his wife had misled the court regarding more than $130,000 donated to Zimmerman's legal defense fund. The judge said Zimmerman lacked respect for the law and ordered him to return to the Seminole County Jail, where he remains.
Martin was shot to death in a Sanford townhouse complex. Zimmerman said the shooting was self-defense. He faces second degree murder charges in the case.
