ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The attorney for the man accused of fatally shooting Florida teenager Trayvon Martin is asking the judge in the case to modify his bond conditions.
Mark O'Mara filed a motion late Wednesday asking that George Zimmerman be allowed to leave Seminole County. In granting Zimmerman $1 million bond release last month, Judge Kenneth Lester mandated that he remain in the county of the February shooting.
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.
O'Mara argues that the mandate is interfering with Zimmerman's ability to contribute to his defense. Due to safety concerns, Zimmerman is living in hiding.
Lester revoked Zimmerman's original $150,000 bond in June, which did not have the same living restrictions, after he ruled that Zimmerman and his wife had misled the court about their financial status.
