SANFORD, FL (AP/WAOK) – A Florida judge will weigh several factors in deciding whether to set a second bond for the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin.

The judge on Friday will consider if George Zimmermanis a flight risk or a threat to the community. Most importantly, Zimmermanwill have to persuade the judge he won’t be deceptive again.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman$150,000 bond earlier this month when prosecutors told the judge Zimmermanand his wife misled the court about how much money they had during an April bond hearing.

Prosecutors said a website Zimmermancreated for his legal defense had raised $135,000 at the time of his first bond hearing. Zimmermanand his wife didn’t mention the money then.
