“They felt that the apology had a lot of self-serving motives,” said Benjamin Crump, the family’s attorney. “We think it was to curry favor to the court. It was offensive to the family.”
Crump said it took Zimmerman 50 days to muster up an apology. “He waited until the hearing to apologize. He never once said he was sorry for taking the life of Trayvon Martin. He never said he felt remorse.”
The bond hearing was the first time the family was in the same room with Zimmerman.
Zimmerman was set free on $150K bond shortly after midnight Monday. To much surprise, he only needed to pay 10% of the total amount to be set free. He isn’t allowed to use drugs, firearms, drink alcohol and he must observe a curfew of 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
He’s currently charged with second degree murder.
There’s no indication yet as to when the trial will begin.
