BREAKING NEWS2:48 PM ET Judge Revokes George Zimmerman’s Bond in Death of Trayvon Martin; Must Surrender Within Days


(CNN) -- Prosecutors in Florida asked a judge Friday to revoke bond for George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Prosecutors argued that Zimmerman "misrepresented, misled and deceived the court" during an April bond hearing about whether he had a U.S. passport and about his family's financial circumstances.

Meanwhile, Zimmerman's defense team and prosecutors will be on the same side in court Friday afternoon fighting media companies' request to release more information in the case.

Seminole County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. will preside over the hearing. Prosecution and defense lawyers will argue that a host of material should remain sealed. Scott Ponce of the Miami-based law firm Holland & Knight will argue for more disclosure on behalf of various newspapers, TV stations and their parent companies.

The opposing arguments were laid out in motions filed in advance of Friday's hearing.

He lied about his finances from the get-go.  Claiming hardship during a bail hearing when you've collected $200,000 from a website you created makes the court look stupid.  They afforded him a break and he thought he was smarter than then everyone.  Screw him.  All if does is show that he lies about everything and takes zero responsibility for his actions.  He is, after all, above the law.

The news also says he lied about a second passport that he got AFTER the murder.  It was in a safe deposit box while he lied to the judge saying the only one he had was lost or stolen and about to expire.
