UPDATES:

Judge finds probable cause (no surprise).

Prosecutor discloses unreported prior choking incident about a week ago. State asked for $50,000 bond, and certain exclusion zones, no contact, no weapons possession, etc. Defense asked for $4,900 based on state bond schedule.

Judge sets $9,000 bond. Can’t return to girlfriend’s residence, except if accompanied by law enforcement one time. [corrected – later in hearing judge said Zimmerman should send someone else.] Can’t have contact with girlfriend. No possession of firearms. Will have tracking device. No traveling outsided Florida.

Judge: “I’m not increasing your bond because of anything that happened in the past. As far as I’m concerned, this is a brand new case.”
