George Zimmerman judge lets Trayvon Martin murder suspect leave county to meet with lawyers
Pictures: George Zimmerman faces murder charge
Judge Kenneth Lester adjusted George Zimmerman's bond terms so that he could have easier access to his lawyers. The terms of Zimmerman's $1 million bond had required him to stay within Seminole County, reports CBS Miami.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin on Feb. 26, 2012. He'll now be allowed to travel to nearby Orange County, where the offices of his attorneys are located. Any other movement will require he provide a detailed itinerary for continued GPS monitoring.
Lester also says he'll review Zimmerman's medical records to determine whether the defense must turn them over to prosecutors.
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty. He claims he acted in self-defense.
