Geroge Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, was released Friday on $1 million bond.
It is the second time that he has been freed on bond.
His previous $150,000 bond was revoked after prosecutors presented evidence to Judge Kenneth Lester ruled that he had misled the court about his finances.
Thee Orlando Sentinel reports that Zimmerman's lawyers were able to post the bond with help from an influx of $20,000 in donations to their client's defense fund.
Update at 2:58 p.m. ET: George Zimmerman was released today on $1 million bond, the Associated Press and other media report.
He left the Seminole County jail wearing a white dress shirt and a jacket, the AP reports.
Judge Kenneth Lester, who set the bail on Friday, has restricted Zimmerman to Seminole County and required that he wear an electronic monitoring device.
Zimmerman was able to meet the bond in part because of a $20,000 spike in donations to his defense fund.
His defense team published an appeal today on Zimmerman's website.
Update at 1:35 p.m. ET: USA TODAY's Yamiche Alcindor reports that Zimmerman's team appealed for more donations, saying the defendant and his wife "do not have anywhere near" the money needed to secure the collateral needed for his release.
The legal team announced that because Zimmerman is required to remain in Seminole County upon his release, a safe house has been set up for him while his legal teams looks for a more permanent location.
"Once Mr. Zimmerman's release has been secured, we will change our focus from securing bond to the defense of the charges against him," his lawyers noted.
Original post: Zimmerman, 28, a neighborhood watch volunteer, faces second-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of the unarmed black teenager.
His initial defense fund received more than $200,000 after the shooting in a Sanford, Fla., gated community Feb. 26. Zimmerman claimed self-defense in the killing of 17-year-old Martin.
Zimmerman was intially freed on $150,000 bond, but that was revoked after the court found that he and his wife, Sherrie, had attempted to deceive the court over their financial assets, particularly funds donated for his defense.
Judge Kenneth Lester increased the bail to $1 million Thursday.
"It is entirely reasonable for this court to find that, but for the requirement that he be placed on electronic monitoring, the defendant and his wife would have fled the United States with at least $130,000 of other people's money," the judge wrote in setting the higher bail, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
The appeal ends with this pitch:
For those who have given in the past, for those who have thought about giving, for those who feel Mr. Zimmerman was justified in his actions, for those who feel they would do the same if they were in Mr. Zimmerman's shoes, for those that think Mr. Zimmerman has been treated unfairly by the media, for those who feel Mr. Zimmerman has been falsely accused as a racist, for those who feel this case is an affront to their constitutional rights -- now is the time to show your support.
