George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case: Zimmerman's legal defense fund renews donation plea

George Zimmerman's legal defense fund is renewing a plea for donations.

 A Florida judge ruled Thursday to raise the neighborhood watch volunteer's bond to one-million-dollars.

And now, a statement posted online to the official website for Zimmerman's legal defense has a sense of urgency.

It reads, "We steadfastly maintain that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense and that he is not guilty of second degree murder."

The website is run by the law firm of Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara.

Zimmerman is accused of second degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman was previously released on $150,000 bond but the judge ordered him back to jail when prosecutors showed he lied about funds available to him at his first bond hearing.

For now, Zimmerman is in solitary confinement at the jail in Seminole County.
