George Zimmerman, now that's a name that we couldn't forget even if we wanted to. Apparently, Zimmerman is being subjected to the scrutiny of being imprisoned again. Apparently, Zimmerman's hobby of lying has finally began to bite him. A florida judge has ordered  Zimmerman to surrender himself to the authorities within 48 hours. It seems that Zimmerman has intentionally lied to the courts about his financial situation and the courts have been informed about a passport that Zimmerman had acquired just two weeks after  he murdered Trayvon Martin.

According to Essence,

A Florida judge has given George Zimmerman, the self-appointed neighborhood watch captain who shot Trayvon Martin, 48 hours to surrender himself to police. 

According to ABC, prosecutors in the case filed a motion alleging that Zimmerman "deceived" the court about his finances and his possession of a second passport, which he reportedly secured two weeks after the shooting. 

"The court was led to believe that they didn't have a single penny," said prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda. "If this [money] wasn't relevant to bond then why did they lie about it? I don't know what other words to use besides that it was a blatant lie."

Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. agreed with the prosecutors and said, "They were aware of the money that was available."

Bank records from the day before Zimmerman's bond hearing indicated he had a total of $135K in his account. However, at that particular hearing, Zimmerman "declared himself financially indigent."
