George Zimmerman walked out of jail once again Friday, according to reports from Florida’s Bay News 9.

According to reports Zimmerman had to go through a bail bondsman, and pay 10 percent of the bond amount, which is $100,000. The news comes just one day after a Florida judge said it was entirely reasonable to believe Zimmerman could be making plans to flee:

“Notably, together with the passport, the money only had to be hidden for a short time for him to leave the country if the defendant made a quick decision to flee,” Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth R. Lester in the 8-page order. “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.”

Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara also told the Orlando Sentinel today that his team had secured a temporary safe house for Zimmerman.
