Judge Sets George Zimmerman's Bond At $1 Million

Play associated audio
A judge in Sanford, Florida, has set George Zimmerman's bail at $1 million, which means Zimmerman can be released while awaiting trial on charges of shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. But in his order, the judge expressed anger at Zimmerman's actions hiding some $200,000 from the court. He says Zimmerman "flaunted" the legal system and it appears he was preparing to flee to avoid prosecution, but his plans were thwarted. Greg Allen talks to Robert Siegel.
