Home / National News / UPDATE: George Zimmerman Turn Himself in to Seminole County Jail


(SANFORD, Fla.) — UPDATE: George Zimmerman has turned himself in to the Seminole County Jail in Sanford, Florida. Wearing jeans and a plaid shirt, he appeared heavier and his previously buzz cut hair was grown out. The Sheriff’s Office did not let Zimmerman hide from the cameras this time, and instead, paraded him in front of the cameras.


Law enforcement officials say George Zimmerman is expected to make the court imposed deadline to surrender himself at the Seminole County Jail in Sanford, Fla. early this afternoon.

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara said his client is back in the state and the deadline for his surrender is 2:30 p.m., according to a news release on his website.

“While out on bond, Mr. Zimmerman has been living in a secure, undisclosed location as there are significant threats against his life,” the release said.

Once he arrives, Zimmerman will be booked again and will be placed into isolation in administrative confinement for his own protection, according to a law enforcement official.
