After his bond was revoked, George Zimmerman returns to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Fla., Sunday, June 3, 2012. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman’s legal defense team said Tuesday it would hold off for “a couple of weeks” filing a motion for a second bond motion for its defendant in the Trayvon Martin shooting case.

The delay announcement comes a day after defense attorney Mark O’Mara acknowledged on his case’s website that Zimmerman misled a Sanford, Fla., court about his finances but vowed he would seek a new bond hearing based on his client being “forthright and cooperative” in all other aspects.


No reason was immediately given for the delay, but O’Mara said he would file a motion “well in advance of the hearing.”

Zimmerman's next bail hearing has not been set yet, but his legal defense team said it was not expected for a couple of weeks.

Key events in the Trayvon Martin case

Zimmerman, 28, surrendered to authorities Sunday, two days after Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman's $150,000 bond that was granted April 20. Prosecutors demonstrated that Zimmerman had at least $135,000 that he did not disclose in a special PayPal account he had set up to pay for his defense.

Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Martin, 17, as he walked through a gated residential community in Sanford, near Orlando, on Feb. 26.

On Monday, O'Mara said in his statement:

"We feel the failure to disclose these funds was caused by fear, mistrust, and confusion. The gravity of this mistake has been distinctly illustrated, and Mr. Zimmerman understands that this mistake has undermined his credibility, which he will have to work to repair.

"At the point of the bond hearing, Mr. Zimmerman had been driven from his home and neighborhood, could not go to work, his wife could not go back to a finish her nursing degree, his mother and father had been driven from their home, and he had been thrust into the national spotlight as a racist murderer by factions acting with their own agendas. None of those allegations have been supported by the discovery released to date, yet the hatred continues."
