A medical report by Zimmerman's family doctor, made the day after the shooting, was made public on May 15. The report stated Zimmerman was diagnosed with a fractured nose, two black eyes and two lacerations to the back of his head.
On June 1, Zimmerman was ordered to surrender within 48 hours after a judge revoked his bond, following the prosecution's argument that Zimmerman and his wife allegedly misrepresented their finances when his bond was originally set in April. Two days later, Zimmerman surrendered to authorities and was taken into custody for a second time.
Zimmerman's jail stint ended a few days later, when he was released after posting the required 10% of his $1 million bond.
In July 2012, Zimmerman gave his first public interview to Fox News' "The Sean Hannity Show." During that interview, Zimmerman stated he would not have done anything differently the night of the shooting.
In April of 2013, Zimmerman waived his right to a "Stand Your Ground" pretrial immunity hearing.
In early May, Zimmerman's defense lawyers and prosecutors faced off in a pivotal hearing. A judge declared that most of the information regarding Martin's and Zimmerman's background would be barred from the trial, including Martin's school suspension history.
