ORLANDO, FL (AP) - A Florida judge will weigh several factors in deciding whether to set a second bond for the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin.

The judge on Friday will consider if George Zimmerman is a flight risk or a threat to the community. Most importantly, Zimmerman will have to persuade the judge he won't be deceptive again.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman's $150,000 bond earlier this month when prosecutors told the judge Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about how much money they had during an April bond hearing.

Prosecutors said a website Zimmerman created for his legal defense had raised $135,000 at the time of his first bond hearing. Zimmerman and his wife didn't mention the money then.
