George Zimmerman just might be the luckiest killer in America. He nearly got off for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, gets to spend the next few months out of prison while he awaits a trial date, and has received more than $200,000 in donations over the last two weeks. According to his lawyer, Mike O’Mara, who created a new website for Zimmerman, nearly $50,000 of the funds raised will cover his living expenses, while the remaining $150,000 was turned over to an independent administrator.

This new number marks the second time that the 28-year-old has received loads of money from supporters. His now defunct website, TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com brought in roughly the same amount in donations which he used to post $150,000 bond. In total the former neighborhood watch volunteer has raised nearly $500,000.

O’Mara entered a “not guilty” plea on behalf of his client earlier this week, and waved Zimmerman’s right to a speedy trial. He is due back in court August 8.
