George Zimmerman's attorney says his client was confused and fearful when he allowed his wife to mislead court officials about the couple's finances.
Attorney Mark O'Mara wrote Monday on a website run by Zimmerman's legal team that he would file a motion asking for another bond hearing. A day earlier, Zimmerman returned to jail because his $150,000 bond was revoked.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. He claims he shot the teen in self-defense.
Prosecutors say the Zimmermans deceived the court during an April bond hearing when Zimmerman's wife testified they had limited funds. Prosecutors say the Zimmermans really had raised at least $135,000 from a website.
A judge ordered Zimmerman back into custody and says he will hold a hearing so Zimmerman can explain himself.
