(CBS/AP) ORLANDO, Fla. - George Zimmerman left a Florida jail today for the second time, less than 24 hours after a judge set his bond at $1 million for fatally shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman left the Seminole County jail Friday afternoon wearing a white dress shirt and a jacket.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester granted Zimmerman bond for a second time on Thursday. The judge revoked Zimmerman's $150,000 bond last month after prosecutors presented evidence that he misled the court about his finances.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin on the night of Feb. 26, 2012 in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. He claimed the shooting was self-defense under the state's "stand your ground" law.
