SANFORD (CBSMiami) – In a surprise move, George Zimmerman took the witness stand at his bond reduction hearing Friday morning and made a brief statement directed at the parents of Trayvon Martin, saying he was sorry for the loss of their son. Minutes later, a judge set a bond of $150,000 for Zimmerman, setting the stage for his release from jail.

Attorney Mark O’Mara said Zimmerman wanted to make a brief statement, and after he was sworn in, Zimmerman was led to the witness box in shackles.

“I wanted to say that I am sorry for the loss of your son,” he said, addressing Martin’s father and mother, who were present in the courtroom. “I did not know how old he was, I thought he was a little bit younger than I am, and I did not know if he was armed or not.”
