ORLANDO, FL (AP) - The Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who shot an unarmed teenager to death may be out of jail, but he isn't all that free.

George Zimmerman can't leave Seminole County, he'll be electronically monitored and he has a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. Not only that, he can't open a bank account, obtain a passport or set foot on the grounds of the local airport. And this time his bond is $1 million.

Zimmerman, who's charged with second-degree murder, was released on a $150,000 bond in April. That bond was revoked last month after prosecutors presented evidence that Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about their finances.

Shortly before his release today, the Rev. Al Sharpton criticized Zimmerman for raising money through online donations.

Sharpton says a website asking people who think they would have done the same thing to send money. Sharpton says it shows "no remorse over the loss of human life."
