Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murdering Trayvon Martin, has a bond hearing scheduled for Friday, April 20, 2012. Whether Zimmerman is allowed to leave Seminole County as he awaits trial, and how he will remain safe, are two questions that likely are going to be at the center of the hearing at the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center, legal experts say.

MIAMI (WVLT) -- Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The medical records were part of evidence released Tuesday that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman. He has entered a plea of not guilty and claims self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting. A message left Tuesday evening with Zimmerman's attorney was not immediately returned

Zimmerman was treated Feb. 27 at Altamonte Family Practice. No one answered the phone at the practice Tuesday evening.

ABC News first reported Zimmerman's injuries from the medical records. Some of the injuries were previously reported by The Associated Press based on video of Zimmerman at a jail sally port.
