(CNN) — A judge in Florida set bond for George Zimmerman at $1 million on Thursday.

It was unclear how quickly Zimmerman could post the bond and be released from jail.

His attorney argued that Zimmerman should not be jailed because the state’s case is weak and his claim of self-defense is strong.
