The website that George Zimmerman set up to help raise money for his legal defense in Trayvon Martin’s shooting has been disabled.

The website http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman was no longer functioning as of Tuesday.

It was created almost two weeks ago by Zimmerman’s family to thank his supporters and to receive donations from anyone who wanted to help with his legal defense.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin in February. He has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense.

A call to Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, wasn’t immediately returned on Wednesday.

O’Mara has hinted that he will ask Zimmerman to be declared indigent. That would allow taxpayers to pay for his legal bills.

Any income from the website would make that process more difficult.
