A week after George Zimmerman was charged with murder in the second degree, a judge set his bond at $150,000 during a hearing Friday morning in Sanford, Fla.

Under the conditions of the bond, he cannot have any contact with the family of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, whom Zimmerman, 28, fatally shot in February, reports CNN.

However, at the hearing, Zimmerman made a statement to Martin’s parents: “I wanted to say. I am sorry for the loss of your son.”

Other conditions of the bond include Zimmerman be monitored by GPS and have to contact authorities every three days. The judge also said he would not be released Friday.
