Just 24 hours after George Zimmerman's attorney appeared on Fox 35 News to say his client is broke and needs donations, thousands of dollars have come in.

New paperwork shows that 160 people have donated $5,200 to Zimmerman's defense fund since Thursday, when Mark O'Mara talked with Good Day Orlando anchor Amy Kaufeldt about his client's finances.

O'Mara and his team have filed a motion to delay Zimmerman's murder trial from June to November.

"I would like nothing better than to have this case tried in June," O'Mara said. "I would like to be back to my life; I would like to get back to my other clients; I'd like to move forward. But I'm not going to try this case when I'm unprepared."

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch commander, is accused of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in Sanford.
