George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, returned to jail Sunday two days after a judge revoked his bail over questions about his finances. Zimmerman wore a plaid shirt, jeans, tennis shoes and longer hair than in his internationally known mug shots. He arrived at the Seminole County Jail in Sanford, Fla., accompanied by law enforcement officers and with his hands cuffed behind his back. He did not respond to reporters' questions, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Spurred by a Freedom of Information Act request from CNN, the government Wednesday released mug shots of indicted former presidential candidate John Edwards. Edwards pleaded not guilty in a North Carolina federal court earlier this month to charges that he funneled dollars intended for his campaign for use in an effort to shield his relationship with mistress Rielle Hunter from becoming public. A grand jury charged Edwards, 58, with six felony counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and evading laws that limit federal campaign limits.

A federal judge on Friday turned down media requests to release mug shots and search warrants in the case against Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner, accused of killing six people and wounding 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). Loughner's attorney, Judy Clarke, asked that the mug shots be sealed, arguing that releasing them served no public interest. District Judge Larry A. Burns, assigned to hear the case, said he had no authority to order the release of the mug shots or to seal them.

The news spread quickly among neighbors, family members and organizers in this working-class city that for months has been thrust into the national spotlight. Some phoned each other or chatted on the street, while others headed to City Hall to spread the news: eight former and current Bell officials had been arrested. Among residents, many of whom rose up in angry protest amid revelations about a huge salary and loan scandal, there was a sense of celebration and relief. Some saw the arrests as a pivotal moment that would finally allow the city to move forward, while others wondered what would happen next.

I WAS DRESSED PERFECTLY for my mug shot, which may have been part of the problem. I wore a lovely silk-and-rayon, short-sleeved Tommy Bahama shirt. Very understated. A muted pumpkin color with a tasteful palm and an ibis on the back. My good faded jeans, a little tight, and my $2,500 ostrich-skin cowboy boots. I looked like a South Florida personal injury lawyer, sans ponytail, dressed up to look like a South Florida smuggler, which, like I said, couldn't have helped matters.
