George Zimmerman’s Wife Gets Perjury Charges

Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman, the man on trial for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, was arrested on June 12th on charges that she lied to the court in her husband’s bond hearing. This comes after Zimmerman himself was ordered back to jail for providing false information at the bond hearing as well. Both individuals are accused of lying to the court about their financial resources. According to authorities, Zimmerman’s bond of $150,000 (making his bail payment $15,000) was set in response to claims that the family did not have the financial resources to provide a high bail amount. However, it was later revealed by Zimmerman’s attorney that the family had access to as much as $135,000 at the time of the bond hearing. The funds were acquired from a crude PayPal website set up by the Zimmermans to collect money for George Zimmerman’s defense. George Zimmerman’s next bond hearing is set for June 29th.
