I believe that if a person break’s the law, they should be treated like everyone else and charged with the crime. George Zimmerman’s wife was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly lying at his bond hearing about the couple’s finances. Lying under oath is a crime. I’m not a lawyer, I’m justa dumb jock….hahaaa, but I think she should be charged. What do you think should happen in this situation?
Shellie N. Zimmerman, 25, faces a perjury charge, according to Jackie Barnard, spokeswoman for the State Attorney’s office for the Fourth Judicial District of Florida. She met conditions for a $1,000 bond and was released Tuesday afternoon, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
At her husband’s April 20 bond hearing, Shellie Zimmerman was asked whether the couple had financial means to assist in the defense.
“Uhm, not — not that I’m aware of,” she replied, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Monday.
She also testified under oath she was not aware of how much had been raised from a website soliciting cash for George Zimmerman’s defense in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17, in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense. Prosecutors alleged that George Zimmerman, 28, actually had about $135,000.
According to the affidavit, prepared by an investigator with the State Attorney’s office, the Zimmermans discussed finances via phone before the April 20 bond hearing.
Those talks included the transfer of money from George Zimmerman’s account to accounts of his sister and wife, according to the affidavit.
Records show $47,000 was transferred from George Zimmerman’s account to his sister’s account from April 16 and 17, authorities allege. Shellie Zimmerman transferred more than $74,000 from her husband’s account to her account from April 16 to April 19, the affidavit states.
George Zimmerman asked his wife in jail calls to “pay off all the bills,” including an American Express bill and a Sam’s Club card, prosecutors allege.
On April 24, after his release on bond, Shellie Zimmerman transferred more than $85,500 from her account back to George Zimmerman’s account, according to the affidavit.
Shellie Zimmerman will be arraigned July 31.
