George Zimmerman's Wife Arrested For Perjury
Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman, will face consequences for telling lies. Mrs. Zimmerman was arrested on one count of perjury Tuesday (June 12), and was transported to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. It is unclear whether or not she has been released on bond. The wife of the 28-year-old accused killer of Trayvon Martin, has come under fire for helping her husband lie about their financial status. Although they claimed to have been in dire need for economic assistance, and therefore requested that Zimmerman receive a bond amount, the couple actually had $135,000 in their bank account, donated by the public via a now defunct website. Although his 25-year-old wife is free to roam about as she pleases, the former neighborhood watch captain is not so lucky. He remains in police custody after Judge Kenneth Lester revoked his bond, but has been granted a new hearing, scheduled to take place on June 29.
