George Zimmerman’s Wife Arrested On Perjury Charge
George Zimmerman’s wife Shellie has been arrested on a perjury charge related to her testimony at her husband’s bond hearing back in April:
Earlier this month, a judge threw George Zimmerman, the man charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, back in Sanford’s John E. Polk Correctional Facility, after concluding he and his spouse had misled the court during an earlier bond hearing.
On Tuesday, his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, was booked into the same facility on a perjury charge.
According to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were alerted by prosecutors Tuesday that a warrant had been issued for Shellie Zimmerman, 25. She was arrested about 3:30 p.m. “at the location she was residing in Seminole County,” deputies said in a statement.
She was booked on a perjury charge, with bond set at $1,000. She is currently “in the process of posting bond,” deputies said.
Zimmerman, meanwhile, remains in jail until at least June 29th, which is the scheduled date for the new bond hearing that his attorney has requested. This doesn’t bode well for his chances of getting out I would think.
