George Zimmerman's wife arrested, charged with perjury
Earlier this month, a judge threw George Zimmerman back in jail, after prosecutors said Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about their finances.
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.
The arrest comes after prosecutors in George Zimmerman's case told Judge Kenneth Lester that Shellie Zimmerman lied about her husband's finances, in order to conceal about $135,000 from the court.
This is a developing story. Check back later for updates.

Well they let Casey Anthony's parents perjur themselves over and over on the stand with not even a slap on the wrist so they are trying to save face here by showing the public they mean business, especially since the town has been raked over the coals about how this case has been handled.

People who can't control themselves should be the first to advocate strict gun control -- see how readily available firearms can complicate your life?
If Zimmerman hadn't had a gun, it's doubtful that he would have followed the guy & confronted him armed with only a knife or a golf club or his fists -- he would have just called the cops & let them handle it.
But no. It's calm, peaceful people like me who want strict gun control -- the hotheads have no interest in protecting themselves from their own ungovernable tempers.

How did this woman think she could transfer over a hundred grand between bank accounts without anyone noticing? She is looking at the camera with defiance. "I ditten' do nuthin'."
What to do with incredibly dumb, deceitful American people. And the funny part is they think they are so wily and smart.

Unfortunately in Florida these 2 will probably become celebrities and live off this murder for the rest of their lives. And they will both be found innocent by those Casey Anthony loving juries down there.

Story going around the courthouse is that the DA got George to roll on his wife. He told Georgie Porgie that Shellie Bellie could transfer the money to a private account and he couldn't do a thing.

She looks EXACTLY like I thought she would!
Wonder if George will get a hot looking wife if he's found not guilty?

I've been wondering: does anyone know if Zimmerman lying at the bond hearing is something that could be brought up in the actual trial? Could the prosecutor say, "he was caught lying once already to the court, so how can we believe anything he says now?"

They look like one another. From those eyebrows and his weightloss, I'd say meth was involved. Was he drug tested?

Drug tested? If they drug tested everyone they took into custody, FL would be broke. Anyway, probably a huge percentage have traces in their systems so what would be the point?

They have to find them guilty of perjury - not just accused. But if found guilty in time, it could be used against him.
How stupid are they? This changes the whole ballgame. I appreciate the reveal.

That's exactly what will occur.

Well they're testing everyone receving TANF. It would make much more sense to test the murderers and gun owners.

Do you think the state has a case to try them for fraud? Didn't it ask specifically for donations for legal expenses? (can't check, the site's been disabled)

Au contraire. A relative of mine was charged with and convicted of perjury when he accidentally lied about money to the authorities. He misunderstood when a judge asked him if he had any money. He thought the judge meant money in the bank, but the judge meant money in his pocket. My relative is a nobody who was being arraigned for a pot possession charge and the judge immediately charged him with perjury.
Do NOT fuck around with the law in FL. The state's biggest industry is its penal system. They will charge you with anything and march your ass off to jail.

I forgot about that, R28.

The Zimmermans were really playing the prosecution, the state and even their own defense attorneys for fools. This alone would probably cause prosecutors to file perjury charges. It could be part of their prosecution strategy.

A prosecutor can mention anything he wants, R20. That's why judges say thinks like 'dismissed' if it's not allowable.

I just read up more on this. Apparently they were caught using some code language about hiding the money, so saying they made a mistake or he simply forgot about the money is bullshit. Plus he told his wife to use the money to pay off old credit card bills and personal expenses. This is money that was given to them by supporters to help pay for his defense and the two of them used it like lottery winnings.

Well, its kind of nice that those donations will end up getting them in more trouble. Added bonus: the moronic donors got totally dissed.

The best part? This money that was given to them to help pay for the defense is ALL GONE! They blew through it like a bunch of drunken sailors, going on shopping sprees, paying off cars and debts, stuffing their face at Golden Coral. He's back begging for money again to pay his lawyers.
