George Zimmerman's Wife Arrested on Perjury Charge
Prosecutors contended that both George and Shellie lied about their financial situation during George's initial bond hearing. In particular, prosecutors say Shellie, who is 25, tried to conceal from the court about $135,000 that her husband had collected from online supporters.
She was arrested at her residence in Stanford, Florida, today around 3:30 p.m.
George Zimmerman also failed to acknowledge that he had a second passport. For that, his bond was revoked and he was ordered back to jail.
George Zimmerman is awaiting trail on second-degree murder charges after he killed unarmed Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin during a confrontation in the gated community where the girlfriend of Martin's father lives. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense.
