Categories: Crime

George Zimmerman's wife, Shellie Zimmerman, now finds herself behind bars in the same facility where her husband is being held on second-degree murder charges. Seminole County Sheriff's deputies arrested her this afternoon on a single perjury charge. The charge stems from accusations that the Zimmermans lied to the court during a bond hearing.

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 For that, his bond was revoked and he was ordered back to jail.

Shellie Zimmerman is being held on $1,000 bond in Sanford's John E. Polk Correctional Facility, the same facility as her husband. According to the Orlando Sentinel, she is in the process of posting that bond.

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.

Yes they would move!! A rich black is just as a ghetto as a poor  black person.You think Tiger Woods would have wanted Whitney Houston as his neighbor no way !! As soon as a black family moves to any neighborhood it automatically losses value it suddenly becomes the police second home and eventually all the non blacks move out and it becomes a drug infested ghetto .name one neighboorhood in america in any state or city in which the majority are black which is crimeless NONE

Poor USA used to be the strongest and richest  nation in the world but when the government has to spend billions in govt assistance for 12% of the nation(blacks african american) to support little monkeys and chimpanzees who will grow up to be criminals carjackers cokeheads prostitutes . I have more respect for an iraqi or afghan soldier than for an african american ghetto garbage.

He's not nearly as rotten as you, jackass. At least he HAS a soul.

As opposed to the punk ass loser wannabe hall monitor who was too incompetent to become a law enforcement official, who was under the influence of two psychotropic drugs the night of the murder, had an arrest record that included domestic assault, resisting arrest and assaulting a cop, who had a history of repeated calls to 911 for 'suspicious Black youths' in his neighborhood, who ignored the directive of the 911 responder to stop following Martin, and who disregarded Neighborhood Watch policies by being under the influence of drugs on duty and by carrying a loaded weapon, and who has lied about the extent of his injuries he claims he sustained during the confrontation with the unarmed teen that he precipitated, and now we learn had the gall to lie to a judge during his bail hearing? Is this upstanding citizen you're referring to? Offer ONE shred of proof to suggest Trayvon Martin initiated the confrontation with Zimmerman. You can't.

Right; because lying your ass off to a judge during your bail hearing on a murder charge is an ideal way to establish your credibility and innocence. BTW; what chance at justice did Zimmerman offer Trayvon Martin? The same chance you would likely have offered; a bullet to the chest.

This is the most ignorant sentence I have ever read. White children smoke weed too. I know because I am white and I was a kid once. No, I was not a thug either.
