The wife of George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, has been arrested.
Earlier today [June 12], 28-year-old Shellie Zimmerman was placed under arrest and charged for perjury after she lied under oath about her husband’s finances at George Zimmerman’s bond hearing on April 20th.
Shellie claimed she was not aware of how much George’s PayPal donations account had raised, which we later found out was over $200,000.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by investigators with the Office of State Attorney Angela Corey, 4th Judicial Circuit, who advised a warrant had been issued for the 25-year-old woman.
Deputies arrested Zimmerman around 3:30 p.m. and booked her on one count of perjury at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, the press release said. She is currently in the process of posting her $1,000 bond.
George Zimmerman is currently behind bars after turning himself in on June 3rd. His bond hearing is set for June 29th.
