The wife of George Zimmerman, the wannabe cop who shot unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin, pleaded guilty today to one count of misdemeanor perjury for lying about the couple’s finances. The convicted felon agreed to a plea deal of one year probation and 100 hours of community service.
As part of Shellie Zimmerman’s conditions of probation, she cannot own or carry a firearm and she must get permission to own any weapon. If she moves or changes jobs, she must notify her probation officer.
She must also pay $263 in fines and $50 a month for the cost of her supervision.
Shellie Zimmerman admitted she lied about the amount of assets available to cover Zimmerman’s bond during a bond hearing in Sanford, Fl., in 2012.
At the hearing, she told Judge Kenneth Lester, who was then presiding over her husband’s case, that the couple could not afford to pay his bond. In fact, the Zimmerman’s had over $100,000 in cash donations which George, who was in jail, instructed his wife to transfer into an account controlled by her.
Prosecutors intercepted phone calls placed from Shellie to George Zimmerman at the Sanford jail days before the bond hearing. Recordings of the phone calls were placed at an emergency hearing requested by the Florida State Prosecutor’s office to revoke Zimmerman’s bond.
She was later arrested on June 12, 2012, and jailed in Seminole County before posting bond.
