George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, was booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility Tuesday on one count of perjury.
Deputies arrested Shellie Zimmerman, 25, where she was living around 3:30 p.m. and has since bonded out.
The bond was set at $1,000.
Earlier this month, prosecutors accused Shellie of lying to the court during a bond hearing for her husband in April. Shellie testified by phone about how much money they had, which turned out to be much more than originally claimed.
According to the probable cause affidavit, investigators looked into the financial records of George, Shellie, and George’s sister.
Investigators said the records showed that Shellie transferred more than $74,000 from George’s account to hers.It was in recorded phone calls between George and Shellie, while he was in jail, that officials heard them discuss their finances and the transferring of money, investigators said.
