Shellie Zimmerman Owes Another Apology
Shellie Zimmerman, wife of George Zimmerman, was charged with felony perjury, which carried a possible sentence of five years in prison. Before his arrest in April 2012, George Zimmerman opened a website and asked people to give him money for a legal defense. After his arrest and while in jail awaiting his bond hearing, George and Shellie’s phone calls were recorded. They spoke in code regarding the amount of money given to George through PayPal, and transfers of same into various accounts and a safety deposit box.
At George’s first bond hearing, Shellie misrepresented her knowledge of that money. She testified that the couple had no money, although more than $130,000 was received, and Shellie used over $35,000 to pay personal debts and $3,500 to George’s parents.
On August 28, 2013, Shellie agreed to a plea deal. Shellie Zimmerman had no prior criminal record, and Assistant State Attorney John Guy of Jacksonville agreed to allow her to plead guilty to the lesser charge. Shellie was sentenced to one-year probation, fines, 100 hours of community service, and a letter of apology to Judge Lester.
Since then, Shellie has appeared in the media, filed for divorce from George, and called the cops to report that George threatened her and her dad while carrying a firearm.
In setting the slate clean for a fresh start, there is one more matter that Shellie has left undone. She owes Tracy Martin an apology. The video below speaks for itself.
