Shellie Zimmerman arrested on suspicion of perjury (George Zimmerman's wife)
ITV ^ | June 12, 2012

Posted on 06/12/2012 1:37:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Florida State Attorney's office has announced the wife of George Zimmerman - the defendant in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin - has been arrested on suspicion of perjury.

Her husband stands accused of second-degree murder after shooting the unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin dead, in what he says was self-defence, after claiming he had been attacked.

Who didn't see this coming? This is how they'll squeeze him to take a plea deal.

There we go. 2nd degree won’t get us a conviction, so let’s get these Zimmermans on jaywalking!

What do you call it when a person lies to a judge under oath?

This portion of the wound is entirely self inflicted, at least from where I sit.

Refraining from speculation under oath is NOT lying.

This is how the left does it - trump up charges then hope for a procedural technicality to make stick.

Unfortunately George gave them the opening. But some of us won't forget what this entire farce is really all about.

George Zimmerman will not see this nightmare end until he agrees to plead guilty to something and receives a jail sentence. Martin's family, the race hustlers and the corrupt leftwing media will have it no other way. Riots would 'erupt' in the black community should Zimmerman be tried on the evidence and found innocent. If he had children, they would have been taken away by the state to help him reconsider his 'not guilty' plea. Instead, they go after his wife. I'm sure the leftwing media will celebrate. Welcome to Obama's America.

I have to wonder if the Judge actually looked at the timeline of when donations were made and when Mrs or Mr Z actually logged into the acct. If you don’t open the paypal emails, the title line only tells you that you have a payment...not the amount of it. I would also be interested in how much was remitted by “echeck”, those take almost a week to clear. It is possible that they were not aware of the balance when they were in front of the judge.

If she’s found guilty, I might believe that she perjured herself. Until then, she’s innocent. Is she guilty because she’s the spouse of George Zimmerman? Is that how it works?

telling a judge you are penniless when you know you have more than 100K in the bank IS lying. And that is what she has been arrested for.

Had these 2 lovebirds just frikkin’ told the truth to the judge about the money, both could be enjoying a margarita tonight on the veranda.

If the state keeps pursuing him this way they're going to get riots, anyway.

Excuse me!? Suspicion of Perjury? Suspicion!

These people are definitely playing hardball. The Zimmerman’s may be the primary participants in this power play. But I believe it is also aimed at the rest of us when you get down to brass tacks.

The ultimate goal though is the total subjugation of the rest of the citizenry. Citizenry... Hah, they intend on us becoming their slaves. It’s not enough that they want to confiscate the rewards of our hard work by taxes, they also want us to cower when they walk by and give a sneer or hard look.

And if we have the temerity to defend ourselves when we are attacked then we must be destroyed in such a manner that no one will want to go through that same thing.

Maybe someone familiar with the process can tell us the context of the question - do judges typically simply ask what your entire net worth is, or do they ask how much is available for bond?

If the latter, I can easily understand Zimmerman truthfully answering as he did, not knowing how he could legally use the money contributed to his PayPal account.

And if so this is all BS.

She said she currently didn’t know how much. She gave the court the name of the person who did know.

The court ignored that piece of information and Angela Corey went even MORE nuts.

They don’t gave 100k in the bank. They had a PayPal account which they apparently aren’t clear about how can be used.

You don’t tell a judge you have assets when you don’t know in what manner they can be legally employed.

Except that Judge Lester didn't give GZ an opportunity to say anything at the bond revocation hearing. In fact Lester didn't even give GZ the opportunity to be there, or to prepare for the prosecutor's dishonest motion.

When Shellie was testifying at the first bond hearing, she clearly gave the judge the means to find out how much money was in the PayPal account, and he wasn't interested. For all we know, she thought they were asking about any separate money she had. She also may have thought that the money was only for legal representation or for their living expenses, since that is what the donations were for. Would she know if it was fraud to use it for bail? Clearly, George didn't want to use it for bail.

It’s what Judges do. They judge.

In this case, we have one who’s trying to force Zimmerman to take this off the docket by caving in and pleading guilty to a crime he did not commit. This is what a lynching looks like in the 21st century. And there is no shortage of FReepers who think this is just fine.

No. The judge determined that there was sufficient evidence to support the arrest on perjury charges. So he had her arrested.

It’s what Judges do. They judge.

And with as many tools as the modern justice system makes available, if a judge wants you in jail, then to jail you go.

And on top of it all we've made judges political beasts.

Angela Corey needs to be arrested for fraud on the court - because she deleted the portion of the transcript showing that Shellie Zimmerman offered to call the person who could say exactly how much money was in that account.

Good Lord! We’ve got the Black Panthers offering a bounty for the head of George Zimmerman - celebrating their violence in the streets - and not a peep by any “law enforcement”. Yet Shellie Zimmerman is FRAMED by the prosecutor and gets arrested.

There are people who should not be allowed to procreate, people who should not be allowed to drive, and people who shouldn’t be allowed within 10 million yards of a law license. And Angela Corey is that person.

They are working REALLY, REALLY hard to cause race riots.

I am praying that Zimmerman’s lawyer nails Corey. To. The. Jail. Cell. Wall.

Well, it certainly gives the persecutor more leverage on GZ to get him to plead guilty to a crime he did not commit. “Cute wifey you have here..it would be a shame if something were to happen to her.”

From what I’ve seen you write here, that would be hunky-dory with you.

What about saying you don’t know and offering to get an exact quote of the amount by calling the person who does know?

That is what Shellie Zimmerman did - at what was not even supposed to be a bond hearing so neither she nor her husband nor her husband’s lawyer had been given adequate time to prepare for the questions sprung on them. Which is a violation of due process rights.

Of course, the judge might not remember that Shellie had offered to call and find out the exact amount - because Angela Corey had DELETED THAT PART FROM THE TRANSCRIPT, just like the prosecution refused to give in their statement of probable cause any of the blatant evidence that suggested (at the VERY LEAST) reason to doubt that the shooting was for reasons other than self-defense.

This is a very public, very blatant lynching. Pure and simple.

Welcome to Cuba.

What is happening to the judicial process in Florida? I hope that neither Shellie nor George cave to these vile creatures. What’s the website for their legal defense fund again?

Meanwhile the NYC madam who reportedly netted millions from a prostitution ring just had her bail reduced to $250,000 by another judge’s ruling. I’m sure she didn’t disclose all her assets either. Some of the clients she had are taking care of her I bet.

The Zimmermans don’t have those kind of friends it seems.

The whole point here is DID THEY KNOW.

Had they logged in and found out that they had $132,000 in an account?

Obviously the prosecution knew and so did Trayvon’s parents. How come the Judge wasn’t told about the money by the DA or by the fact that the Martin’s were suing Zimmerman for damages.

This should have all been outed in the court room — maybe they’ll arrest his lawyer next!!!

does coding messages to prevent a government out to get you perjury...

in a just world, the zimmermans would have nothing to fear... perjury to save one’s life and fortune from a tyrannical government seems logical...

i would vote to acquit....

We need to pass a law that removes immunity for judges. In the meantime, are we able to contact Judge Lester and give him a piece of our minds?

Are prosecutors immune? Who is able to file a motion to have Angela Corey’s law license revoked? Are we able to contact her and give her a piece of our minds?

Back in January of 2010 I said that if we didn’t stand up for the rule of law, we would soon see “The Dark Knight” right here in the USA. We’re rapidly approaching that point.

I believe this is the MILD version of how Obama intends to impose martial law. Bill Clinton is right: we have 6 months to save the world. If the Lord doesn’t hand us over to our own depravity.

Perhaps someday the wheels of justice will pick you out to attempt to grind you to a pulp and I suspect you’ll hope that folks don’t make incorrect assumptions about you deserving what you get.

Have you enjoyed any margaritas with Nifong or Corey lately? You might feel right at home with them.

Evidence , coded phone calls= guilt.
Charges are based on phone conversations.
Who were the Cryptologists and what code were the Zimmermans using.
George,”when I get out we should get a thousand miles away.”
Shellie, “ No , we should go twice that far.”

The conclusion is they really had $200,000.00 in the bank.

Unfortunately, the imperial judge refused to give GZ and SZ an opportunity to explain what they were talking about. They have a right to confront their accusers and have time to respond to charges. It’s called due process.

And since the prosecutors edited out Shellie’s offer to call the brother-in-law to get an exact amount of the PayPal account in their motion to revoke GZ’s bail, I wouldn’t trust them as far as I could throw them.

Yep, in the transcript she's asked how much money is in the PayPal acct, she says she doesn't know but her brother-in-law does, and offers to get him. The judge does not follow up. She did not perjure herself.
