Zimmerman knew he had the money in his PayPal account. I don’t know how they intend to prove his wife knew.
Paypal is NOT a bank account. It takes 3 days to transfer the money, and is limited to $500 a month unless verification is made, which takes more time than Zimmerman had at the time of his bond hearing. Most credit card merchants make you wait between 2 weeks and 30 days to receive payments (or donations). PayPal is a holding area. The Zimmermans were stunned by the amounts that came in and didn't know what to do with it. the day after the bond hearing they notified their attorney, who notified the court and Reichminister Corey. Every penny was disclosed. There is absolutely no reason for the judge to freak out. If he wanted to, he could have added $25,000 or $50,000 to the bond amount, but for what reason? Either way this is a disgusting miscarriage of justice.
From the probable cause affidavit:
At this point we don't know if the scratch in question came from the Paypal account or from family or is simply the result of common frugality. As to Shellie Z's legal predicament, I don't know which would be worse.
Conceivably, those multiple 999* amounts could also have federal significance.
I don’t trust the “justice” system in this case.
