Skip to comments.Shellie Zimmerman arrested on suspicion of perjury (George Zimmerman's wife)
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.
No, what’s next is “take the plea deal or we’ll release your wife into the general prison population.”
Waiving “right to speedy trial” was a _bad_ move.
> They dont gave 100k in the bank. They had a PayPal account which they apparently arent clear about how can be used.
> You dont tell a judge you have assets when you dont know in what manner they can be legally employed.
Their big mistake, IMHO, that they didn’t tell their own lawyer about the monies. He could have advised them how to handle the question from the judge.
” Is she guilty because shes the spouse of George Zimmerman? Is that how it works?”
I’m really beginning to hate this judge. He is determined to GET ZIMMERMAN no matter how, no matter what.
” They dont gave 100k in the bank. They had a PayPal account which they apparently arent clear about how can be used.
You dont tell a judge you have assets when you dont know in what manner they can be legally employed.”
Correct, and where is Zimmerman’s lawyer, anyway?
I watched this entire testimony live.
Shellie specifically stated
she was in a undisclosed location.
she did know of the online fundraising account.
she not know the balance of the account while sitting on the stand.
she could contact George’s brother (or brother in law) who had direct access to the account.
she had not had contact with George’s brother in almost a week.
she could give the phone number to the judge, prosecutor and her lawyers, immediately.
How could she have perjured herself? I do not think the prosecutor ever asked a leading question such as “does the account have more than 10 grand in it?” or anything of the sort with a specific dollar amount.
We should all be very afraid.
How can anyone not see what the state is attempting here? How many people will now hesitate to defend themselves in similar circumstances after what they see what happens to those who dare to?
Do you know that they did not tell their lawyer? I suspect that they did tell him and he was aware. I also think the fact that the original representing attorneys withdrew because of the web site and the donations was known to O’Mara from the outset. O’Mara has screwed up twice IMO first with the passports and now with this. He should have prepped and or represented his clients better.
No, they just want to stop her one-woman crime spree, and prevent her from going to other bail hearings and perjuring herself there. I wonder what she’ll say at her bail hearing.
But if he leaves, he’ll get killed by the bounty hunters.
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.
Corey is going to end up like that other Corey- flat like a pancake- when the defense counsel makes her look dumber than Marcia Clarke.
” 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. “
O’Mara better get on this case, pronto!
Listen to Bond Hearing , note around 5:30 on the video.
Zimmerman isn’t the ONLY one that’s going to have to go into hiding before this is all over.
“What do you call it when a person lies to a judge under oath?”
What do you call it when the Attorney General lies to Congress under oath?
That's all fine and swell. But according to Zimmerman's own attorney $5000 of the PayPal money was used in making bond. It's impossible to successfully argue Zimmerman didn't know he had the money or that it was unavailable to him when he used part of it.
Show us the exact quotes that substantiate what you have stated. If not, then you should retract what you have stated.
FWIW, the amount is in the subject line. At least when I receive payments it is...
Looks like Corey’s going for the Scooter Libby approach.
On a different thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2894547/posts?page=1 there is some more information about the arraignment and bail. I also added the following comment there and it’s applicable to this thread too.
This whole case is beginning to stink more and more of political level harassment.
Arraignment in six weeks and a $1,000 dollar bond? as my son would say: Its a nothingburger Dad.
In other words if there was really something there then the bail would have been higher.
Also something to think about with her being arrested, her HOME ADDRESS where she has been hiding from the public is now out in the open and the same nutcases that want to harm or kill her husband now know where to get her at.
We are THAT country!
Quote from Angela Corey at the beginning of her press conference: "It is the search for justice for Trayvon that has brought us to this moment."
WHAT ABOUT JUSTICE FOR GEORGE?
Boy, you’ve got Zim and his wife lying, guilty and convicted.
These two love birds? Were lying?
I'd say you have an agenda of your own.
BTW, how do ya do that when your fighting for your life, from corrupt government courts with political agendas and people like prosecutors like Corey?
Ya think they might be concerned while enjoying margaritas tonight on the veranda, about black racist gangs putting death bounties on their heads?
Reading your posts, I am convinced you have some kind of hidden agenda here.
One of the conditions of parole was that GZ was not allowed to consume alcohol so the entire analogy is flawed.
Well she's not in jail and George took and passed a lie detector test the night when Trayvon nearly beat him to death. So much for your worthless comment ---
Ya gotta watch who's posting here. Yup.
I really hope you end up being right but the defense counsel is making some huge mistakes and has egg all over there face right now.
do you know at any one time how much $$$ you have to the penny????
Fast and furious.
And you will notice in the perjury indictment that the part where she offers to get her brother in law is left off completely. This is Corey's MO.
In His Heaven, in full control of the unspooling of Time, which unspools NOT for Him but for US. Where are we?
I’m not going to try to defend dmz, but I do have to question the fact that the affidavit states that she transferred over $74,000.00 from George’s account to hers in the previous days leading up to the bond hearing. I’m wondering if this was personal money of theirs. That certainly wouldn’t be the paypal money, would it? I wouldn’t think they could get it that fast. Either way, her personally dealing with this money days before her testifying kind of doesn’t look good on her part. I hope they are able to survive this though.
Please give a link to the transcript quoting Mrs. Zimmerman saying they were penniless. That's right, you can't, because you made that up. IOWs it's a lie.
It’s possible Zimmerman told O’Mara, but O’Mara went on CNN before the prosecutor’s charges claiming all he was told Zimmerman had was a couple thousand dollars.
Wouldn’t be the first time this lawyer screwed up if he had been told, but that’s a big mistake for a lawyer to make. The court WILL find out this stuff.
In the 4 days previous to the hearing Shellie transfered $47,000 to the account of George' sister and $74,000 to her own account. If you can move the move on your authority, you control it.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the law.
Ask Scooter Libby, he did absolutely nothing wrong, but was convicted anyway, and his friends in high places, were silent.
Reminds me of the lesson I learned from the movie, "Breaker Morrant."
Unfortunately George gave them the opening. But some of us won't forget what this entire farce is really all about.
We've been listening to the same old song and dance for fifteen years here.
Linda Tripp illegally wiretapped. Bill Clinton's "missteps" were just about sex. Scooter Libby lied to federal agents. Charlie Rangel "forgot" his tax liabilities. Tom Delay "laundered money". Jon Corzine did not commit any financial crimes. Shellie Zimmerman "perjured". Sarah Palin committed any number of crimes while governor of Alaska. John Edwards didn't do anything wrong.
It's like re-reading the history of Stalinist Russia, without all the bloodshed. The American Stalinist/Fascists just destroy your name and your financial worth.
What a load of horse-hockey.
China’s family planning police have been known to demolish family homes and arrest the parents / grandparents of the pregnant couple until the illegal child was dead or the fines were paid.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward. ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
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.
You’re listening to explanations by the same fork-tongues who told us that Bill Clinton, Charlie Rangel and Jon Corzine didn’t commit any crimes worth jail time.
If they’ve introduced any doubt about Zimmerman’s intentions into your mind, they already own you. You’re lost.
“Riots would ‘erupt’ in the black community should Zimmerman be tried on the evidence and found innocent. “
Bring it on!!!
Time for a full blown civil war nation wide!!!!
Based on this link, it would seem that the transfers are what the judge took issue with, not the Paypal donations.
