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.

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.

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 she’s the spouse of George Zimmerman? Is that how it works?”

YES

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.

In view of what Zimmerman's wife actually said under oath, today's action by the prosecution and the judge is utterly disgusting.

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.

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.

And Trayvon Martin is still a drug dealing, thieving, thrice expelled-from-school, worthless thug who tried to kill George Zimmerman when caught casing homes. Nothing changes.

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.

This whole case is starting to remind me of say... Waco, Elian Gonzales, and other cases too numerous to count where the government will do whatever it needs to, make any ruling it needs to justify the outcome. Hence the reason I've said all along that Zimmerman This is an ongoing lesson to those planning on starting their own little "riots". When they have an agenda, DON'T play by their rules.

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.

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.

Show us the exact quotes that substantiate what you have stated. If not, then you should retract what you have stated.

If you don’t open the paypal emails, the title line only tells you that you have a payment...not the amount of it.

FWIW, the amount is in the subject line. At least when I receive payments it is...

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: “It’s 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.

I don't blame Shellie for being evasive with the Judge. Her husband has been illegally incarcerated, based on a false Affidavit filed by Angela Corey. I'll believe Alan Dershowitz' analysis of the facts long before the tired old hag whose press conference sounded more like a eulogy for Trayvon than an announcement of charges. Watch it here: http://www.firstcoastnews.com/topstories/article/252181/566/Watch-Angela-Coreys-Press-Conference-On-Zimmerman-Charges

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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 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.

Getting Zimmed...

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.

Based on this link, it would seem that the transfers are what the judge took issue with, not the Paypal donations.
