This story is getting bizarre everyday and turning into a nightmare for George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara.
A new bombshell revelation emerge in the court filing by prosecutors. When asked by his wife whether the more than $135,000 collected from supporters through his website should be used for his bond, George Zimmerman answered “hell no.”
Judge Kenneth Lester revoked George Zimmerman’s bond on June 1, after finding that Shellie Zimmerman had lied under oath about the couple’s finances, and that George Zimmerman knew about it — but failed to inform the court when he, too, testified at his bond hearing on April 20. The couple briefly occupied the same correctional facility in Sanford, Florida, before Shellie Zimmerman was released on a $1,000 bond on Monday. The 25-year-old nursing student is charged with one count of perjury, a felony that could, if she is convicted, prevent her from obtaining a professional license in Florida.
According to the “probable cause” affidavit filed against Shellie Zimmerman, prosecutors allege that she deliberately misrepresented how much money the couple had available, while George Zimmerman’s lawyer argued for a low bond amount.
When asked by her husband’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, during the bond hearing, whether there were any “major assets” that could be reasonably liquidated to assist in coming up with money for a bond, Shellie Zimmerman answered, “none that I know of.”
