Arraignment Set for George Zimmerman's Wife

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The wife of Trayvon Martin's shooter is set to be arraigned next week in central Florida on one count of perjury after a judge said she lied about her and husband George Zimmerman's finances during a bond hearing.

The arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday. Shellie Zimmerman was arrested and charged June 12 and released the same day after posting bond. Her appearance notice does not list an attorney.

George Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in Martin's shooting. He was initially granted $150,000 bond and released. The judge in his case revoked that bond last month after state attorneys argued that both Zimmerman and his wife had lied about money raised from a website.

He has since been freed again on a new $1 million bond.

    Who said they lied? Telling the money you earned and have in the bank is different from money in a fund that was set up in a trust for defense lawyers. Mrs. Zimmerman, what is in your checking and saving account? Does not specify the trust fund for lawyer fees. They may not have felt like it was theirs to spend. I personnaly wouldn't feel it was my "income" either. Next time they may want to define income or include other funds such as donations.

      What does that have to do with the story?

    They wanted to get by as cheaply as possible. And lying seems to be the best way to do that. But if your case is in the public eye, it's a stupid thing to do. This stunt has cast a long shadow, if you'll lie about money, what eles will you lie about ?
