Act II Scene I Shellie Zimmerman arrested
Poor dear, who doesn't know that prison phone calls can't be evidence & aren't recorded.
"She is accused of having lied in a bond hearing for her husband, claiming that the family had little money and that bail should be set low. It was. But it was revoked when it became known that the Zimmermans had access to at least $200,000 raised on a website"
Now his arrest is contentious but is her perjury contentious?
The Zimmermans spoke about the money "in code" during recorded jailhouse phone calls, prosecutors said. Then, Shellie Zimmerman told the judge during her husband's bond hearing that the couple was essentially destitute.
"It is apparent that [Shellie] Zimmerman testified untruthfully at the bond hearing," the judge writes in his order. "The Defendant also testified, but did not alert the Court to the misinformation."
"Had the Court been made aware of the true financial circumstances at the bond hearing, the bond decision might have been different," Lester wrote. After finding out about the discrepancy, the judge said he was left with two options: Increasing Zimmerman's bond, or revoking it."
Small matters in the daily soap opera of US life!
