Background: Shellie Zimmerman is George Zimmerman's wife.
Involvement in case: Shellie was charged in June with perjury after prosecutors said that she lied about their finances during George's bond hearing. The State Attorney's office alleged that Shellie falsely testified they had no money. In fact, the state alleges, recorded calls from the jail reveal she and her husband previously discussed how to transfer some of more than $125,000 then raised from a donations website into one or more accounts they controlled.
Shellie's lawyer asked for the case to be dismissed but a judge denied that motion. Her next court date is July 2013, according to court dockets.
