George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie Zimmerman, was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and a year’s probation after pleadeding guilty to a misdemeanor perjury charge Wednesday, the Huffington Post reports. According to prosecutors, during George’s bail hearing, Shellie lied about she and her husband’s personal finances. Although she told prosecutors they were broke, it was later revealed that thousands of dollars were being transferred between the Zimmermans’ and Shellie’s sister’s bank accounts. Ironically, when she pled guilty in court for lying to protect her husband, he was nowhere to be found.
During a recent interview with Good Morning America, Shellie revealed that she’s having a hard time coping with the fact that he failed to demonstrate the same support that she’d shown for him.
“I always want my husband’s support,” she said in the interview.
When asked if she and George were still together, she declined to answer.
“I’m not going to answer that.”
She went on to reveal that she needs time to think about whether or not she wants to stay married to George. Shellie also said that she wasn’t home when the tragic altercation between Trayvon and George occurred.
“I was staying at my father’s house. We had gotten into an argument the night before and I left.”
Although she maintains that her husband’s innocence, she expressed remorse for Travyon’s parents.
“I can’t even begin to understand the grief a parent experiences when they lose a child.”
