Actually, Mrs. Zimmerman pleaded guilty to perjury.

Mr. Zimmerman is still not guilty and will remain that way. FBHO.



(CNN) -- Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman -- who was acquitted of second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin's death -- pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of perjury.

She will be placed on probation for one year, is required to perform 100 hours of community service, and must pay court costs. She also must file a letter of apology within 30 days to Judge Kenneth Lester, who presided over her husband's case at the time the perjury was committed.

Prosecutors said Shellie Zimmerman lied when she told Lester during an April 2012 bond hearing for her husband that the family was indigent. In fact, they argue, George Zimmerman actually had about $135,000 at the time.

smart business decision on her part, turn a possible felony into a misdemeanor. If she went to trail she would have had to face the anger surrounding the murder trial verdict and not just her charges.

smart move and now they can move on.

After all the Zimmerman's have been through, it's still highly unlikely that the state prosecutors come out and say they will drop the current or any charges pending against his wife.
I don't interest myself in "why". I think more often in terms of "when", sometimes "where" ? Always "how much" ?

Zimmerman didn't deserve everything he was put through. But he and his wife have done some stupid stuff too.

Those code words used over the phone must have been pretty damning because judging from the transcript she seems legitimately ignorant. Either that or she was scared of the court and decided it wasn't worth the risk to take it to trial.

Did they really have that much money... or is that counting the donations made they didn't know about at that time.

The thing is that everyone knows how much these trials cost. It can be more than you think it will. To charge someone with this is practically unheard of and just smacks of bitterness and revenge. The taxpayer never spent a dime on them so what damage was done? Ergo, there was no real fraud.

They violated Zimmerman's rights when they tried to hide what they knew about Trayvon's phone conversation with his illiterate female friend. That was the crux of the entire case! Trayvon's state of mind at the time! He had a right to that information under our system of justice.

People gibbering about civil rights don't even know what it means anymore.

As far as I know, she never lied. She told them she didn't know how much money was in his legal defense fund and they pressured her to answer a question that she couldn't.

She didnt lie. She said "I dont know exactly" and offered to get the person that did to testify. this was a plea deal to avoid a costly trial.

When one lies for the benefit of the State, you get a pass. Or so it would seem. The only ones who didn't pull any punches were the police officers whose career depends on not getting nailed for lying on the stand. For the rest of that parade of fools for the State the truth was a relative term.

I saw no perjury in that transcript. How can you prove someone "knows" something? Do they get the "Men Who Stare At Goats" there to read minds? Fucking stupid. If anybody needs to be charged with perjury, it should be the state's witnesses. Like that fat, illiterate girlfriend.

We've got the exact legal system that prosecutors and judges want us to have.

In the Volokh Conspiracy post you link, the author writes:

As a former Chicago prosecutor myself (and the father of a Brooklyn prosecutor) I don’t think prosecutors are bad guys. But I do think they respond to the incentive structure of the system in which they work.


At this point, I'd argue to the author that he's being disingenious. The prosecutors ARE being "bad guys" when they use that discretion nearly entirely to their advantage, and neither to the mission they are sworn to uphold (the fair administration of justice) versus their own equities.
