Multiple jailhouse phone calls between George Zimmerman and his wife have been released to the public and they do NOT make the accused murderer look any better in our eyes.
The man who shot Trayvon Martin was released on bail and then taken back into custody this month after prosecutors discovered he had concealed his finances to get a reduced bond. It turns out that he had over $130,000 worth of donations in his bank account after he told a judge he was broke.
His wife Shellie is also facing a perjury charge because she corroborated his story with false testimony. The calls were used as evidence in court to prove that the Zimmermans were trying to cover their financial tracks and it's pretty solid proof considering the content.
The phone calls feature George instructing Shellie on how to transfer funds from their bank accounts into others, which recent bank records reveal she did in multiples just under $10,000 to avoid suspicion.
George's 25-year-old wife is quoted as saying, "After all this is over, you're going to be able to have a great life."
Hmm…surely she isn't hinting toward the fact that her hubbies "supporters" have given him WAY MORE money than he needs for "living expenses"?
It sounds to us like he used his infamy to dupe the sympathetic public into giving him a hefty amount of cash to spend "after" he serves time or worse, walks free.
What is more terrible is the fact that he JOKED about the death of the 17-year-old he shot while talking to his attorney. As they discussed their strategy for safely leaving jail after his release, George jokes, "Well, I have my hoodie."
Ugh! Really, dude?
Shellie was released on a $1,000 bond the same day she was taken into custody, but her husband's new bond amount will be determined at a hearing on June 29.
