George Zimmerman’s new bond is set at $1 million. Zimmerman was originally released on a $150,000 bond stemming from second degree murder charges from the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, testified to having limited income. Therefore, the judge granted them a low bond of $150,000 ($15,000 in bail money). Prosecutors later found out during recorded jailhouse conversations that Zimmerman and his wife had access to over $135,000 at the time of the bond hearing. Zimmerman’s original bond was revoked for misleading the court about his financial standings. His wife, Shellie, is now facing charges of perjury for testifying that their income was limited under oath.
