Arraignment Begins For Zimmerman’s Wife

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The wife of former neighborhood watch leader George Zimmerman is being arraigned.

But the court hearing Tuesday in Sanford, Fla., is expected to be uneventful since Shellie Zimmerman already has entered a plea of not guilty to a perjury charge.

She waived her requirement to attend and wasn’t going to be present during the hearing. Because of that, the judge won’t call her name although it remains on the docket.

Prosecutors allege Shellie Zimmerman misled a judge about how much money she and her husband had at his April bond hearing. She testified that they had meager resources even though they had raised at least $135,000 in donations from a Web site set up for Zimmerman’s defense.

Zimmerman is charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. He is pleading not guilty.
