George Zimmerman's wife Shellie pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor perjury charge for lying during a bail hearing after her husband's arrest.
A jury began deliberating George Zimmerman's fate Friday after hearing dueling portraits of the neighborhood watch captain: a wannabe cop who took the law into his own hands or a well-meaning volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin because he feared for his life.
Authorities say the wife of Trayvon Martin's shooter is being accused of lying to a judge about their finances during his bond hearing and faces one count of perjury.
Prosecutor John Guy said he agreed to the lesser charge because Mrs. Zimmerman didn't have a prior criminal record and the deal would allow her to pursue her career, the AP reported.
