George Zimmerman's Dad Testifies Voice Howling for Help Is His Son

Zimmerman's wife, Shellie Zimmerman, told the judge she was essentially broke, when in the days leading up to that hearing, she and her husband held clumsily coded jailhouse conversations about shuffling to various accounts $135,000 in cash amassed from donations to Zimmermans website. Audio tapes of the hushed jailhouse conversations were released earlier this month.

Shellie Zimmerman has been charged with perjury.

Orlando defense attorney Mark Lippman said that whether or not Lester grants Zimmerman bail, he is likely to "receive a tongue-lashing from the judge."

It is also expected that if the normally stern judge grants Zimmerman bail, the bond would be much higher than his previous bond of $150,000. Typically bail bondsmen charge 10 percent of the total bond.
