Judge: “Zimmerman Does Not Respect the Law”
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman’s bond on June 1, but his written order was filed Monday, and made public by The Orlando Sentinel.
In his order, Judge Lester said that it was “apparent” that Zimmerman’s wife had lied under oath, and clear that Zimmerman “does not properly respect the law.”
“It is apparent that [Shellie] Zimmerman testified untruthfully at the bond hearing,” the judge writes in his order. “The Defendant also testified, but did not alert the Court to the misinformation.”
“Had the Court been made aware of the true financial circumstances at the bond hearing, the bond decision might have been different,” Lester wrote.
The judge wrote that he weighed all of the evidence, and most of the evidence was against Zimmerman.
“Most importantly, though, is the fact that he has now demonstrated that he does not properly respect the law or the integrity of the judicial process,” Lester wrote.
