Her bond was set at $1,000. She was released by 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Shellie Zimmerman, 25, lied about the financial status of her and her husband during a bond hearing for George Zimmerman, according to court documents.
Investigators said Shellie Zimmerman said they had no money when there was about $100,000 in an account that had been donated for George Zimmerman's defense.
George Zimmerman was granted bond, but he was ordered to return to jail June 3 after his bond was revoked.
Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Lester said he believed the Zimmermans lied to the court in April about their finances to get a lower bond for George Zimmerman.
Another bond hearing for George Zimmerman was set for June 29.
