(CNN) -- Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of acquitted neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of perjury.

She will be placed on probation for one year and is required to file a letter of apology to Judge Kenneth Lester.

George Zimmerman was acquitted by a six-person jury in July on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.

Prosecutors allege Shellie Zimmerman lied when she told a judge during a bail hearing for her husband in April 2012 that the family was indigent. In fact, they argue, George Zimmerman actually had about $135,000 at the time.
