It's during these calls that the prosecution believed Zimmerman and his wife lied to the judge about how much money they had.
On a phone call from April 16, the couple spoke about money in an account.
The prosecution alleges Zimmerman and his wife were using code.
According to the state, $100 was actually code for $100,000, and so on.
ZIMMERMAN: In my account, do I have at least $100?
WOMAN: (inaudible) deposited (inaudible) at least $100? (background conversation) No.
ZIMMERMAN: How, how, how close am I?
WOMAN: There’s like $8
BACKGROUND VOICE: $8.60
WOMAN: $8.00 and like 60 cents or something.
ZIMMERMAN: Humph. I thought you said there was like (inaudible) total?
WOMAN: Uh-uh, no, Kevin voided it.
ZIMMERMAN: Oh, okay, so total, everything, how much are we looking at?
WOMAN: Um, like $155.
Along with conversations about money, transferring and taking out cash, they also spoke about feedback from Zimmerman’s supporters.
At one point, Zimmerman said his attorney needs to get these people who are rallying behind him to “vocalize.”
