George Zimmerman (2013)
Charged With: Second Degree Murder
The Trial: On the night of February 12, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in the Sanford, Florida neighborhood where he was temporarily staying. George Zimmerman, alarmed by Martin’s reported “suspicious” activity called 911 to report Martin’s alleged discrepancies. "This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something,” Zimmerman reported. “It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about" and "looking at all the houses.” Shortly after, a violent encounter ensued, ending with a deadly gunshot to Martin’s chest.
Outcome: On July 14, 2013, Zimmerman, who declared self-defense, was acquitted on charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter.
