Jacksonville, FL - On Wednesday, Florida state special prosecutor Angela Corey announced that George Zimmerman, 28, was charged with 2nd degree homicide in Trayvon Martin's, 17, death in Stanford, Florida. Corey says, the 20-day investigation found that on February 26, Zimmerman's action was not self defense, but a crime.
Zimmerman has turned himself in to authorities and was taken into custody to face charges within the next 24 hours.
Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watchman spotted Martin, an Afro-American walking the the area wearing a hoodie and called police as a suspicious person in the neighborhood. A 911 operator told Zimmerman not to follow Martin. Zimmerman disregarded the advice and followed, stalked, forced Martin to react and then Zimmerman killed him. Zimmerman says, he shot Martin in self defense.
A day ago, Zimmerman who had been in hiding began a website, therealgeorgezimmerman dot com. He posted, "As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family, and ultimately my entire life." Zimmerman had asked for donations through PayPal for his defense fund in his internet site.
