George Zimmerman in Trouble with the Law Again


George Zimmerman, the man at the center of the Trayvon Martin controversy, is in trouble with the law once again.

Zimmerman, who appears to still be living in Florida, has had several run-ins with the law since the trial. This latest incident, while technically a misdemeanor, could land the former neighborhood watch volunteer into more trouble/

The Hill reports.

George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted in 2013 in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has been charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly stalking a private investigator.

Court records allege that Zimmerman “did willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follow, harass, or cyberstalk” Dennis Albert Warren.

The charges were filed in March in Seminole County Court and say that Zimmerman stalked Warren in late December.

The arraignment will take place on May 30.

Zimmerman was famously acquitted for the shooting death of Martin, who was unarmed, alleging that he acted in self-defense.

In 2016, a Florida man who claimed he shot at George Zimmerman in self-defense was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being found guilty of attempted second-degree murder.

Matthew Apperson fired a single bullet at Zimmerman as the two were driving in May 2015.
