Yesterday, special prosecutor Angela Corey announced that George Zimmerman is officially facing a second degree murder charge for the death of Trayvon Martin. If convicted, this charge carries the possibility of life without parole. Many feel these charges should have been brought immediately, and the racial overtones of the case have added to the public outcry. This case will undoubtedly continue to bring attention to Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law, which might make a conviction harder to obtain.
