George Zimmerman Net Worth: George Michael Zimmerman (born October 5, 1983) was an American who, on February 26, 2012, fatally shot Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. He was cleared of all charges in Florida v. George Zimmerman on July 13, 2013. Zimmerman himself was the victim of a shooting following his acquittal, resulting in a conviction for attempted murder against the suspect. Zimmerman, 32, who is identified as Hispanic, pleaded self-defense after his arrest in Sanford, Florida, in 2012, for the murder of Martin, an unarmed African-American 17-year-old.
Martin had been living in a gated community with his father at the time, where prosecutors said Zimmerman racially profiled and followed the teen before the shooting. A year later, Zimmerman was convicted of second-degree murder and spared federal civil-rights charges, sparking what became the Black Lives Matter national protest movement and straining relationships with race.
