Feds Look To Charge Zimmerman

Feds Look To Charge Zimmerman
( 4UMF NEWS ) Feds Look To Charge Zimmerman:

The U.S. Justice of Department is now investigating the shooting death of Trayvon Martin … meaning, if slapped with federal charges, George Zimmerman could face jail time — even after his not guilty verdict.

The DOJ issued a statement Sunday … revealing they are looking into the case, evaluating the evidence (including testimony from the State trial) — and will determine whether or not federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.

Here’s why it’s important … Zimmerman was found not guilty on Saturday of both second-degree murder and manslaughter when tried by the State of Florida — and is technically a free man.

But since the news broke … civil-rights activists have been up in arms​, like Al Sharpton and the NAACP who are clamoring for the DOJ to bring civil rights charges against Zimmerman.

If the Feds decide to go through with new criminal charges … then a jail sentence is back on the table.

Although, according to legal experts, it will be an uphill battle to prove in court that Zimmerman was motivated solely by race.
