Earlier this month, a judge threw George Zimmerman back in jail, after prosecutors said Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about their finances.

On Tuesday, his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, was booked into the same facility on a perjury charge.

According to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were alerted by prosecutors Tuesday that a warrant had been issued for Shellie Zimmerman, 25. She was arrested about 3:30 p.m. “at the location she was residing in Seminole County,” deputies said in a statement.

She was booked on a perjury charge, with bond set at $1,000. She is currently “in the process of posting bond,” deputies said.

The arrest comes after prosecutors in George Zimmerman’s case told Judge Kenneth Lester that Shellie Zimmerman lied about her husband’s finances, in order to conceal about $135,000 from the court.

June 1, 2012

A judge revoked bond today for George Zimmerman, who is accused of killing a Florida teenager in his gated community, and ordered the neighborhood watch captain to surrender himself in 48 hours.

Prosecutors had filed a motion today to revoke his bond, accusing Zimmerman of “deceiving” the court about his finances and his possession of a second passport, which he apparently acquired two weeks after the shooting.

“The court was led to believe that they didn’t have a single penny,” said prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda. “If this [the money] wasn’t relevant to bond then why did they lie about it? I don’t know what other words to use besides that it was a blatant lie.”

In recordings of conversations released today during a court hearing, Zimmerman and his wife cryptically talk about his second passport in a safety deposit box they shared.

Although one of his passports was due to expire in May, prosecutors said today, Zimmerman applied for a second passport, informing the State Department that the original had been lost lost or stolen.

In some of the phone calls between the two, she is at a credit union that was linked to his PayPal account and speaking to a teller. The prosecution said that she was “intimately involved in the deposit and transfer of funds and money into various accounts.”

In the conversations Zimmerman and his wife speak in code — reducing the amounts in their financial accounts by a factor of 1,000. Prosecutors said the couple knew that their jailhouse conversations were likely being recorded.

Zimmerman is accused of tracking down and killing teenager Trayvon Martin, who caught the attention of the neighborhood watch captain in his gated Florida community.

The new documents show that Zimmerman had $135,000 in his bank account the day before his bail hearing — in which he declared himself financially indigent.

The prosecution and defense also have banded together against more than a dozen media companies’ demands to uncork another batch of sealed records that could reveal much more about both Zimmerman and Martin that night.

The attorneys for Zimmerman and the state will likely try to keep sealed Zimmerman’s statements to police, his text messages and the names and addresses of 22 witnesses who saw or heard the fighting between Zimmerman and Martin Feb. 26.

Both sides have argued that given the intense controversy and scrutiny over the shooting, keeping a lid on public information about the identity of witnesses and Zimmerman’s allegedly inconsistent statements given to police the night of the shooting would enable them to more fairly pursue justice.

However, the media companies countered that violates Florida’s especially open public records laws.

Zimmerman has claimed that he shot the unarmed 17-year-old Feb. 26 in self-defense.

The prosecution has accused the neighborhood watchman of “profiling” Martin, who is black; following him; and entering into a confrontation that eventually led him to draw his weapon and shoot Martin in the chest.

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara wrote on his blog that once he receives all the evidence from the state he will begin deposing about 50 witnesses, including experts. He added the trial is now not expected to begin until 2013.

O’Mara has brought on a new co-counsel to help him with the case, Orlando attorney Donald West, who specializes in murder cases.

West resigned from his post at the federal public defender’s office in Orlando specifically to join O’Mara and defend Zimmerman.

11:12 a.m. EST        April 20, 2012

After more than a week in jail, George Zimmerman found out today that he will be allowed bail on the second-degree murder charge he faces in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Judge Kenneth Lester said Zimmerman’s bond will be set at $150,000. He will be placed on GPS monitoring, and will not be released from custody today.

Zimmerman arrived in court about 9 a.m., wearing a suit and tie and handcuffs, with a chain across his waist. He was seated next to his attorney, Mark O’Mara.

Also in the courtroom were Special Prosecutor Angela Corey, Trayvon Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, and family attorney Benjamin Crump.

Minutes before the judge ruled on his bond, Zimmerman took the stand and apologized to Trayvon Martin’s family.

“I did not know if he was armed or not,” Zimmerman said of Trayvon Martin on the night of the shooting. He said he’s sorry for the Martin family’s loss.

Asked why he waited so long to apologize, Zimmerman said he was told not to reach out to the family. He denied having changed his version of events during the investigation.

After brief testimony from Zimmerman, his attorney argued that his bail should be set at $15,000. O’Mara cited Zimmerman’s financial difficulties in arguing for the bond. He also pointed out that Zimmerman has been cooperative with law enforcement.

“He came in voluntarily and surrendered himself to law enforcement,” O’Mara said. “He is well established in the community.”

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda argued that the court should consider that Trayvon Martin “was minding his own business.” He was not committing a crime, De La Rionda said.

He said that Zimmerman should get no bond, or if he does get bond, it should be $1 million.

State Attorney’s investigator Dale Gilbreath testified earlier. O’Mara questioned him about the probable cause affidavit he signed for the second-degree murder charge. Gilbreath said he did not expect to testify at the hearing.

O’Mara grilled Gilbreath on his use of the word “profiling” in describing Zimmerman’s behavior that night, asking why he used the term. Gilbreath said the term indicates that Zimmerman saw the teen, then formed an opinion of him not based on any facts.

O’Mara asked Gilbreath about unattributed statements in several sections of the affidavit.

“‘Zimmerman confronted Martin.’ Those words, where’d you get them from,” O’Mara asked.

“According to one of the witnesses that we talked with, there were arguing words going on before this incident occured,” Gilbreath said. He said “confronted,” the word O’Mara took issue with, was one of probably 30 he could have used.

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda then questioned Gilbreath. He asked is there was any evidence that Trayvon Martin shouldn’t have been in the neighborhood where the shooting occurred, or was breaking any law. Gilbreath said no.

Gilbreath testified that there is video of Trayvon Martin buying Skittles and iced tea before the shooting. He also said that Trayvon was unarmed.

During further questioning by O’Mara, Gilbreath admitted that the state has no evidence who started the fight. There is also no evidence that Zimmerman didn’t walk back to his car after chasing Martin on foot, as the defendant has claimed.

However, he said that Zimmerman’s statements, as well as his description of the injuries he suffered, are contradicted by other evidence in the case.

As the hearing began, O’Mara surrendered Zimmerman’s passport. Then, members of Zimmerman’s family began testifying by phone, as had been arranged Thursday.

Zimmerman’s mother, Gladys Zimmerman, said she’s concerned for her son’s safety, as the family has recieved threats.

Gladys Zimmerman testified that her son was active in protesting in 2010, when a Sanford police lieutenant’s son was caught on camera punching a homeless man outside a bar. George handed out flyers advocating for an arrest, “so that poor man could have justice,” she said.

She said her son is very protective of people, regardless of race. He also worked as a mentor for children in need, she said.

Zimmerman’s father, Robert Zimmerman, said he would alert the court if his son failed to adhere to the conditions of his bond.

He said he doesn’t have much money to help his son with bail, but would take a second mortgage on his home to help secure his son’s release.

“I’m a disabled veteran, and don’t have a great deal of income,” the elder Zimmerman said. Of his son, he said, “I’ve never known him to be violent at all unless otherwise provoked, then he’d turn the other cheek.”

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda then asked Robert Zimmerman about his son’s finances. He also asked Robert Zimmerman about his son’s prior 2005 arrest, in which he was accused of striking a law enforcement officer near the University of Central Florida.

He said his son has “always been interested in criminal justice,” and is an honest man.

5:26 p.m. EDT        April 18, 2012

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester, Jr., who’s been on the bench 15 years and has a great deal of experience with high-profile murder cases, on Wednesday was assigned the George Zimmerman murder case.

It was originally given to Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler, but she recused herself Wednesday after Zimmerman’s attorney asked her to step aside because of a possible conflict of interest: Her husband is the law partner of Mark NeJame, who’s been hired to comment on the case for CNN.

All criminal cases in Seminole County are assigned by chance, based on a rotation system. Next up in that rotation was Circuit Judge John Galluzzo. He, though, could not accept the case because he formerly practiced law with Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara.

O’Mara is also the godfather of one of Galluzzo’s four children.

So Galluzzo stepped aside, passing the case to the next judge: Lester.

He has already made plans to preside at Zimmerman’s bond hearing. It’ll start at 9 a.m. Friday and be in Recksiedler’s courtroom, 5D at the Seminole Criminal Justice Center.

Dozens of news organizations are expected to be there. Zimmerman’s case has become a cause célèbre and one of the most racially divisive in the country.

He shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old Feb. 26, as the teenager walked through Zimmerman’s Sanford neighborhood. Critics accused Zimmerman of racial profiling and Sanford police of botching their investigation.

When police did not immediately arrest him, protesters took to the streets in cities across the country.

Special Prosecutor Angela Corey, the state attorney in Jacksonville, ordered Zimmerman’s arrest April 11 on a charge of second-degree murder.

Lester, 58, was elected judge in 1996 by challenging an incumbent.

He is popular with attorneys, including Wayne Klinkbeil, who was an assistant public defender assigned to Lester’s courtroom in 1997. Lester, he said, is a very good judge.

He is consistent and a tough sentencer, Klinkbeil said, “very in control of his courtroom, very straightforward.”

In court, Lester is very by-the-book. He calls defendants “sir,” and expects people to be on time. On Jan. 18, 2005, he had at least three defendants taken into custody when they showed up for court late.

The judge’s daughter, Alexandra Lester, 26, a member of the Florida Bar, said she has never saw her father agonize over a ruling.

“He basically told me it should not be hard to make the right decision if you follow the law,” she said.

The judge has a great deal of experience with criminal trials, including high-profile cases. He gave Michael Reynolds two death sentences plus a life prison sentence for beating and stabbing a Geneva couple and their 11-year-old child to death in 1998.

Lester sentenced ax murderer and handyman John Michael Buzia to death in the slaying of a 71-year-old Oviedo man.

And Lester eased into the outside world a schizophrenic killer, Stephanie Gardner, an Oviedo woman who had been locked in a state mental hospital for a decade after being found not guilty by reason of insanity in the shooting deaths of her mother and father.

Lester ordered her released to a Jacksonville group home in 2001.

In 1992, while in private practice, he helped keep the man who tortured and murdered 5-year-old Ursula Sunshine Assaid from being released early from state prison, said long-time friend and former state legislator Gary Siegel.

Donald McDougall was about to be released after serving 10 years of a 34-year sentence, but Lester, Siegel and others traveled to Tallahassee on Christmas Eve, met with the state’s corrections chief and an assistant Florida attorney general and lobbied to keep McDougall locked up.

That prompted then-Attorney General Bob Butterworth to order a halt to some early releases and a roundup of some inmates who had earlier been set free.

Lester grew up in Orlando, the son of an engineer and executive secretary.

His hero, said his daughter, was his father, Kenneth Lester Sr., a World War II veteran and Glenn L. Martin Co. engineer who raised his family in Orlando and died last week. They talked by phone every day, she said.

The judge graduated from Boone High School in 1971, having competed on its basketball, track and swim teams.

He enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 17 and was deployed to Vietnam. When he returned, he went to college, earned a degree in accounting then went to law school at the University of Florida.

He was in private practice 17 years.

Siegel had a law office in the same building as Lester for 15 years and, for a time, lived a few blocks away. He would pop into Lester’s house unannounced, plop down in the living room and ask Lester to play the piano.

“And he’d play ‘The Long and Winding Road,’ which was my favorite, and ‘Michelle,’ other Beatles tunes .. and he played well.”

“He’s a great guy,” Siegel said, “a decent guy. A lot of these people, they get on the bench, they change. … He hasn’t changed.”

Lester is married Dorothy Sedgwick, a long-time homicide prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office in Orange County.

They have two grown children.

8:46 p.m. EDT        April 12, 2012

At 8:45 a.m. Thursday, Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler learned that she had been assigned the George ZimmermanTrayvon Martin case, one of the nation’s most racially divisive murder cases.

Recksiedler, 39, of Sanford, has been a judge a little more than a year. Criminal law is not her specialty. Trial work is.

Her election was a surprise. She defeated a former judge, Oscar Hotusing of Brevard County.

She is married to a personal-injury attorney and is the mother of two.

April 11, 2012        5:25 p.m.

For weeks, protesters around the nation have demanded the arrest of George Zimmerman.

A Florida special prosecutor made that happen Wednesday. She announced that Zimmerman — the neighborhood watch volunteer who admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager on a rainy night here in February — had turned himself in and would be charged with second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

“We did not come to this decision lightly,” said Florida State Atty. Angela Corey at a news conference in Jacksonville.

Alluding to the intense publicity surrounding the case, she added, “Let me emphasize that we do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition.”

Corey declined to discuss the details of the investigation that led her office to charge Zimmerman, who had claimed self-defense — and who had been free, though in hiding, for weeks. Nor would she say where he was being held, “for his safety as well as for everyone else’s safety.”

It was a reminder of the volatile nature of a case that has plunged the country into the kind of difficult and impassioned conversation about race and justice that has followed other notorious racial incidents, from the lynching of Emmett Till in 1955 to the police beating of Rodney King in 1991.

“It feels good to know he’s off the streets. I feel very good just … knowing he’s off the street, that he’s in custody, that the wheel’s starting to turn in our favor,” Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, told a Washington news conference.

Sybrina Fulton, the teenager’s mother, said as she fought back tears: “I want to say thank God. We simply wanted an arrest. We wanted nothing more, nothing less. We just wanted an arrest and we got it, and I say thank you.”

Alluding to the racial overtones of the case, she added: “I just want to speak from my heart to your heart because a heart has no color. It’s not black, it’s not white.”

Zimmerman will plead not guilty, said Mark O’Mara, his new attorney. Self-defense would be “one facet” of the defense, O’Mara told CNN, adding that Zimmerman was “troubled” by the new charges but “doing OK” considering his circumstances.

In Florida, second-degree murder is typically charged in the event of a death stemming from a fight or confrontation that does not involve premeditation. It can result in a life sentence when a gun is used.

In Sanford, a city of 53,000 with a history of racial tension, some African Americans had said they were worried that riots would break out if charges were not forthcoming against Zimmerman, who is half white and half Latino.

On Tuesday, someone shot up an empty police car parked near Zimmerman’s neighborhood. On Wednesday, African American resident Troy Jackson, 43, said he might participate in a riot if there were no charges. “I’m going to loot every Caucasian store,” he said, sitting in front of a grocery store in the majority-black Goldsboro community. “Blood for blood.”

But as the news of the arrest trickled out, there was a palpable sense of relief.

“I feel like this is the beginning of seeing justice prevail,” said Sanford resident Gloria Baskerville, 54.

Baskerville, who is black, said she was convinced she would have been immediately arrested if she had been in Zimmerman’s shoes. All she ever wanted to see, she said, was an arrest. If Zimmerman is now acquitted by a jury, she said, “I would have to be satisfied with whatever the outcome is.”

After an initial investigation, Sanford police officials said that bringing charges against Zimmerman was complicated by Florida’s “stand your ground” law, which allows for the use of deadly force in some life-threatening situations.

Many critics have claimed that the shooting — and the lack of an arrest — stemmed from the fact that the victim was a young black man, considering it cut-and-dried evidence of the social injustices that people of color in the United States have long faced.

President Obama even weighed in, calling the story a “tragedy,” and adding, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Zimmerman had taken a vigorous interest in the safety of his neighborhood, which had suffered a rash of break-ins in the weeks leading up to the evening of Feb. 26, when he spotted Martin, 17, returning from a convenience store with a bag of Skittles and an iced tea.

Zimmerman was driving out of his gated town-home development on his way to the supermarket, when he called police and reported Martin as “a real suspicious guy” who looked like “he’s up to no good or he’s on drugs, or something.”

The police dispatcher asked Zimmerman whether he was following the youth. When Zimmerman replied that he was, the dispatcher told him, “We don’t need you to do that.” Moments later, Zimmerman — armed with a 9-millimeter weapon — got out of his car.

Zimmerman has said he shot Martin in self-defense after the youth struck him in the face, knocked him down and began pounding his head into the ground. Others suspect Zimmerman was the aggressor, one who overstepped the legal bounds of a concerned citizen.

Coverage of the case was largely limited to local media until the call between Zimmerman and the dispatcher was made public, along with a 911 call that one resident made just before the shooting. In the background of that call, someone can be heard yelling for help. Martin’s parents insist that voice belonged to their son. Zimmerman has said the voice was his.

The Sanford police chief stepped down as national attention snowballed. On March 23, Florida Gov. Rick Scott appointed Corey, a state attorney from Jacksonville, to take over the investigation.

The Justice Department, meanwhile, is conducting a separate investigation to determine whether Zimmerman should be charged with violating Martin’s civil rights. U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. said Wednesday that “if we find evidence of a potential federal criminal civil rights crime, we will take appropriate action.”

Zimmerman’s friends and family have argued that he is neither a racist nor a hothead, and have said that the facts would vindicate him.

This week, Zimmerman launched a website soliciting donations for his living and legal expenses. It was also peppered with quotations, including one attributed to British statesman Edmund Burke:

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

The Rev. Al Sharpton, though pleased with the news of the murder charge, said it was not a cause for celebration.

“We do not want anyone high-fiving tonight. There’s no victory here. There’s no winners here. They’ve lost their son,” he said as Martin’s parents stood somberly beside him. “This is not about gloating. This is about pursuing justice.”

————————————————————————————–

With the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer jailed on a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting death of an unarmed black teen, the next big question: What now?

Thousands of protesters poured into the suburban Orlando community of Sanford to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman in the weeks following the February 26 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Their calls for “Justice for Trayvon” grew more forceful with each day, with Martin’s supporters taking to the Internet and to streets in cities across the nation.

Forty-six days after the shooting, 28-year-old Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder. A Seminole County judge on Thursday found there was sufficient probable cause to move forward with the case and set a May 29 arraignment for Zimmerman.

The next legal step, say Zimmerman’s attorney and the special prosecutor, is to allow the case to work its way through Florida’s judicial system.

Their next public step, though, may prove more difficult.

Attorney Mark O’Mara, who represents Zimmerman, told CNN’s Piers Morgan late Thursday that one of his immediate goals is to “bring down the level of anger, animosity, just frustrations, emotions” that are on the periphery of the case.

O’Mara said there are two sides of the case, a legal one and a human one.

“We have the human tragedy side of it. We are going to try to bridge that if we can,” O’Mara said. “There are words that need to be said.”

Special prosecutor Angela Corey, who was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to investigate the case, said she will ensure that the judge or jury deciding the case will get only “the relevant, admissible evidence on which they can then base their decisions.”

“Let me emphasize that we do not prosecute by pressure or petition,” she said.

Both the defense and prosecution said they had no intention of trying the case in the court of public opinion, though both conceded there is extreme interest.

O’Mara believes it will be at least six months, possibly a year, before the case goes to trial.

“We, of course, have a lot of information to find out. I’m far behind on finding out the information flow,” he said.

There have been more questions than answers about what happened the night that Zimmerman shot Martin.

Zimmerman, a white Hispanic, has said he killed Martin in self-defense after the teen punched him and slammed his head on the sidewalk; Martin’s family said Zimmerman profiled their son.

Immediately after the shooting, Sanford police questioned Zimmerman and released him without charges. They said then that there were no grounds to disprove his account that he’d acted to protect himself.

A prosecution affidavit of probable cause filed Thursday with the court offered few new details about what happened the night Martin was walking home from a convenience store, though it appeared to offer some insight into how the special prosecutor views the case.

The document says Zimmerman, who lived in the same community, was in his vehicle when he saw Martin “and assumed Martin was a criminal.”

It says Zimmerman felt Martin did not belong in the gated community and called the police.

“During the recorded call Zimmerman made reference to people he felt had committed and gotten away with break-ins in his neighborhood. Later while talking about Martin, Zimmerman stated ‘these a**holes, they always get away,” and also said ‘these f****** punks.’ ”

As the incident was unfolding, Martin was on the phone with a friend, the affidavit says.

“The witness advised that Martin was scared because he was being followed through the complex by an unknown male and didn’t know why. Martin attempted to run home but was followed by Zimmerman who didn’t want the person he falsely assumed was going to commit a crime to get away before the police arrived,” it said.

The affidavit said “when the police dispatcher realized Zimmerman was pursuing Martin, he instructed Zimmerman not to do that and that the responding officer would meet him. Zimmerman disregarded the police dispatcher and continued to follow Martin who was trying to return to his home.

“Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued. Witnesses heard people arguing and what sounded like a struggle.”

Calls to 911 captured a voice crying for help; that voice belonged to Martin, according to his mother; the neighborhood watch volunteer’s relatives have said the voice was Zimmerman’s.

One of the responding officers reported seeing a wound on the back of Zimmerman’s head, and surveillance video appeared to show an injury.

“Zimmerman shot Martin in the chest. When police arrived Zimmerman admitted shooting Martin. Officers recovered a gun from a holster inside Zimmerman’s waistband.”

O’Mara said Zimmerman, who will plead not guilty, is worried about getting a fair trial in Sanford.

While O’Mara said he does not share those concerns, he told CNN the case may need to be moved out of Seminole County to get a fair and impartial jury.

Asked Thursday why his client had followed Martin, O’Mara told CNN sister network HLN, “I know so little about the evidence.”

O’Mara, who began representing Zimmerman on Wednesday just hours before he was charged, said they had not yet discussed the facts of the case.

A second-degree murder charge in Florida carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Trayvon Martin

April 11, 2012        5:25 p.m.

For weeks, protesters around the nation have demanded the arrest of George Zimmerman.

A Florida special prosecutor made that happen Wednesday. She announced that Zimmerman — the neighborhood watch volunteer who admitted to fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager on a rainy night here in February — had turned himself in and would be charged with second-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

March 22, 2012        10:27 a.m.

Sanford, Fla., on Thursday braced for what could be its biggest day of demonstrations over the death of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot by a neighborhood watch officer, George Zimmerman, last month. For those just catching up to the case that has galvanized the nation — raising legal and social issues about race, guns and self-defense — here’s some background.

What do we know?

The first phase of the case happened the night of Feb. 26.

Martin, 17, was walking back to his father’s house in a gated community in Sanford, a suburb of Orlando, Fla. He had bought a package of Skittles and an iced tea from a convenience store in the city of about 53,000 residents. A majority of the city’s residents are white; just under a third are black.

Zimmerman, 28, was patrolling the neighborhood when he saw Martin. He called police to report his suspicions and then followed the teenager, though police recordings quote the dispatcher as saying he should stay away.

Moments later, Zimmerman — identified as a Latino by his family, and as white by critics of the subsequent investigation — was in a confrontation with Martin, ultimately shooting the unarmed teenager once, killing him.

What happened next?

The controversy begins with the second phase — the aftermath of the shooting.

Local police responded to the incident and questioned Zimmerman; authorities did medical tests on the dead teenager but not on Zimmerman.

According to various reports, police say Zimmerman told them he chased Martin but gave up and was returning to his truck when the teenager attacked him. Police say Zimmerman had blood on the back of his head.

Zimmerman, who is claiming self-defense, was released and has not been charged in the shooting.

What is the family’s position?

The family, backed by national and local civil rights leaders, say that Martin was in danger — as is any other African American teenager out alone after dark, they add. Because of his race, Martin immediately appeared suspicious to a white person on patrol, especially one whose training was far less than that received by professional police.

Further, the family insists, if a black officer had shot a white teen, he would have been charged and held  — and drug and alcohol tests would have been carried out on the officer and not just the victim, who in this case was drug-free.

“They are making it look like Zimmerman is the victim,” Benjamin Crump, attorney for Martin’s parents said of the police, according to several media interviews. “And their son is in the grave. It’s about equal justice.”

What is the local police position?

Police insist they investigated and let Zimmerman go because officers were “prohibited from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time,” including the physical evidence.

“The Sanford Police Department has conducted a complete and fair investigation of this incident,”police chief Bill Lee said in a prepared statement.

What happens next is up to prosecutors who have convened a grand jury for April 10.

What is the law regarding self-defense?

Florida is one of 21 states with some form of a stand-your-ground law allows people to legally use deadly force if they fear for their life.

In general, the laws, backed by gun rights advocates, allow a person to stay and fight rather than flee a confrontation. The laws have different requirements, depending on the state. Some specify that the shooter has to have a legal weapon and has to have a right to be where he or she is.

It will be up to the grand jury to determine if Zimmerman’s self-defense claim meets Florida’s legal tests, including whether Zimmerman had reason to fear for his life during the confrontation.

The Florida version of the law, backed with the support of the National Rifle Assn., was passed in 2005.  According to the Associated Press, Florida Department of Law Enforcement statistics show that, before the law was enacted, there were about 13 so-called justified killings each year by citizens from 2000 to 2005. Between 2006 and 2010, the average has risen to 36 justified killings each year.

Some state lawmakers have already begun to question whether the Florida law is too broad, saying they’re considering legislation that would redefine the grounds under which self-defense could be claimed. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, a conservative elected after the law was passed, told reporters this week he’s open to changes if the Martin case shows there are problems.

What is the federal angle?

Martin’s parents and the Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil rights leader and television personality,  have met with federal officials including the U.S. attorney for the area. Federal officials are investigating the incident to see if there was a hate crime that would allow them to prosecute.

An explosion of social media has catapulted the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin into the national spot light, with a single petition calling for his killer’s arrest now the fastest growing petition in internet history, according to Change.org.

Martin, 17, was killed by self-appointed neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman Feb. 26. Just moments before Martin is killed, Zimmerman, who is white, can be heard muttering something in a call to the police dispatcher which many believe was a racial epithet.

Martin, who was black, was carrying only a bag of skittles, ice tea and his cell phone which captured his last seconds in a phone call with his girlfriend before he was shot to death.

Martin’s family says that what the girl heard contradicts Zimmerman’s claim that Martin was acting suspiciously and was the aggressor in their confrontation.

The family has called for Zimmerman to be arrested.

For nearly three weeks the story languished, as did the change.org petition set up for Martin’s parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracey Martin. It had a few thousand signatures, but towards the end of last week, as ABCnews.com other media began intensifying their coverage of the story and celebrities tweeted about it, interest in the story soared.

A host of celebrities from hip hop icon and entrepreneur Russell Simmons to new age leader Deepak Chopra to director Spike Lee have written and tweeted calling for justice for Martin.

Some celebs used their pulpits to drum up awareness while others issued warnings, with Simmons tweeting this last week : “Trayvon Martin didn’t die so we can create a race war he died so we can promote better understanding. We must start honest dialogue.”

Black radio and television hosts have also bouyed the story, calling on authorities to act.

Amid the growing chorus of statements, Florida authorities announced that they would convene a grand jury and the Department of Justice said they would investigate Martin’s shooting as a possible hate crime.

The growing support for the Martin family is seen in the accelerating pace of signatures on the Martin family’s Change.org petition to have Zimmerman arrested.

“The explosive petition to bring justice for Trayvon Martin was started just days ago by his parents and is already the all time fastest-growing petition on Change.org,” the group told ABC News today. “With up to 800 people signing per minute, and 250,000 petition signatures since yesterday morning, the growth is unprecedented.”

So far, nearly 800,000 people have signed the petition.

There are 15,000 petitions launched on Change.org every month, the statement said.

“People worldwide are shocked by Trayvon’s killing, and they’re turning to social media like Change.org and Twitter to turn that outrage into action,” the statement said.

Benjamin Walt-Jaffee of Change.org told ABC News that unlike Facebook, Twitter or Youtube, where a simple click of like indicates support, the signatories of the petition must provide their full name, a functioning email address and home address for their signature to be counted.
