Federal prosecutors are looking thru evidence and determining if they are going to charge George Zimmerman with any criminal civil-rights charges in connection with the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmermen was found not-guilty last week of criminal charges by the state of Florida but can still be charged in federal court as well as a civil suit by Trayvon Martins family. Federal prosecutors have said however that it’s very hard to get a conviction in such a high profile case. The Justice Department has a variety of criminal civil-rights laws it can use if it is determined that the offense was race related.
A good example is the Rodney king beating where officers were acquitted on state charges but two out of the five were convicted of federal charges because the civil rights of Mr King were violated.
