If Zimmy is found guilty for murder, will he be sentenced to death or life in prison?

He has been charged with second-degree murder. It is unlikely he would get more than 10 years, and probably not even that many.

Why the heck would you think he would get death. He isn't even going to get 1st degree murder. His 1 murder is no worse than anyone else's. He will get 20-40 years IF CONVICTED. I personally think this is like the OJ case though. There just isn't enough evidence to prove that his actions were not in self defense. Whether or not he killed Trayvon in cold blood is irrelevant. What is important is the evidence that can be scrapped up.

No death sentence for 2nd degree murder.
I think he will be found guilty but not of 2nd degree murder, probably manslaughter at most.

If convicted, Zimmerman faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole and a minimum sentence of 25 years without parole.

If found guilty of murder? He stands a better chance of being convicted of homicide and since he was not committing a crime when he killed Martin he cannot be given the death penalty.Source(s): Texas!

This web site explains the Florida law on 2nd Degree murder and its penalties. It looks like that according to Florida law Zimmerman may be found innocent unless the state can prove his act to be one of "depraved indifference."

If he is found guilty, it means there is no longer any justice in the USa and it will mean also that the white power folks have been right the last 40 years. Blood will flow quickly as the racial war starts.

Toughie. i don't probable like the dying sentence, yet lifestyles in penitentiary expenses tax money! So dying sentence. in the event that they have been caught in penitentiary for something of their lifestyles, i won't have the ability to think of the dying sentence could be plenty worse.

It's impossible for us to know.
It will depend on what charges, if any, he's convicted OF, and the judge.

Isn't gonna happen... Involuntary manslaughter at the most... and probably not even that.
