STANFORD, FL (POOL/CNN) - On July 13, 2013, George Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watchman, never denied fatally shooting the unarmed teen, but he said it was self-defense.

The murder trial was watched intensely and sparked passionate debate about race relations in America, gun laws, profiling and self-defense.
