George Zimmerman's trial in the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin continues Wednesday.
The prosecution will reveal Zimmerman's college coursework in criminal justice as evidence today, including a job application he made to a police agency in Virginia and to ride along with police officers in Stanford.
Through the evidence provided, prosecutors hope to portray Zimmerman as having knowledge of the stand your ground laws, law enforcement, self-defense, and an overzealous wannabe cop who was looking for trouble when he shot Martin. Meanwhile, the defense will continue to persuade jurors that Zimmerman acted in self-defense.
Prosecutors also brought up Zimmerman's interview with Fox News last year in which he says he did not know about the stand your ground law before he shot Martin.
The defense called the evidence "irrelevant" and the issue will be discussed further in court today.
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death when a fight broke out between himself and Zimmerman on his way back from a local convenience store last year. If he is found guilty, he will face up to life in prison.
The prosecutors claim that Zimmerman, who was an over zealous neighborhood watch volunteer, followed and shot Trayvon, while the defense claim that Trayvon aggravated Zimmerman who then shot him in self-defense.
