The Man Who Shot George Zimmerman Has Been Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison

The Irony…… The man who shot George Zimmerman during a road rage incident has been convicted to 20 years in prison…….. And George Zimmerman get no time for killing an unarmed young black male……

According to

Matthew Apperson was convicted of attempted second-degree murder in September. In addition to the 20-year sentence, he was also given a 15-year concurrent sentence for aggravated assault stemming from the same incident, Seminole County State Attorney spokeswoman Lynne Bumpus-Hooper said.

The road rage incident happened in Lake Mary, Florida, in May 2015.

Speaking in court before the sentencing Monday, Zimmerman thanked jurors for convicting Apperson, who he said “showed absolutely no care for human life.” “Mr. Apperson pulled that trigger and didn’t care. In fact, he joyfully bragged about killing me and said, ‘I got him. I shot George Zimmerman.’ He thought he had killed me, and he was happy about it,” Zimmerman said. During the trial, Apperson gave a different account, saying he acted in self-defense and that Zimmerman had threatened to kill him. After Monday’s sentencing, Apperson’s wife said the media had painted her husband as a monster and accused witnesses of lying on the stand, CNN affiliate WFTV reported. “I can’t wrap my head around all of it,” Lisa Apperson said, according to WFTV. “The lies, the things people have held onto, it’s just so much injustice and it’s such a shame.”
