Will there be a verdict today in the George Zimmerman second-degree murder trial?

No one knows how long the jury will deliberate. The panel resumed deliberaions at 9 a.m. today to decide whether Zimmerman is guilty or not not guilty of committing a crime when he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

A verdict is possible as soon as today in the closely watched, ultra-high-profile trial.

The jurors began the process on Friday at 2:30 and deliberated until 6 p.m. when they asked to break for the day.

Once the jury has reached a verdict, it could be about one hour before that verdict is announced.

The jury can find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder, guilty of manslaughter, or not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

If the jury finds Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder, he faces a maximum of life in prison. If they find him guilty of manslaughter, he faces a maximum 30-year prison sentence.

The verdict will be read in Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson’s courtroom at the Seminole County courthouse about an hour after the jury decides.

There is a lot of speculation about exactly how long the jury will deliberate, but one thing is for sure, we will be watching every minute until we get word that a verdict has been reached.
