Facing South Florida: Zimmerman Verdict – Rachel Jeantel

After more than a year, a jury issued its verdict on the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman. After more than 16 hours of deliberation, the jury found Zimmerman not guilty.

In the wake of the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin, CBS4’s Jim Defede sat down with Rod Vereen, attorney for Martin’s friend and defense witness Rachel Jeantel, and public relations consultant Suzanne McDowell to talk about the impact the teen made on the stand.
