Sunday marks the one year anniversary of the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial - a verdict that triggered protests across the country, and a trial that captivated the nation with heated debates over race and guns.
After more than 16 hours of deliberations over two days, a Florida jury declared Zimmerman not guilty verdict in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager.
Zimmerman admitted shooting Martin, but claimed he feared for his life.
Many Americans sat glued to their television sets, through nearly four weeks of testimony that included a¬†witness who captivated many viewers: Trayvon's friend, Rachel Jeantel.
CNN's David Mattingly recently caught up with Jeantel and has her story.
