dropped in connection with the shooting death of Trayvon
Martin. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson said she will rule Monday on a
prosecution request for a gag order in the celebrated case that sparked weeks of
demonstrations. The Friday court hearing was televised. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, has admitted shooting the unarmed Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla. But Zimmerman has argued that he acted in self-defense. The prosecution has maintained that Zimmerman profiled

recent cases.

On June 4, CeCe McDonald was sentenced to 41 months in prison. This is the minimum sentence for second degree manslaughter in Minnesota. CeCe will receive credit for the 275 days she's already spent in custody. Along with a reduction in time served for presumed good behavior, McDonald will likely be released from prison in under two years. Because she is transgender, it's expected that McDonald will be sent to Minnesota Correctional Facility-St. Cloud, a men's prison. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribute, once there "the state will initiate an effort to make its own determination of McDonald's gender."
