"He's the only judge that I have to answer to," Zimmerman said.

George Zimmerman said in an interview with CNN New Day that only God could judge him for what happened the night he killed Trayvon Martin two years ago. Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in July, and has not left the spotlight since a jury found him not guilty.

"He knows what happened. I know what happened. So I'd leave it up to him," Zimmerman said.

The former neighborhood watch volunteer said he thought his life would go back to normal after the trial. Most recently he was signed on for a highly controversial "celebrity" boxing match with rapper DMX, that has since been scrapped.

He was also served a cease and desist from the Associated Press for his painting of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey using the news service's image. His stops for speeding and domestic violence dispute with his live-in girlfriend have been highly publicized. 

Zimmerman is still hoping for some normalcy. "I'd like to professionally ... continue my education and hopefully become an attorney," he said. "I think that's the best way to stop the miscarriage of justice that happened to me from happening to somebody else. I don't think it should ever happen to anyone ever again, not one person."

Zimmerman added that he still wants to reach out to the Martin family and apologize. "I would say exactly what I said on the stand," he said, "that I'm sorry for their loss."
