His GPS monitor has been cut off and George Zimmerman is free -- but only legally.
Zimmerman fears for his life. He's a reviled figure to millions, despite his acquittal Saturday night in Trayvon Martin's killing. And he could still be held criminally liable for Martin's death.
'They want revenge'
Zimmerman's attorney describes him as a marked man.
"He has to be very cautious and protective of his safety because there is still a fringe element who have said ... that they will not listen to a verdict of not guilty," said Mark O'Mara.
Zimmerman, 29, has kept his address under wraps for more than a year and worn a disguise whenever he left his four walls. He has often strapped on body armor, according to O'Mara.
And he may feel the need to be armed.
When asked by CNN's Piers Morgan whether Zimmerman will keep the gun used in the killing, his brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., said, "I don't see any reason why he shouldn't.
"I think he has more reason now than ever to think that people are trying to kill him because they express they're trying to kill him, all the time, every day, on my Twitter feed, on the Internet."
Robert Zimmerman gave more details Sunday on CNN's "New Day."
"The threats are vile, they're vicious, they're disgusting. And sometimes they're in person. People wearing shirts with my brother's face on it in crosshairs, encouraging others to act out violently against him. I know that you can't take every one one of those seriously, but you can't afford to be wrong either. Because you can be dead wrong if somebody really were intent on harming you."
"He's going to have to learn to move about in a very low-profile way and keep to himself," Robert Zimmerman said, although having the GPS removed and no trial to occupy his days helps end George Zimmerman's feeling of being "kind of caged in."
Zimmerman, married with no children, may leave Florida and choose to lead a life in the shadows -- like Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter in 2008.
Zimmerman could face more criminal charges
With the state criminal case over, George Zimmerman could now face new criminal charges.
The federal government could file a civil rights suit, accusing him of violating 17-year-old Martin's civil rights.
The NAACP has called on the Justice Department to file civil rights charges, and is asking the public to sign a petition.
"The most fundamental of civil rights -- the right to life -- was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin," the group said.
Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, acknowledged killing the unarmed teen, saying it was in self-defense.
The Justice Department did not respond directly to the NAACP demand. It has a separate federal investigation going on.
An official told CNN the department "continues to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial."
Meanwhile, the Martin family could file a civil lawsuit against Zimmerman, seeking damages. The suit would claim wrongful death -- which is easier to prove than murder or manslaughter.
And the Rev. Al Sharpton said the acquittal was "only the first round in the pursuit of justice."
NAACP President Ben Jealous expects legal action will proceed on both fronts.
"There will be a civil phase almost assuredly, and then there will be a federal civil rights phase," he told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "And we are putting our faith in that system."
