A number of legal analysts believe it's going to happen, but ABC's Dan Abrams was the first to voice it on the air. 

Abram's believes that George Zimmerman is going to walk on the charges of second degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. 

"I just don't see how a jury convicts him of second degree murder or even manslaughter in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.," Abrams says. "I certainly sympathize with the anger and frustration of the Martin family and doubt that a jury will accept the entirety of George Zimmerman's account as credible. But based on the legal standard and evidence presented by prosecutors it is difficult to see how jurors find proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it wasn't self defense."

WTKS (Orlando) Radio host Jim Phillips has been saying on the radio for months that Zimmerman is going to get off. Abrams is the first TV network legal analyst to say so on air. 

The defense started their side late last week and the jury could get the case by the end of the week.
