Man who shot at George Zimmerman sentenced to 20 years

- Matthew Apperson, the man convicted of shooting at George Zimmerman, was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison.

A Seminole County jury found the 38-year-old guilty last month of attempted second-degree murder, armed aggravated assault and shooting into a vehicle. 

Apperson will receive credit for serving 444 days in prison already.  Apperson's attorney is requesting the judge to grant bail while they appeal. 

Apperson was convicted of shooting at Zimmerman while the two were driving in separate vehicles down Lake Mary Boulevard.
