Early life and education
Wolfinger was criticized for making the decision that there was insufficient evidence for a conviction of George Zimmerman on the charge of manslaughter. Wolfinger has expressed surprise at the national spotlight and the reaction to his decision. Zimmerman was found not guilty after being tried by another prosecutor in a state court.
