But, if the jury believes the state did not negate all “reasonable hypotheses of innocence” and Zimmerman acted in self defense, then Zimmerman should be found not guilty by the jury.

The case does not fall under the "Stand Your Ground" case because the defense alleges it didn't have the duty to retreat and Zimmerman didn't have the opportunity because his head was being pounded into the ground and he shot Martin in simple self-defense.
