Two years after George Zimmerman was acquitted of killing an unarmed black teenager, he told CNN that he only worries about one judge -- God.

"He knows what happened. I know what happened. So I'd leave it up to him," Zimmerman said in the interview.

Other charges since the trial have kept Zimmerman's name in the news, but he told CNN his new goal is to be on the other side of the courtroom as a lawyer.

"I think that's the best way to stop the miscarriage of justice that happened to me from happening to somebody else," he said.

Zimmerman maintains he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defence and was a scapegoat for "the government, the President, the attorney general."

In the interview, Zimmerman said he gets death threats and people have the wrong impression of him because of the trial.

He also spoke to CNN about his artwork, which has been sold online for six figures.
