Trayvon Trial Juror: George Zimmerman "Got Away With Murder"
- 07/25/2013 07:49 PM EDT U.S.
In an interview with ABC, one of the six unnamed jurors on the George Zimmerman trial said she thought George Zimmerman "got away with murder" when he was acquitted for his role in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. This juror's account of the trial differ greatly from earlier interviews with a different juror, who spoke on CNN.
According to advanced transcripts from ABC, tonight's juror, known as B29, says: "You can't put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty... But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence."
B29, the only minority, on the jury of six women sat down with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts. The full interview will air on that show on Friday morning, but a clip is expected Thursday evening.
In the immediate aftermath of Zimmerman's acquittal, a different juror, B37, spoke to CNN's Anderson Cooper and said that she believed Trayvon had been the aggressor and played a big role in causing his own death.
