Other jurors in George Zimmerman case distance themselves from Juror B37
Last Updated: 147 days ago
ORLANDO, Fla. - Four of the six jurors from the murder trial of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman are distancing themselves from statements another juror made in a televised interview.
The four jurors issued a brief statement Tuesday on court stationery saying the opinions expressed by Juror B37 are not representative of their views. The six-sentence statement did not specify what parts of the other juror's comments they disagreed with.
Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Juror B37 said the actions of Zimmerman and 17-year-old Trayvon Martin both led to the teenager's fatal shooting last year, but that Zimmerman didn't actually break the law.
The four jurors' statement says Martin's death weighed heavily on their hearts and that the trial was physically draining for them. But they say they did what the law required them to do.
