George Zimmerman Trial Juror to Write Book
The anonymous female identified as Juror B37 will explain why the panel had "no option" but to find him innocent in the death of Trayvon Martin.
The project was announced by Martin, the president of Martin Literary Management. She did not say when she would take the proposal or full manuscript to market or if she had already received interest from publishers.
Court records describe Juror B37 as a middle-aged white woman with two daughters (24 and 27) who had a concealed weapons permit but let it expire. Her attorney husband continues to hold a concealed weapons permit, according to ABC News.
"My hope is that people will read Juror B37’s book, written with her attorney husband, and understand the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial and how important, despite one’s personal viewpoints, it is to follow the letter of the law," Martin said.
"The reader will also learn why the jurors had no option but to find Zimmerman not guilty due to the manner in which he was charged and the content of the jury instructions."
