Juror: Zimmerman ‘Got Away With Murder,’ But He’s Not Legally Guilty, Trial Was ‘a Publicity Stunt’



Text  



A woman who served on the Zimmerman jury told ABC News that “George Zimmerman got away with murder,” but that there was not enough proof to convict him of either murder or manslaughter.

The woman went by her first name, Maddy, and identified herself as Juror B29. She told ABC’s Robin Roberts that she continues to struggle with the decision, saying, “I felt like I let a lot of people down.” However, she explained, ”as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can’t say he’s guilty. . . . As much as we were trying to find this man guilty . . . they give you a booklet that basically tells you the truth, and the truth is that there was nothing that we could do about it.”

When asked if the case should have gone to trial in the first place, Maddy replied, “I don’t think so.” ”I felt like this was a publicity stunt,” she explained.

The interview will be broadcast tomorrow on ABC’s Good Morning America at 7 a.m. EST.
