Statement from Juror B37

Below is an additional statement given exclusively to CNN this morning from Juror B37 following her interview with Anderson Cooper on AC360.

"Thank you for the opportunity to vent some of the anguish which has been in me since the trial began. For reasons of my own, I needed to speak alone. There will be no other interviews. My prayers are with all those who have the influence and power to modify the laws that left me with no verdict option other than "not guilty" in order to remain within the instructions. No other family should be forced to endure what the Martin family has endured.(Read more)

Juror B37: We did care about Trayvon Martin

STATE vs. ZIMMERMAN JURORS’ REQUEST FOR PRIVACY

We, the undersigned jurors, understand there is a great deal of interest in this case. But we ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives. We also wish to point out that the opinions of Juror B-37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below.

Serving on this jury has been a highly emotional and physically draining experience for each of us. The death of a teenager weighed heavily on our hearts but in the end we did what the law required us to do.

We appeal to the highest standards of your profession and ask the media to respect our privacy and give us time to process what we have been through.

Thank you,

Juror B-51

Juror B-76

Juror E-6

Juror E-40

Juror B37: Rachel Jeantel wasn't a good witness

In an exclusive interview on AC360, Zimmerman trial Juror B37 told Anderson Cooper she thought Rachel Jeantel was not a credible prosecution witness.

She said the most important part from Jeantel's testimony was "The time she was on the phone with Trayvon ... hopefully if she heard anything she would say she did but the time coincides with George’s statements and testimony of time limits and what had happened during that time."
