article imageJuror B29 talks: George Zimmerman 'can't get away from God'

By Marcus Hondro     Jul 25, 2013 in Crime
One of six jurors in the George Zimmerman trial spoke today for the first time since the verdict and said that Zimmerman got away with murder. She considered making it a hung jury but in the end she decided the evidence for a conviction wasn't there.
"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God," the 36-year-old mother of eight told Robin Roberts of 'Good Morning America.' "And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers to deal with. (But) the law couldn't prove it."
The woman, identified only as Maddy, with no surname, allowed her face to be shown on the screen during portions of the interview. She had only moved to Sanford from Chicago five months before being selected for jury duty, she said, and is Puerto Rican, the only non-white member of the six member, all woman jury.
A nurses assistant, Maddy said that she did not feel the case was about race but she did feel Mr. Zimmerman was responsible for Trayvon Martin's death and had no justification for killing him. "You can't put the man in jail even through in our hearts we felt he was guilty," she said.
She admits that in the wake of protests about the verdict she has begun to doubt whether she made the right decision.
