However, under the Florida Law there was not enough evidence presented at the trial to convict him.
Earlier this month, Zimmerman was acquitted of his second-degree and manslaughter charged in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Martin was shot and killed during a deadly confrontation with Zimmerman in 2012. The case was a very heated one that had national debated about racial profiling and the Stand Your Ground laws in Florida.
Juror B-29 told ABC News that at the beginning of deliberations she was in favor of convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder. She also said she was going to be the juror that would give them a hung jury. She was not going to give up on her beliefs.
Sadly, by the second day of deliberating, she came to the conclusion that there was not enough evidence to convict Zimmerman of the crime.
Last week was the first time Zimmerman was seen publicly. He was seen assisting a family after their automobile flipped over on a Florida highway.
Juror B-20 was the second one out of the jurors to go public and share what went on during deliberations. She even allowed her face to be shown on camera and used her first name. However, Juror B-37, the first juror to go public did an interview with CNN last week without her face on camera.
