Juror In Zimmerman Case Says He "Got Away With Murde"

Juror In Zimmerman Case Says He

Juror B29 in the George Zimmerman case has admitted that she feels that he Zimmerman "got away with murder" for killing 17-year old Trayvon Martin. The juror -- who is going by Maddy, is a Puerto Rican woman and was the only minority to deliberate in the case. She is also a 36-year-old mother of eight.

In an exclusive interview with Robin Roberts, she said about the case, "I felt like I let a lot of people down, and I'm thinking to myself, 'Did I go the right way? Did I go the wrong way? 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. I feel the verdict was already told."

Robin then asked, ["What was your first vote?" Maddy: "My first vote was second degree murder. In between the nine hours, it was hard. A lot of us had wanted to find something bad, something that we could connect to the law. For myself, he's guilty, because the evidence shows he's guilty." Robin: "He's guilty of? . . . ." Maddy: "Killing Trayvon Martin. But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty."] SOUNDCUE (:28 OC . . . say he's guilty)

  • Robin then asked, ["Did you want to step out at all? Did you want to quit?" Maddy: "I was the juror that was gonna give them the hung jury. I fought til the end. It's hard for me to sleep, it's hard for me to eat because I feel that I was forcibly included in Trayvon Martin's death. And I carry him on my back. I'm hurting as much as Trayvon Martin's mom is, because there's no way that any mother should feel that pain."] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC . . . feel that pain)
