    Another juror from the trial is speaking out. The all-female jury was composed of 5 white women and one Hispanic. Juror B29 came out to the world as Maddy, a 36-year-old Puerto Rican nursing assistant and mother of 8, during an exclusive interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America”. Maddy expressed that she feels Zimmerman “got away with murder” for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

    When speaking of the charges, Maddy stated,

    “You can’t put the man in jail even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty. But we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence.”

    She said the decision was based on Florida’s laws, and the prosecution’s evidence did not prove second degree murder.

    The juror also believes the trial was a publicity stunt, and since the trial, she has struggled with whether or not she has done the right thing. She sympathizes with Martin’s parents and feels as if she let them down.

    “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 i. I feel the verdict was already told.”
