It only took 72 hours for a juror in the Zimmerman trial to attempt to profit from it.
Juror B37 and her husband has signed with literary agent and Martin Literary Management president Sharlene Martin.
The Martin released this statement:
My hope is that people will read Juror B37’s book, written with her attorney husband, and understand the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial and how important, despite one’s personal viewpoints, it is to follow the letter of the law. It could open a whole new dialogue about laws that may need to be revised and revamped to suit a 21st century way of life. The reader will also learn why the jurors had no option but to find Zimmerman Not Guilty due to the manner in which he was charged and the content of the jury instructions.
The name of Juror B37 has not been released.
According to the literary agency, ”it is not known whether they will participate in any media at this time or decide to reveal their identities given the sensitivity of the verdict and the outpouring of mixed reactions by the American public.”
