Zimmerman Juror Cancels Book Deal

A juror in the George Zimmerman case, known as juror B-37, has dropped her plans to write a book on her account of the case. Buzz had been swirling yesterday after the juror spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper at length about the trial. The juror's literary agent, Sharlene Martin, had announced B-37's plans to co-author a book with her husband, who is an attorney.

B-37said in her statement that the isolation of being sequestered "shielded me from the depth of pain that exists among the general public over every aspect of this case." She also stated in the interview that race did not play a factor in the George Zimmerman trial. The juror explained she thought Zimmerman's heart was in the right place, but he simply went too far and didn't use good judgment.

The juror spoke at length about the deliberations that she and five other women went through to reach the not-guilty verdict in the case.

"There was a couple of them in there that wanted to find him guilty of something, and after hours and hours and hours of deliberating over the law, and reading it over and over and over again, we decided there's just no way, other place to go," she said.

B-37 was the first juror to speak out since Zimmerman's acquittal late Saturday night.
