Juror Admits ‘George Zimmerman Got Away With Murder’

By Tom Kludt and Micah Naziri

A woman who sat on the all-female jury that acquitted George Zimmerman said in an interview, that the former neighborhood watch captain “got away with murder” in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. The woman — who is only identifying herself by her first name, Maddy — made an appearance on “Good Morning America” with Robin Roberts this morning.

Juror B29, the lone minority on the jury, allowed her face to be shown in her interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts and disclosed a first name of Maddy. But the 36-year-old nursing assistant, who is Puerto Rican, did not offer her last name, citing security concerns.

In the interview with “Good Morning America,” Maddy said that she and the jurors followed Florida law and the evidence put forth was not sufficient to prove murder. And for that, she said, Zimmerman walked.

“George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can’t get away from God. And at the end of the day, he’s going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with,” Maddy told ABC. “[But] the law couldn’t prove it.”

Maddy said she expected to be the juror “to give them the hung jury.”

“I fought to the end,” she said.
