Report: Juror In Zimmerman Case Signs With Literary Agent

The jury for the George Zimmerman delivered its verdict on Saturday evening and on Monday, a literary agent announced that Juror B37 aims to write a book about the proceedings.

Sharlene Martin, president of Martin Literary Management, provided this statement to Media Bistro:

 

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 juror signed with the agency along with her husband, who is an attorney, and has chosen to remain anonymous at this time, according to Media Bistro.
