One of the jurors who served on the George Zimmerman trial is set to break her silence.
The juror, known only with the designation B-37, will detail her experience on the country’s much talked about panel, according to literary and media manager Sharlene Martin.
Martin, in a statement to msnbc.com, said the juror will write the book with her husband, who is an attorney.
Juror B-37, one of six women who delivered the not guilty verdict on Saturday, reached out to her on Sunday after being referred by a producer at one of the morning shows, Martin said. It is not yet known if the juror will reveal her identity.
“My hope is that people will read Juror B37’s book…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,” said Martin, president of Martin Literary Management. “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,” she added.
It is not clear if there is a publisher for the proposed book.
Juror B-37 has been described as a middle-aged white woman who is the daughter of an Air Force captain. She’s been working for the same company for 16 years and has two children, a 24-year-old pet groomer and a 27-year-old student at the University of Central Florida. According to NBC News, she has been called to serve on a jury four times but said she was never seated because of “where I work.”
Martin’s agency has also overseen a book by Jessica Buchanan, an American aid worker who was kidnapped and rescued in Somalia last year. It’s currently involved in a book on Jodi Arias, who was convicted this year of first-degree murder in the death of her ex-boyfriend.
Zimmerman, a former volunteer neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Travyon Martin in February 2012, was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter. He said he acted in self-defense.
