(Reuters) – One of the six jurors in the George Zimmerman trial has abandoned her plans to write a book explaining why she found him not guilty of murder in the shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, her literary agent said on Monday.
The jury’s decision triggered protests across the United States by activists who said Martin was targeted because he was black.
Unidentified juror B37 had signed with Martin Literary Management, an agency based in Mercer Island, Washington, the firm’s president, Sharlene Martin, said in a statement on Monday.
The juror had planned to write the book with her husband, who is an attorney, explaining how the jury had “no option” but to find Zimmerman not guilty, but she subsequently decided not to proceed with publication, Martin added later. Zimmerman trial juror drops plan to write a book | Reuters.
