Juror: Zimmerman 'got away with murder' but had to be acquitted

A member of the jury that acquitted George Zimmerman said Thursday she thinks Zimmerman "got away with murder" but that jurors had no choice in finding him not guilty under the law.

The woman said the evidence didn't prove murder, "Even though in our hearts we felt he was guilty."  "We had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence," she said.

Juror B29 said she initially held out for convicting Zimmerman of second-degree murder, but after nine hours of deliberations, she came to the conclusion that wasn't enough proof under Florida law. "I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end," she said.
