In less than three days after George Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, a juror in the case has already signed with a literary agent with the hopes getting a book deal.
According to reports by Mediabisto, Juror B37, and her attorney husband, has signed with Martin Literary Management and Sharlene Martin.
In a statement, Martin said:
“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.”
It is expected that other jurors, attorneys, witnesses and even the judge will likely to attempt to profit from the high profile case by signing a book deal.
The jurors who served have remained anonymous thus far.
