Juror B37 spoke with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, insisting that George Zimmerman had good intentions but used poor judgment.

“I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart is in the right place but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done,” she said. “But I think his heart was in the right place. It just went terribly wrong.”

Juror B37, along with five other female jurors, found Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder for the killing of black teen Trayvon Martin last year. Zimmerman claimed that Martin attacked him and he shot Martin in self-defense.

Cooper asked the juror if she believed Zimmerman was guilty of anything.

“I think he is guilty of not using good judgement,” she responded.

The juror said Zimmerman was wrong to get out of his car to follow Martin. She blamed the 911 operator for egging him on by asking Zimmerman where Martin was going.

Juror B37 has already signed a book deal.
