Zimmerman Trial: Day Six
Sanford, Fla. -- With day 6 of jury selection over, 32 potential jurors will now move on to the 40 needed for panel questioning.
Earlier today we saw several jurors from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of opinions on the case.
Both the defense and the prosecution today had a difficult time staying on track and only discussing the pretrial publicity these hearings are intended to cover.
Juror H13 an older woman caring for several grandsons who felt a not guilty verdict could cause more racial tensions in an already historically troubled community of Sanford.
Still, she said, it wouldn't sway her from an acquital if she felt it was right.
One juror refered to as H18 was a man originally from Kuwait who knew little of the case or the jury selection process.
Juror H27 - the first juror questioned to have donated to either party - was grilled for more than an hour by prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda.
He maintained he could still be fair, but was dismissed by Judge Debora Nelson this afternoon.
The second juror to take the stand today said he could not determine guilt or innocence for religious and moral reasons and was dismissed.
Another, H31, was a single mom who said a sequestered jury would be a hardship was also dismissed without questioning.
