Zimmerman Trial: Day Two
Published June 11th, 2013
Sanford, Fla. -- Day two of jury selection in the george zimmerman trial has ended.
Potential jurors questioned today varied in age, race, and opinion of exactly what happened to Trayvon Martin.
For potential jurors in day two of the trial, a similar set of questions from the defense and the prosecution.
In these pretrial individual hearings, those summoned must recall their knowledge of the case over the past year.
Potential juror B55 was one questioned today.
A young asian women - the youngest questioned so far - was a student who said her limited knowledge of the case came from Facebook.
Potential juror B56 was a middle-aged white woman who works at a local school.
She said most of her knowledge was from recent media coverage, which she thought was blown out of proportion.
Potential juror B35, the second of the day, seemed to know a considerable amount about the case, but said it wouldn't affect his opinion.
"I'm kind of in the middle, I don't know if he's innocent or guilty," he said, "I don't know, I see things on tv and I hear people talk but I really don't know."
All the while Zimmerman sat watching, seemingly more relaxed at times today, settling in for what will be a long process.
One juror identified as B2 went straight to the bench and was not questioned for what some reporters in the court room said was a personal issue the judge did not want made public.
The Associated Press is reporting so far 40 people have been dismissed from their initial survey results.
