500 jury summons for George Zimmerman trial to go out soon
Last Updated: Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:10 PM

SEMINOLE COUNTY --
You might soon be getting a summons to be a part of the jury that will decide George Zimmerman’s fate if you live in Seminole County.

Jury notices will be going out soon to 500 people throughout the county.

But is it possible to have an unbiased jury decide the case?

News 13 legal analyst Mark NeJame said attorneys have a tough job ahead of them when picking a jury for the June trial.

An acquittal could spark protest, and it could have a long-term effect on Sanford and Seminole County, where the jurors live.

News 13 asked Nejame if that could factor into their decision.

“It can be a factor without question, and I think it is going to be incumbent on the parties, and the judge in this case, to have a sequestered jury the entire time. I think there will be people attempting to get to the jurors, through intimidation, by putting out information that might help bias or prejudice them.”

Zimmerman’s defense team could have asked for a change of venue, moving the case to a different county, but decided not to because they felt the case was too widely known for a change of venue to really have an effect.

Jury duty notices are in the mail for George Zimmerman trial
Five-hundred people are being summoned.
4:43 p.m. EDT, May 1, 2013

SANFORD – They went into the mail Wednesday, the jury notice for people who must report to the Seminole County Courthouse June 10 and decide whether George Zimmerman is a murderer.

Five-hundred Seminole County residents are being summoned, although, there's nothing on the form letter they're about to receive that spells that out.

The only hint is that the letter will read: "Report Date: June 10."

And even that does not mean the person is certain to be called to courtroom 5D, the one being used for the Zimmerman second-degree murder trial by Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson.

That's because other judges at Seminole County's two courthouses – criminal and civil – also need jurors that day.

In fact, Seminole County Clerk of Courts Maryanne Morse today sent out jury summonses to 4,300 people, enough to cover the needs of all six judges who plan trials in June.

Attorneys will pick a six-member jury plus two alternates for the Zimmerman trial, the judge said several months ago.

On Tuesday defense attorney Mark O'Mara predicted jury selection would take two to three weeks and the rest of the trial another two to three weeks.

This might not be the correct place to post this, but at least it will be in a place that we can reference.  Also, it's not confirmed that this will be the seating arrangement when the trial is held.  We'll see.

Judge wants four alternate jurors for George Zimmerman trial
10:16 a.m. EDT, May 30, 2013

SANFORD – Six jurors will decide whether George Zimmerman is guilty of second-degree murder, but during jury selection at his trial, attorneys will pick a panel of 10, four of them alternates, according to Seminole County Clerk of Courts Maryanne Morse.

Normally at a second-degree murder trial attorneys pick six jurors and two alternates, but in this case Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson is apparently building in extra protection by adding more alternates.

They typically sit in the jury box with other jurors and listen to the evidence then are released when the others go into a closed room and begin deliberations.
 
As for jury selection, the judge asked Morse to summon 500 potential jurors for the trial. Those jury service notices went into the mail May 1.

All 500 people will not show up the first day of jury selection, Morse said. On Day 1 it will be 100 to 200 people, she said, and each day after that about 100 new prospective jurors.

"The objective of the court is basically to spread them out over the five-day cycle," Morse said.

Potential jurors will be required to fill out a questionnaire then will be questioned individually, outside the earshot of other potential jurors.

They'll be asked about their jobs, family, experience with police and the court system and what they've heard about the case.

Morse said she hopes jury selection can be completed during the first week. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara earlier predicted it would take two to three weeks.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/trayvon-martin/os-george-zimmerman-trial-hearing-canceled-20130530,0,5962020.story

Media agrees not to photograph George Zimmerman jurors at trial
11:34 a.m. EDT, May 30, 2013

Tomorrow's hearing in Sanford in the George Zimmerman case has been canceled.

On Tuesday a lawyer for several media companies, including The New York Times, CBS News, NBCUniversal and The Miami Herald, indicated they'd fight for the right to photograph jurors, something Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson said she would prohibit.

She then ordered attorneys back to court tomorrow to discuss the dispute, but the media group lawyer, Scott Ponce, today filed paperwork, saying there was no dispute, that his clients would abide by a ban, provided it applied only to the courtroom and ended when the trial concludes.

Rachel Fugate, an attorney for The Orlando Sentinel, wrote a letter to the judge today, echoing that sentiment.

Both attorneys, though, object to another request by Zimmerman's attorneys - that the names of jurors be kept secret.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara asked for that, saying he's afraid journalists and others might hound panel members

Fugate on Tuesday said the judge could, for a time, withhold from the public the names of jurors but could not make it permanent.

In paperwork filed with the court today, Ponce agreed.

Monday's 4 Potential Jurors, June 10, 2013

http://www.baynews9.com/content/news/baynews9/news/article.html/content/news/articles/cfn/2013/6/10/george_zimmerman_tri_0.html

George Zimmerman trial: Meet Monday's potential jurors
Last Updated: Monday, June 10, 2013

 
B12 – A white woman who works the third shift at her job.  She told attorney’s she does not watch a lot of TV but has heard of the trial.  She’s familiar with shows like “CSI” and says she wants to keep an “open mind” and does not have a pre-determined opinion of the trial.   “B12” told the attorneys she has heard of George Zimmerman’s wife and remembers she and George had raised money from donations to pay their bills a remembers seeing a photo of Trayvon Martin in a hoodie.

B29 – A married female third-shift worker who has five children and moved to Seminole County from Chicago four months ago.  Says she never paid attention to the news and doesn’t always believe it.  She watches a lot of reality TV.   A 4-6 week trial may be a problem if she was sequestered because although her husband is supportive she doesn’t know if she would be emotionally tough enough to be.  “B29” says she has seen t-shirts and photos of Trayvon Martin and assumed he was 12 or 13 years old.  She told the attorneys she has friends who have already took sides in the case but she has not.

B30 – A 65 year old white male.  Started off with a joke when the attorneys said that he is juror B30 and he said he’d rather “be 30 than be 65” – a comment that got a chuckle from George Zimmerman and most of the courtroom.  B30 says he does not watch TV because it is “too negative” nor has he done research about the case because he’s “not tech-savvy.”  Played in a band for 20 years and that’s why he says his hearing is bad.

B76 – A white woman who says she remembers a gun involved from watching the news.  Says her family is very open-minded and has lived in Seminole County since 1981.  B76 does not have cable television or access to national newscasts.  She has discussed the case with relatives but that hasn’t lead for her to make a decision or personal judgment yet adding she can keep an open-mind and disregard what the media says.  She told the attorneys she was aware when Zimmerman was arrested and saw spokespeople from both sides on the news

George Zimmerman trial: 23 jurors questioned this week asked to return Tuesday
12:50 p.m. EDT, June 14, 2013

 
Here's a list of those jurors asked to come back Tuesday:

• B-35: A middle-aged black man who owns vending business. He was critical of the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and says this case is not racial.

• B-29: A Hispanic nurse on an Alzheimer's ward who has seven children and lived in Chicago at time of shooting.

• B-12: A middle-aged white woman who works the graveyard shift. She likes the crime-forensics show CSI and said she'd heard Zimmerman was following Trayvon.

• B-51: A retired white woman from Oviedo who has a dog and 20-year-old cat, and described herself as a former manager. She knew a good deal about the case, but said "I'm a pretty open-minded person. I'm not rigid in my thinking."

• B-7: A middle-aged white man who listens to NPR. He remembered when Florida implemented its "Stand Your Ground" law and debate then about whether it was needed.

• B-37: A middle-aged white woman who works for a chiropractor and has many pets. She described protests in Sanford as "rioting".

• B-86: A white middle-aged woman who works in the office of a middle school and has two grown sons. She said if Trayvon had not been "expelled" from school in Dade County — in actuality he was suspended — "this could have been prevented."

• B-55: A small dark-skinned woman who's a business major at college. She had almost no information about the case except for Facebook posts. "It doesn't concern me."

• E-6: A young white woman and mother who used to work in financial services. She used this case as an example to her adolescent children, warning them to not go out at night: "This kind of thing can happen."

• E-54: A middle-aged white man with a teenage stepson who wears hoodies. He recalled seeing photos of Zimmerman's head and face that show injuries.

• E-73: A middle-aged white woman active in Sanford's arts community, who is raising her late brother's 15- and 18-year-old children. The media interjected race in this case, she said.

• M-75: A young African-American woman who says many of her friends have opinions on the case, but she doesn't. Some in the black community "feel that they're being targeted," but she said she doesn't feel that way.

• B-61: A young white woman who remembered that "after the protesters, it seemed to turn more into a racial issue. ... I don't think it's a racial issue." She was critical of Al Sharpton.

• B-72: A young man who does maintenance at a school and competes in arm wrestling tournaments. He had little information about the case, saying he avoids the news because he does not want to be "brainwashed."

• E-22: A middle-aged African-American woman who said that after the shooting Sanford police should have booked Zimmerman and asked him more questions

• E-13: A young white woman who goes to college and works two jobs. She does not follow the news. She heard the shooting was a "racial thing," but said she did not know if Zimmerman had done something racist.

• E-28: A middle-aged white woman who works as a nurse. She knew little about the case and has no opinion about Zimmerman's guilt. Her husband drives her to work so she listens to his radio station, WDBO.

• K-80: A middle-aged white woman with children who has not followed the case. She considers the "racial undertones" in the case "disturbing" and called what happened a "terrible accident."

• K-95: A middle-aged woman who's a full-time college and "IT geek" with two children. She was critical of protests calling for Zimmerman's arrest, describing it as a "commotion."

• P-67: A native of Mexico who seemed eager to serve on the jury. He described it as a civic duty. "Some people think it is a racist thing," he said of the shooting, but he also said "accidents happen."

• G-14: A middle-aged white woman. "I remember a lot of anger, a lot of people upset that Mr. Zimmerman was not arrested immediately." Out-of-town protesters "didn't really know what happened," she said, and created "a discussion that did not need to be had."
