She recalls Zimmerman's wife in the news, has something to do with the funds.
West to work with this witness for the defense. Prospect has been in Seminole County since 1981. "Just as a child then" says West, she agrees. Do you read the Orlando Sentinel? Get it for coupons. Gets news from Yahoo!, not from OS website. Headline news is obtained from teevee, usually a local news station. Does not have cable. Old school!
Watched some of the hearings. Must have been early on, sounds like she watched the bond hearing or thereabouts. The news had caught her attention before the hearing. She was aware when he was arrested (would have been Aprilish), she was aware of the issue before he was arrested. She has heard Martin's family on teevee, Tracy Martin, Sybrina, but does not recall hearing anything from an attorney from the families. Do you recognize anybody here from seeing them on teevee? Ends up, as she looks around, no.
Main thing she remembers, when it first happened, the media talked about the altercation, young man was shot, Zimmerman was injured. What was her reaction when she saw photos of Zimmerman's injuries? It's possible they got in a fight before the gun went off. She is aware of protests related to the case. Did that have any impact on how you view the case? No. Ever consider signing a petition or donate money? No. Trick question by West, do you recall ever sharing your opinion with your husband? She answered "no," but she earlier said she didn't have an opinion.
After consulting with jury consultant, have your children discussed this with you? Formed an opinion? Yes as to discussion, no as to opinion. We listen, but don't believe what we hear on teevee. You have to hear everything before you can reach a conclusion, and that is pretty much how the kids discuss the case.
Sidebar. I like this prospect, FWIW. Edit to add - she would have a good chance of being foreman. Seems intelligent, articulate, fair, even tempered, patient.
