One of the six women on the George Zimmerman jury spoke on Monday, giving a bit of insight of behind-the-doors discussion and saying the general consensus was 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was the aggressor.

“I think George got in a little too deep, which he shouldn’t have been there,” said the juror, who appeared on CNN with her identity shielded. “But Trayvon decided that he was going to let him scare him and get the over up on him or something, and I think Trayvon got mad and attacked him.”

The jury found Mr. Zimmerman, 29, not guilty of murder in the shooting death of Martin in Sanford, Fla., in February 2012.

The juror known as B-37 also said that Mr. Zimmerman had a right to defend himself.

“I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods,” she said, CBS reported. “I think he’s guilty of not using good judgment. When he was in the car and he called 911, he shouldn’t have gotten out of that car.”
