Zimmerman Trial Jurors Offered Counseling

Went bowling and saw movies together while sequestered


The all-female jury in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial was under close watch by court deputies during the 22-day sequester and spent plenty of quality time together, including trips to get manicures and pedicures and movie and bowling outings, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office revealed Wednesday.

Beginning on June 21, the six-woman jury lived in a Marriott hotel in Lake Mary, Fla., and was closely monitored to prevent them from any exposure to outside information about the case.

Each had an individual room, but the jurors would frequently meet for meals and to socialize, according to a statement from the sheriff's office released Wednesday. But in all their time together they were not allowed to discuss the case until deliberations began.
