Zimmerman 'got away with murder,' says juror in interview with ABC

Saying she owes an apology to the parents of Trayvon Martin, the second juror to go public in the trial of George Zimmerman said in an interview with Robin Roberts at ABC News:
"George Zimmerman got away with murder, but you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with."
She also said she felt as if she had "let down" Travyon's parents.
Parts of the interview will run on World News with Diane Sawyer at 6:30 PM ET Thursday, with additional bits on Nightline, and the full interview appearing on Good Morning America Friday.
None of the jurors have been publicly named yet, and ABC only addresses Juror B-29 in the interview as "Maddy." She is the only racial minority who served on the six-woman Florida jury that acquitted Zimmerman in the slaying of Martin. Of Puerto Rican heritage, she works as a certified nursing assistant in an Alzheimer's ward, is married and has eight children.
She said she was deeply conflicted about the case:
[O]n the second day of deliberations, after spending nine hours discussing the evidence, Maddy said she realized there wasn't enough proof to convict Zimmerman of murder or manslaughter under Florida law.[...]
"That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it," Maddy said. "But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty." [...]
"I felt like I let a lot of people down, and I'm thinking to myself,'Did I go the right way? Did I go the wrong way?'" she said.
"As much as we were trying to find this man guilty…they give you a booklet that basically tells you the truth, and the truth is that there was nothing that we could do about it," she said. "I feel the verdict was already told."
