• Juror questionnaire from George Zimmerman trial released


    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - On Wednesday officials from the 18th Judicial Circuit released a questionnaire that was filled out by prospective jurors prior to the start of the George Zimmerman trial in June.

    The six-question form included questions asking jurors if they had ever heard of George Zimmerman or Trayvon Martin. (Read the questionnaire)

    In the questionnaire Trayvon Martin's name was misspelled.

    It also asked if they had heard about the case would they be able to render a verdict based only on the evidence and law presented during the trial.

    Because the trial was expected to last several weeks, and there was a possibility the jury could be sequestered, the form included a question about the potential jurors' ability to participate in a trial of that length.

    Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012. Zimmerman did not deny shooting Martin, but said he did so in self-defense.

    A six-member jury found Zimmerman not guilty. The jury was sequestered for the duration of the trial.
