ONLY ON 3: Juror tapped to speak for Craft jury speaks out

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The juror tapped by his peers to speak on behalf of the group granted one television interview the day after the verdict. He spoke with Channel 3 Eyewitness News.

The juror, who works at a bank in downtown Chattanooga, told us of sleepless nights for all jurors. The juror, who did not want his name revealed, tells us that the jury was "absolutely unanimous, no division, no arguing, we were in absolute one accord."

The juror told Channel 3 that he and his peers were all "people of faith" and decided to pray each day and even prayed over the verdict before delivering it to the Court.

He said that during deliberation there was never a time when all eyes were dry of tears. The juror said that at no time during the trial did he watch news coverage, read websites, or social media sites. He says his peer jurors said they did not either. In fact, many of the jurors talked about using their DVR to record favorite shows in order to fast forward through nightly news promos during primetime viewing.
