(USA TODAY) -- A juror in the George Zimmerman trial said Tuesday she is dropping plans to write about her account of the controversial case.
juror, still known only by her court designation as juror B-37, issued
the statement less than 24 hours after her new literary agent, Sharlene
Martin, had announced plans for a book co-authored by the juror's
husband, who is an attorney.
Martin tweeted the juror's change of plans Tuesday and also announced that she had decided to rescind her offer of representation.
juror said in her statement that the isolation of being sequestered
"shielded me from the depth of pain that exists among the general public
over every aspect of this case."

potential book was always intended to be a respectful observation of
the trial from my and my husband's perspectives solely and it was to be
an observation that our 'system' of justice can get so complicated that
it creates a conflict with our 'spirit' of justice," she said in the statement.
"Now that I am returned to my family and to society in general, I have
realized that the best direction for me to go is away from writing any
sort of book and return instead to my life as it was before I was called
to sit on this jury."
Martin, in announcing initially on Monday
that she had signed the juror, said the book would deal with serving on a
sequestered jury in a highly publicized murder trial and the importance
of following the letter of the law.
"The reader will also
learn why the jurors had no option but to find Zimmerman Not Guilty due
to the manner in which he was charged and the content of the jury
instructions," Martin had said on Monday.
Martin also said
at the time that the juror had approached her within 24 hours of the
verdict and had been referred by a "high-ranking producer from one of
the morning shows."
Juror B-37 had quickly staked out a high-profile in the case after the verdict, appearing on Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday night.
told the CNN anchor that Zimmerman was "a man whose heart was in the
right place," but he went too far and did not use good judgment.
to notes from the jury selection process, juror B-37 is a white,
middle-aged woman from Seminole County who works as a chiropractor. She
is the daughter of an Air Force captain, has two adult children and and
has been married to a space attorney for 20 years.
Under pre-trial questioning, she described the protests that took place in Sanford, Florida, after she shooting as "rioting."
