The woman known as Juror B37 told CNN's Anderson Cooper Monday July 15, 2013 that Zimmerman made some poor decisions leading up to the shooting, but that Martin wasn't innocent either. The juror said Sanford Police Detective Chris Serino made a big impression on her, because he would have been accustomed to dealing with murders and similar cases. He would have known how to spot a liar, and yet he testified that he believed Zimmerman, the juror said. (AP Photo/Orlando Sentinel, Joe Burbank, File)
