Casey Anthony’s jurors have remained mum about the trial and surprising verdict, but now one of them is opening up about what happened behind those closed court room doors!

We can’t say we blame the members of Casey Anthony‘s jury for refusing interviews yesterday after the world was shocked by their verdict finding the 25-year-old mother ‘not guilty.’ However, we have been dying to know what actually happened behind those court room walls — and now one of the jurors, Jennifer Ford, is speaking for the first time!

“I did not say she was innocent,” Jennifer told ABC News July 6. “I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, you cannot determine what the punishment should be.”

She added, “Everyone wonders why we didn’t speak to the media right away. It was because we were sick to our stomach to get that verdict. We were crying, and not just the women. We weren’t ready [to comment]. We wanted to do it with integrity and not contribute to the sensationalism of the trial.”

Contrary to what you’d imagine in a case as depressing as this one, Jennifer said her time on the jury wasn’t horrible, primarily because of the people she met.

“They picked a great bunch of people, such high integrity. And there was high morale,” she said. “We all joked. We are like a big group of cousins.”

Do YOU think Casey Anthony’s jury made the right decision? Sound off below.
