Five of them are white and one is black. Their ethnicity is unknown. Five of them are mothers. Two of them have lived in Seminole County for less than eight months. Two are closely related to attorneys and two work in the medical field. B-29 is a woman, whose ethnicity is unclear. She is the only woman of color in the jury.

B-76 is a white woman who is a longtime Sanford resident. She relies on an over-the-air antenna for T.V. news. Her son is an attorney who deals with foreclosures and bankruptcies. State wanted to get rid of B-76 because of a comment she made during her interview. Her daughter, she said, did not think it was acceptable for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to be out late at night.
