LUX-JURY

Zimmerman Jury Got Pedicures

Sounds more like vacation than sequestration. The Seminole County Sheriff's office has released a $33,000 bill for the 22-day sequestration of the six women jurors in the George Zimmerman trial. While holed up in individual rooms in the Florida Marriott, jurors watched TV, exercised, and visited with family and friends. They also went on field trips to the movies, bowling, and to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum and enjoyed manicures and pedicures. And for dinner? Outback Steakhouse. While it might seem like the sequestered women were living it up, they allegedly paid for personal purchases and appointments. Plus, they earned a little R&R. Florida attorney Randy Reep put it this way: "A Bloomin’ Onion at Outback would not adequately reimburse these women for the bitterness" that they might receive.
