One of the Florida jurors who acquitted Casey Anthony of killing her 2-year-old daughter said Wednesday she doesn't necessarily think the monster mom is "innocent."
Prosecutors failed to pin the crime on her, juror Jennifer Ford said...but she also says,
Ford, otherwise known as Juror Number 3, went on to explain,
"I did not say she was innocent."
"I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, you cannot determine what the punishment should be."Ford gave no explanation though for why it took them just 10 hours to reach their shocking verdict, but said it took a toll on all of them.
"Everyone wonders why we didn't speak to the media right away,"she said.
"It was because we were sick to our stomach to get that verdict. We were crying and not just the women. It was emotional and we weren't ready."
Ford said they wanted to render a verdict
"with integrity and not contribute to the sensationalism of the trial."
Her remarks echoed those of alternate juror Russell Huekler, who said earlier that
"there was so much reasonable doubt."Ummm....they didn't think she was innocent?? So why is she getting out FREE possibly tomorrow??
Now she can never be tried again for her daughter's murder because of double jeopardy.
Juror #3, Jennifer Ford, spoke to Barbara Walters and we have the video below:

Here's the problem ... she clearly indicates that the death penalty affected her decision. The jury is NOT supposed to factor in the penalty when deciding the verdict. This was pointed out on CNN's AC360. Furthermore, the jury was questionable according to some observers:
1) None of them took many notes, which is unusual in such a complex case. 2) The decision came back surprisingly quickly for such a complex case. 3) There was no request to read back any testimony, which is again very unusual.
Juror #3 and an alternate juror also said that they thought the father was hiding something. First off, the father was not on trial. Secondly, there were many things he could have been hiding -- including THE KNOWLEDGE OF CASEY's GUILT, or his alleged affair, or many other things that should not invoke "Reasonable Doubt." If you didn't trust the dad, then simply discard his testimony. His trustworthiness has little to do with her guilt.
What could happened now? Can she be re-tried. According to expects, most likely no...unless there was fraud during the jury deliberation.
