    For the first time since that fateful night on February 26, the father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed an unarmed teenager sat down for a television interview.

A juror in the George Zimmerman trial has signed with a literary agent in anticipation of writing a book, the agency said.

Juror B37, whose husband is a lawyer, signed with agent Sharlene Martin of Martin Literary Management.

The juror was one of six women who cleared the neighborhood watch volunteer of second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin Saturday night afer 16 hours of deliberations.

The not-guilty verdict sparked protests across the country. President Barack Obama said the teen's death was a tragedy for America and asked Americans to respect the call for calm reflection.

The jurors have remained anonymous and were identified only by designated letters and numbers throughout the trial.

"This is a highly controversial and important case that affects many aspects of the law: 'stand your ground,' gun control laws, and, of course, race relations in the United States," Martin said in a statement.

"My hope is that people will read Juror B37's book, written with her attorney husband, and understand the commitment it takes to serve and be sequestered on a jury in a highly publicized murder trial and how important, despite one's personal viewpoints, it is to follow the letter of the law. ... The reader will also learn why the jurors had no option but to find Zimmerman not guilty due to the manner in which he was charged and the content of the jury instructions," the statement continued.

Juror B37 and her husband reached out to Martin on Sunday after being referred by a producer of a morning show.

Martin also has handled other high-profile clients, including New York Times best-sellers "If I Did" by the Goldman family and "Honor Bound" by Raffaele Sollecito and the upcoming "Picture Perfect: The Jodi Arias Story" by Shanna Hogan.
