less than two days since the six women that comprised the jury in the George Zimmerman trial returned a "not guilty" verdict, Monday evening saw "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed Rachel Jeantel into the studio for a fascinatingly candid conversation.
The young woman who had been talking to the late Trayvon Martin just minutes before his February 2012 death, Jeantel admitted that the case's conclusion didn't shock her:
"I had a feeling it was going to be 'not guilty,'" she said. "In my mind - well in reality - Trayvon before his death, he thought I was still on the phone. I could have called out for help or something but I wasn't on the phone."
Having reluctantly taken the stand to offer testimony on behalf of the prosecution, Jeantel unwillingly captured the national spotlight with her unique appearance and demeanor in court. Opening up and presenting an entirely different persona with Piers Morgan, on Monday she noted that Martin's specific choice in mobile device had lead her to believe that her friend was in trouble:
"If you click on the Android, it can end the call," she explained. "There was a struggle, so somebody had to be on top of Trayvon."
