Jennifer Ford, the first member of the Casey Anthony trial jury to speak publicly, wants to clear up a few things about Tuesday's stunning not guilty verdict.
Namely, don't take it as a full exoneration.
"I did not say she was innocent," Ford told ABC News on Wednesday. "I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, then you cannot determine what the punishment should be."
The jury's decision shocked many observers, but it was also difficult for the panel, she said, explaining why no one spoke to media after the verdict.
"Everyone wonders why we didn't speak to the media right away," Ford said.
"It was because we were sick to our stomachs to get that verdict. We were crying, and not just the women. It was emotional and we weren't ready. We wanted to do it with integrity and not contribute to the sensationalism of the trial."
