Juror No. 9 Talks Exclusively To FOX 29 About Abortion Doctor Trial

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

"I did cry, I did cry," said Robin Griggs. She's carrying a heavy weight.

"They were big babies. They had color. They looked like they had life."

Griggs is No. 9 on the jury that convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell for killing three babies after delivering them alive during illegal late term abortions.

"I just thought about the pain that baby might have felt and I just couldn't believe a mother would lay their and let him do that to her baby," said Griggs. She is now venting her experience sitting months listening to horrific testimony and looking at gruesome pictures.

"How he performed his late term abortions wasn't right. I think somewhere down the line he kind of got lost," Griggs said. She described Gosnell as arrogant.

"When some of his employees would come up and testify against him and say things, he would kind of look at them like I don't believe she or he is saying this," recalls Griggs. "I think he's an intelligent man and that money and greed took over. I think he kind of preyed on people with low self esteem and who had problems," she said.

Griggs said she's glad Gosnell accepted a deal for life in prison meaning the jury did not have to decide on the death penalty.

"I feel relieved. I felt it was emotional for me knowing that this man's life was in our hands."

Griggs' family collected newspapers every day covering the trial. She plans to read them all but after that she's not sure if she can shake the images of the babies embedded in her mind.

She said, "I don't know if I could ever get it out of my head. Being up close and personal is totally different from what you see on the television or what they write about in newspapers."

Griggs said she and the other jurors wished Gosnell would've taken the stand. They wanted to hear from him but they stand by their verdict.
