Cabreras Comments After Dismissal

Herson Cabreras, who is in his late 70s, previously known as Juror Number 4 in the Trump hush money criminal case in New York, has allowed the media to interview him.

Cabreras said that he was surprised he was let go because he had served on jurors before and forgot about a criminal charge he had from 30 years ago.

“That surprised me, that really surprised me,” Cabreras, told USA TODAY. “I said, ‘Wow, something else is going on here.’ But they decided not to take me, and that’s it. What can I say? So I said, ‘Fine.'”

Cabrera, who called Trump “fascinating,” said that he felt he was being thrown into a “competition” between Judge Juan Merchan, the prosecution, and the defense.

“Everybody wants to look good and fair in front of the public, but they don’t act fair,” Cabreras said.

“I didn’t expect they were going to go into my history of 30 years and pull out something I didn’t even remember,” he said.

Cabreras’ said that the entire experience made him upset and said Judge Merchan was a “cowardly judge” to let the prosecution drag him through the mud.
“I feel sorry for the other jurors,” he said, expressing concern about other jurors potentially being dragged into the center of a fiercely contested legal battle. “Because if the way they treated me is any indication of how they’re going to treat other potential jurors, then I feel sorry for them.”
Cabrera said that when push comes to shove, “they did me a favor.”
