"I think when people see someone that they believe has so gone away from a mother's love for her child, it just outrages them," he explained (via AOL TV).

However, Jeff does feel that the trial got out of hand sometimes.

"It actually got weird, at times, to where it was almost like a sporting event and people were on a team," he said. "There were times when I wanted to look at them and just say, 'Everybody calm down. It's not a sporting event. It's more than that.' "

And Jeff does not question the judicial system, even after the "not guilty" verdict.

"You can't believe in the rule of law and not accept that sometimes it doesn't go the way you think it should."
