In an exclusive network interview, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman talk to Barbara Walters about the polarizing trial and acquittal of their son George Zimmerman, the demonstrations after the verdict, and their son’s future. This is their first network interview since Zimmerman was found not guilty for the murder of Trayvon Martin. Portions of the interview will air tonight on “World News with Diane Sawyer” (6:30 pm ET) and “Nightline” (12:35 am ET) and Tuesday on “Good Morning America” (7:00 am ET). Excerpts will also appear on ABCNews.com, ABC News Radio and ABC NewsOne.
Defense Attorney Mark O’Mara gave his first national television interview after the verdict to ABC’s Matt Gutman, who has covered the trial from the start. That interview aired Sunday evening on “ABC World News with David Muir” (Read/Watch). In addition, Gutman had the first television interview with the four Jacksonville, Florida prosecutors in the trial of George Zimmerman - Angela Corey, Bernie de la Rionda, John Guy and Rich Mantei. The exclusive aired Monday morning on “GMA” (Read/Watch).
