Barbara Walters to Interview Casey Anthony Lawyer Jose Baez Beginning Tonight
Barbara Walters will sit down with Casey Anthony’s lead lawyer Jose Baez in his first network interview since the jury acquitted his client of murder, manslaughter and child endangerment charges yesterday in Orlando, Florida. In a wide-ranging interview, Walters will ask Baez about his courtroom strategy, his client’s demeanor, the reasons he thinks she was found not guilty, how he was ceaselessly second-guessed by trial watchers and the media during the six weeks of testimony, and his newfound fame, among other topics.
Portions of the interview will air tonight on “World News with Diane Sawyer” (6:30 – 7:00 pm ET/PT), “Casey Anthony: Not Guilty” a “Primetime Nightline” Special (10:00 – 11:00 pm ET/PT) and again tomorrow, Thursday, July 7 on “Good Morning America” (7:00 – 9:00 am ET/PT) and “The View” (11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET/PT).
Interview excerpts will also air across ABC News’ platforms, including ABC News Radio, ABC News NOW, ABCNEWS.com, and ABC NewsOne.
