Trayvon Martin''s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, will be attending the trial of George Zimmerman when he battles charges of murdering their unarmed son as he walked home from a 7-11, is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bail from a Florida jail at midnight Monday. Zimmerman exited the jail in a quiet scene, getting into a white BMW headed to an undisclosed location. As conditions of his bail, the 28-year-old -- who handed in his passport -- must follow a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew, cannot possess any firearms and must wear an electronic device.

In his bail hearing last Friday, prosecutors requested $1 million bail, but the judge set the amount to $150,000; Zimmerman had to post 10 percent of that amount ($15,000) prior to his release Monday.

"Tracy and Sabrina will be attending George Zimmerman's murder trial every day once it begins. They will also cooperate with Special Prosecutor Angela Corey's office to appear anytime they are requested for pre-trial matters," Natalie Jackson, one of the attorneys representing the Martin family, told exclusively.

Sybrina and Tracy took out space in Sunday's Miami Herald to post a letter thanking the community for their outreach and support since their son's death.

"Words will never express how your love, support and prayers lifted our spirits and continue to give us the strength to march on," they wrote.

If convicted, Zimmerman could face up to life in prison. The case has caused national controversy, as Zimmerman was not arrested for 44 days following the shooting.
