Strange: Zimmerman Lawyers Withdraw

Posted by on Apr 10, 2012 at 4:58 pm

The saga of George Zimmerman gets stranger by the day.

The two attorneys who have been representing George Zimmerman announced at a press conference moments ago that they are withdrawing as his legal counsel.

“On Sunday, we lost track of George, in that he would not return our calls,” attorney Hal Uhrig said. Said attorney Craig Sonner, “I’ve lost contact with him at this point.”

Sonner and Uhrig, who have been publicly representing Zimmerman in the media, said that Zimmerman has not been answering their phone calls.

The lawyers said Zimmerman called Sean Hannity of Fox News without consulting with them. He also called the Special Prosecutor in the case, something the attorneys said they’d never have told him to do.

“We were a bit astonished,” Uhrig said.

Sonner said that he’d be willing to represent Zimmerman again in the future, if Zimmerman were to get back in contact with him.
