This story will be updated as new events unfold
Zimmerman's attorneys announced they have stepped down and are no longer representing him
Attorneys say Zimmerman has not stayed in contact with them, scheduled media appearance with Sean Hannity on his own
"It's no so much that we are resigning. It's that we cannot continue to represent him until he comes forward," said attorney Craig Sonner
"He's got to reach out to us," Uhrig said
Despite stepping away from Zimmerman as a client, both attorneys say they continue to believe he acted in self-defense. "We frankly believe the correct decision will be to not charge him," Uhrig said.
The attorneys say they know of Zimmerman's location and have his personal phone number but have been unable to reach him directly for 48 hours.
"George can't go out and buy a Diet Coke. There's a bounty on his head," Uhrig said.

Also in question are the GZ website(s) and paypal account(s)?
Maybe he was trying to find out from the prosecutor how to change attorneys. Or giving her office different contact information than the attorney’s address etc. Particularly if he was not happy with their “Advice”
That is not a function of a prosecutor’s office.
The guy who came up with “shaken brain syndrome” should probably be fired anyways
I agree with you. That sounded looney.
If he is smart he’s getting out of the Country while the getting is good! Head south and don’t look back...Our thug in chief along with Holder can’t afford for George to go free and the black community is out for his blood.
All anyone knows for sure, is that Zimmerman shot Martin. These rest is a media circus...led by the Hymietown ringmasters. We may never know the truth.
Did they give out his contact information to someone or otherwise expose him to danger?
His lack of communication with them may OTOH be a ruse.
Maybe he was using Hannity to get the word out that he was in the market for a new attorney.
I hope Zimmerman hasn’t committed suicide.
this is very strange...
Unless...he will come out with a very high powered legal team!
“Or a jet gassed up and ready.”
I think Mr. Zimmerman ought to be thinking “Australia” or “New Zealand”, or at least “Canada” where his future is concerned.
Nice nic, by the way...
Pro se legal representation
An attorney who hasn’t a clue where his client actually is and who wants to flush his client out. If Zimmerman doesn’t call them now, the case has gone bizzare totally.
His family has NOT said they can’t get hold of him.
My guess is they were pressuring him for money (which even we know he doesn’t have....YET)
He isn’t under contract with them. Only two days, since Sunday??? Why be upset for such a short period of time? Even my family may go a couple of days without contact.
Is Zimmerman getting paid to appear on Hannity?
I was just joking. I should have put a ;) to let you know.
Your 58 to my almost 42. If you were a girl living on my block, you would have been babysitting us!!!
Now, your 58 doesn’t seem very far off my almost 42.
Anywho, I’ve always had a hard time relating to segregation. I just can’t believe the history I read (rhetorical of course).
This a hole “Pres__ent” wants things back the way they were, but opposite.
“FOX Contributors” get paid. Don’t know how they handle an interview like this.
[If I were in George Zimmermans shoes, I would be pleading my innocence from the rooftops. Thats just me.]
Exactly. By not responding in public, you let the lynch mob build.
There is no case here. The SYGlaw states you must be in fear of your life. Injuries or not is not an issue. Who’s to day “Z” did not “fear” for his life?
