Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner stood side-by-side as they explained to a small crowd of reporters that they couldn't find former client, George Zimmerman, which is why they'd no longer be representing him. As the Trayvon Martin case continues to capture the nation's attention, his lawyers said at press conference on Tuesday that Zimmerman he went off the grid on Easter Sunday. Zimmerman set up his own website to raise funds for his defense and spoken to the special prosecutor's office in Jacksonville against their instructions. Zimmerman also apparently called Sean Hannity directly and spoken to the Fox News host off the record. "He has not returned phone calls, text messages or emails," Uhrig said. He added, "I still believe that he was acting in self defense that night."
What's even more bizarre, Uhrig and Sonner admitted that they had never even met Zimmerman in person. "He's in hiding," Sonner said, "And it was better for him to stay hiding and stay safe than come to my office." As reporters pushed for details about the shooter's whereabouts, Uhrig turned down his brow and said to the crowd, "Stop looking in Florida because he's certainly much further away than that. That's why we couldn't meet with him."
