In a shocking turn of events, George Zimmerman’s two attorney’s — Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig — announced they were withdrawing from the case. They said they have lost track of Zimmerman and have not been able to contact him for several days.
At various times during the press conference, both attorneys said they did not know where Zimmerman is currently.
Uhrig told the press that, if people are trying to find Zimmerman, they should “stop looking in Florida” and “look much farther way.” This directly contradicts what Craig Sonner said on March 23 when he assured a reporter from WFTV that “he’s absolutely in the state, he’s local.”
