George Zimmerman Dropped by His Lawyers After He Went Rogue
George Zimmerman has just lost his attorneys. Well, acutally his attorneys have lost track of him. They haven't heard from him in days but know he's been making recent moves against their advice. So basically they held a news conference today to say they've withdrawn from the case.
"We can't represent him unless he comes forward and asks us," Uhrig says.
They also say they were unaware that Zimmerman planned to set up his own website asking for donations, and would have advised against it.
They were also made aware that Zimmerman, against their advice, independently contacted the special prosecutor charged with investigating the case in Florida. Special prosecutor Angela Corey's office refused to speak with him without proper legal counsel, however.
