Lawyers representing the man who killed Trayvon Martin said: they haven’t heard from their client in days and word on the street is he hasn’t paid them for legal fees thus far.
Zimmerman’s lawyers called a hasty press conference today to announce their decision to quit as Zimmerman’s legal counsel. The lawyers say they can’t find Zimmerman, who gunned down 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, Feb. 26.
The attorney’s state, Zimmerman is not in the state of Florida period.
Attorney Craig Sonner said he lost contact with Zimmerman on Sunday. He told the media that Zimmerman refused to answer phone calls and emails since Sunday. Zimmerman reportedly called Fox News’ Sean Hannity, and the special prosecutor to give his side of the story — a very unusual move.
Hannity is refusing to disclose what Zimmerman told him.
According to CNN legal analyst Jeff Toobin, the lawyers are “setting [Zimmerman] up for an arrest.”
We will continue to Watch, Wait and see how this will play out.
