CONTEXT: On Monday evening George Zimmerman created a website for himself in order to solicit donations to support his "living expenses and legal defense." The first two photos featured on therealgeorgezimmerman.com were a vandalized black cultural center at Ohio State University and another photo from a rally held by Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones. The validity of the website has been confirmed by Zimmerman's attorneys, CNN, NBC, CBS and most recently, Fox News
Today, George Zimmerman's attorneys quit.
"As of now we are withdrawing as counsel for Mr. Zimmerman," Craig Sonner, one of his attorneys, told reporters outside the Seminole County Courthhouse in Sanford, Fla. "We've lost contact with him. Up to this point, we've had contact with him everyday. He's gone on his own. I'm not sure what he's doing or who he's talking to, but at this point we're withdrawing as counsel. If he wants us to come back as counsel, he will contact us." ... "We learned that he had called Sean Hannity of Fox News directly — not through us," Uhrig said. "We believe that he spoke directly with Sean off the record and [Hannity's] not even willing to tell us what our client told him."
