UPDATE: Press Conference to be held LIVE on CNN. Click Here to watch
On Tuesday night, Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey told reporters that she would hold a news conference with an announcement on the case within 72 hours. According to a law enforcement official close to the investigation, Corey’s office plans to announce that she is charging the neighborhood watch volunteer as early as Wednesday afternoon. It was not made clear what specific charges Zimmerman would face. ABC reports that investigators still don’t know Zimmerman’s whereabouts.
The news of the impending announcement came shortly after a bizarre press conference in which Zimmerman’s lawyers said they no longer represent him, claiming he has repeatedly rebuffed their legal advice and that they had lost contact with him.
“As of now we are withdrawing as counsel for Mr. Zimmerman,” Craig Sonner, one of his attorneys, told reporters outside the Seminole County Courthouse in Sanford, Fla. “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.”
