On his Fox News program, Sean Hannity confirmed that he spoke to George Zimmerman about his case, but said that he did not know anything about the situation regarding his attorneys. Zimmerman’s attorneys dropped him as a client after losing contact with him, and learning that he reached out on his own to Hannity as well as the special prosecutor in the case.

“Yesterday I was contacted by an individual that we in fact believe was George Zimmerman,” Hannity said. “He reached out to me, we spoke on the phone about his case, and I agreed not to report on the contents of that conversation. That’s it. I know nothing about his relationship with his now former attorneys.”
