Fox News host Sean Hannity admitted Tuesday evening on his show that he spoke to Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman about a possible interview.

“Now for a few weeks we have been pursuing an interview with Mr. Zimmerman to give him a chance to tell his side of the story,” Hannity said. “Now yesterday I was contacted by an individual that we in fact believe was George Zimmerman. 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.”

Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig, the former attorneys for Zimmerman, cited his call with Hannity in their surprising press conference Tuesday afternoon.

“We believe that he spoke directly with Sean off the record and he’s not even willing to tell us what our client told him,” Uhrig said.
