A Florida woman said she was molested as a child by George Zimmerman, according to interviews with police released Monday under a judge's order, The Associated Press and other media outlets reported.
Zimmerman is the former neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
In the interview, the woman, identified only as Witness No. 9, said she was fondled, groped an kissed by Zimmerman beginning when she was 6 and he was about 8, the AP reported. It continued until she was about 16, she told the wire service.
The AP reported that Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, had fought the release, calling it an "uncorroborated, irrelevant statement" in court documents.
On Monday night, O'Mara said on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight that his client denied the charges.
Zimmerman, 28, is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 death of the 17-year-old Martin, who was unarmed when he was killed in a community in Sanford. Zimmerman claims Martin attacked him. He has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
It is unclear how, or whether, prosecutors plan to use the allegations in their case against Mr. Zimmerman, who is free on $1 million bond, the New York Times reported.
Prosecutors did not return a call by The Associated Press seeking comment on whether they planned to pursue additional charges in the case.
