George Zimmerman Accused of Sexual Molestation by Family Friend

George Zimmerman has been accused of a new heinous crime.

In just-released audio tapes related to the Trayvon Martin shooting, a family friend - who simply goes by the moniker "Witness9" - tells authorities that Zimmerman sexually molested her many times between the ages of 6 and 16.

"He would reach under the blankets and try to do things," the woman says, adding that the incidents mostly took place at Zimmerman's parents' house. "I would try to push him off, but he was bigger, stronger and older."

The unidentified female was contacted by prosecutors about a month after the Martin shooting, with these tapes recorded on March 20. She told investigators she finally came forward with the allegations because it marked the first time in her life she was "not afraid" of Zimmerman.

The woman said she has no knowledge of the shooting in question, but verified that Zimmerman made disparaging remarks about African-Americans when the two were young.

Zimmerman was eight years old and the woman six when the alleged molestations began. She added that she was not his only victim.

"He was very charming and personable with everybody in the family. But he was different behind closed doors with me... He was very intimidating."

The final incident took place when the woman was 16, she said, explaining that Zimmerman massaged her neck and kissed her until she ran out of the room. He was supposedly confronted about the actions by the woman and her parents in 2005, quickly apologized and walked away.

Zimmerman remains in jail at the moment as a judge decides whether to reinstate his bail.
