Witness Claims George Zimmerman Molested Her Since She Was 6
The witness spoke to investigators with the Duval County State Attorney's Office sometime after the shooting. Known only as Witness #9, she is about two years younger than Zimmerman.
From CBS Miami:
"He would put his hand under my pants and under my underwear and basically just finger me, I guess," explained Witness 9.When Zimmerman was 14 and she was 12, Witness #9 claims Zimmerman told her he had surgery on his penis due to urination problems. She says Zimmerman made her look at his penis and the scars.
She was asked, "Did he put his finger inside of you?"
She replied, "Yes, and there were other times he did things too but he would always call them, before we left the room or left anyplace he would say, 'We weren't doing anything, we were just laying down or we were just playing hide and seek,' and he would always make sure that he told me that and I didn't know. I was a kid, I didn't know any better."
Witness #9 also said she believes that Zimmerman and his parents are racist. According to WFTV, she says Zimmerman's mother, who is of Peruvian decent, said she did not like President Barack Obama because he is black.
Audio of the interview was released today along with other evidence in the case. However, Zimmerman's attorney was successful in having portions of the accusations sealed. The accusations will likely not come up during Zimmerman's trial, and he has not been charged with any crimes related to the alleged molestation.
