George ZImmerman facing molestation allegations

SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman is facing new accusations of a different kind and it's from a member of his family.

Audio recordings of testimony from a woman identified as “Witness 9” were released Monday. In them, the woman accused his family of racism.

She also accused him of molesting her when they were children for about a decade.

Zimmerman's lawyer says her testimony is inadmissible.

"My frustration is they're absolutely not relevant to anything that is at hand in the true case,” said Attorney Mark O’Mara.

Prosecutors haven't said yet if they plan to use the woman's testimony in their case against Zimmerman.

Zimmerman is currently being charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

He has pleaded not guilty and said he shot Martin in self-defense after he was attacked.
