(AP) — A Florida woman claims she was molested as a child by George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who is charged in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. In an interview with police released Monday under a judge's order, the woman said she was fondled, groped and kissed by Zimmerman beginning when she was 6 and he was about 8. Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, had fought the release, calling it an "uncorroborated, irrelevant statement" in court documents. 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. "Adding this statement to the discourse will simply be another piece of the puzzle to be relied upon by those who want to believe there was a racial motive to the shooting, and will be dismissed by those who claim that there was no such motive" Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester wrote.
