Mark O'Mara
DELTONA, Fla. -

The attorney for George Zimmerman will be representing the Deltona firefighter accused of raping several women.

The law firm for attorney Mark O'Mara, who represented Zimmerman in his second-degree murder trial for the death of Trayvon Martin, confirmed on Wednesday O'Mara will represent Terry Freeman.

Freeman, 32, of Deltona, was arrested Dec. 31 after a woman claimed she was raped by him after they met at a Sanford furniture store, sparking a string of victims alleging Freeman attacked them as well to come forward.

The latest charge marked the sixth case Freeman was charged in out of a total of 12 victims, with an additional victim reported, according to Volusia County Sheriff's Office. The Orange City Police Department has also filed a seventh case with the State Attorney's Office.

Freeman has been charged with one count of sexual battery with a deadly weapon/force, three counts of sexual battery using force, one count of sexual battery with no physical force, one count of attempted sexual battery and one count of false imprisonment.

Zimmerman was acquitted in July 2013.
