Freeman faces 14 total charges, including five counts of first-degree rape, five counts of kidnapping and six counts of forcible sodomy.

One victim testified she and Freeman made an agreement to exchange sex for $40, but things “got ugly” when she noticed he wasn’t wearing a condom.

She said Freeman threatened to break her neck while they had sex, then told her he was a police officer as he went through her things.

The next victim said Freeman forced her to have sex after she got a ride from him. She struggled to tell her story, telling the court Freeman punched her in the face and she was afraid he might kill her.

There's one more victim's story to hear.

The district attorney said they expect the trial to continue into next week.
