    A former Massachusetts prosecutor has been charged with rape, court officials confirmed Wednesday.

    Gary Zerola faces two counts of rape from an incident that allegedly happened Nov. 10.

    Not many details being released, but the commonwealth says there will be strong medical evidence.

    The Boston lawyer is no stranger to these kind of charges. In fact, this is his fourth time. But he has beaten all of them in the past, and his attorney says the latest accusations are based on "a foundation of lies."

    In 2008, Zerola was acquitted in two rape cases out of Boston and had another dropped in Florida.

    The former top prosecutor was also once one of People Magazine's top bachelors.

    But any other details of what the bachelor is accused of doing this time have been sealed. A document shows that the judge impounded it to protect the identity of the alleged victim.

    Zerola has been held on $10,000 bail. He will be fitted with a GPS monitor Monday.

    Zerola's attorney, Joseph Krowski, said the case "is nothing more than a target in this case," and that the case is "based upon a foundation of lies and we vigorously look forward to our day in court."
