Tricky Stuff, Law

Information is now hitting the net about what went on at the June 10th hearing, in Santa Barbara, in respect of the charges made against Michael Jackson for alleged child molestation.

It seems that Robert Sanger, for the defence, stated that they would be seeking to file a 995 motion by June 25 (when the next hearing is scheduled).

A 955 motion means that the defence is stating that the indictment against Michael Jackson was made without reasonable/probable cause. In other words, the defence team are trying to dismiss the charges.

Judge Melville has ordered that the 955 motion be sealed until a hearing can be held. He wants the arguments to be made publicly, that way the law can be seen to be being upheld.
