Michael Jackson, and family, turned up to Santa Maria yesterday; to watch "Jane Doe", the mother of the child allegedly molested by Jackson, testify.
In order not to draw attention to themselves, the Jacksons wore white.
Jackson's lawyer, Thomas Mesereau, cross examined "Jane"; and tried to get her to confirm that she knew that the investigator, whose offices were searched by the prosecution, had told her he was working for the Jackson defence team.
"Jane" failed to recall if he had told her this, she had assumed that he was working for Jackson.
Whilst this may seem to be splitting hairs it is, if you are a lawyer, vital; for if the defence can prove that she knew that he was working for them, the evidence collected from the search of his offices would be disbarred from the trial.
Jackson, as befitting someone regarded by some of his fans as a minor "god", was greeted with cheers when he arrived at the California courthouse yesterday.
Banners with pictures of him, and phrases such as "we love you" were held aloft.
One person braved the wrath of the crowd, by displaying a sign that read "We Support the Victim".
