It is reported that Vincent Amen, a key defence witness in the forthcoming Michael Jackson trial, won't testify.
Amen is rumoured to be one of the 5 alleged co-conspirators in the Jackson case. He worked for Jackson from February 2003, as a chauffeur to the family who are at the centre of the child molestation allegations.
It is alleged that Amen spent some considerable time with the family.
To ask a naive question here, why did the family accept such a "gift" from Jackson?
Amen is reported to be prepared to invoke the Fifth Amendment, if he is subpoenaed to appear.
It is rumoured that Amen has evidence of the family enjoying Jackson's largesse, in the 6 weeks following the infamous Martin Bashir interview.
