The Past Comes Back To Haunt Jackson

It is reported that the prosecution, in the Michael Jackson child molestation case, wish to introduce evidence that Jackson has committed other sex crimes in the past that never went to court.

The prosecution argue that this evidence should be admitted under a 1995 California law; that lets relevant previous acts, whether prosecuted or not, be considered in sex crime cases.

The prosecution submitted a 65 page filing, which argued that their evidence will demonstrate Jackson's "propensity" for such crimes; and show how he "created the opportunities to achieve his goal."

Senior Deputy District Attorney, Gerald Franklin, said:

"As a matter of logic, the best way to prove that a man is a sex offender is to prove that he has sexually offended again and again..".

These alleged previous acts apparently took place at Neverland.

Jackson's defence team have asked for the trial to be postponed by 6 weeks, so that they can go through the 14,000 pages of evidence filed by prosecutors in the past two months.

The defence also claim that the list of 164 witnesses, provided by the prosecution, includes some badly misspelled names and names of some people who do not exist.
