Michael Jackson is Guilty

Whilst the general public may be prepared to suspend their judgement on Michael Jackson's guilt or innocence.

It seems that his family have already made their minds up.

It is reported that Michael's brother, Jermaine, has revealed that the Jackson family are sure that he is guilty of molesting children.

Apparently Jermaine has said that he thinks that Michael is guilty of molesting the boy who is currently accusing him, as well as others.

Jermaine is then reported to have said that he isn't the only family member who thinks Michael is guilty, he implied that the majority of Jacksons do as well.

So much for innocent until proven guilty!

Does Jackson Have a Case?

Following on from yesterday's post, about the prosecution in the Michael Jackson case complaining about the tardiness of the defence team in handing over material, it seems that the prosecution are alleging that there is in fact no defence.

Part of the problem may lie in the fact that Jackson has used 6 different law firms, and 10 attorneys, since the charges were made a year ago.

That does not seem to be terribly bright.

Meanwhile the defence team argue they don't have to hand over anything until 30 days before the trial, which starts on 31 January 2005.

One Sided

It is reported that the prosecutors in the child molestation case against Michael Jackson say that they have handed over thousands of pages of documents, and hundreds of audio and videotapes relating to their case to the defence.

Yet they have not yet received anything in return.

Suicide Watch

A British tabloid reports that Michael Jackson's family are worried that he may commit suicide, if he is convicted of sexual assault.

Jackson's relatives are, allegedly, holding weekly meetings to decide the best possible way to help him.

Jermaine Jackson is quoted in The Sun as saying "Michael ain't going to jail, he's going to commit suicide first..".

Moonwalk Backslide?

It is reported that Michael Jackson may not have invented the Moonwalk, his signature dance step.

His sister, LaToya, has very helpfully claimed on a British TV show hosted by Frank Skinner that a dancer from the TV show Soul Train taught him the step.

LaToya claims that it was called the backslide, Michael changed the name after learning its routine.

Doubtless this will provide another opportunity for litigation.

The legal fraternity must be licking their lips.

Jackson Lawyer Quits

One of Michael Jackson's lawyers, Steve Cochran, has quit the team. It is reported that he left for "confidential reasons".

Jackson has been decent enough to thank him publicly, on his website, for his work:

"I would like to thank Attorney Steve Cochran for all the hard work he has done on my behalf.... Unfortunately, he has taken a temporary leave of absence, for his own confidential reasons, from my defence tea, but will continue to collaborate..."

Cuisine Fit For a King

Michael Jackson has hired a top Indian chef to be his personal chef, during his forthcoming visit to London in November.

Raj Bajwe, manager of Cafe India based in Glasgow, will fly to London next month to cook Jackson his favourite vegetarian Indian meals. These include "Saag Paneer", "Allo Golu", "pakora", fried rice dishes, "chapatis" and "naan" breads.

Jackson's favourite, according to Raj, is "Saag Paneer"'(spinach cooked with cheese).

Raj and two assistants will travel to London to cook the meals, in the kitchen of the five star hotel where he will be staying.

The Fear

Raymond Chandler, author of "All That Glitters", has given an interview to a British tabloid.

In this, he states that Jordie and his family were subjected to death threats by Michael Jackson's fans; when the allegations about abuse he claims to have suffered at the hands of Jackson became public in the 90's.

Apparently, Jordie's father received a decapitated rat with the message "You're next" tied to it.
