Michael Jackson's Trials

Michael Jackson's Trials


The Ongoing Trials of The Late Michael Jackson

Saturday, November 13, 2004


The ex girlfriend of Joseph Bartucci, the man who has accused Michael Jackson of sexually abusing him, has said that Bartucci is a conman.

Bartucci filed a complaint against Jackson in New Orleans, last week, alleging that he was sexually abused by Jackson in 1984.

Hope Horne, Bartucci's ex, is so disgusted with Bartucci's behaviour that she went on TV; to point out to the USA that Bartucci is a conman and a liar.

Jackson Loses It

Michael Jackson upped the ante, in his ongoing spat with Eminem, over Eminem's video "Just Lose It".

Jackson's fans, about 20 of them, assembled outside of MTV studios in Times Square in New York yesterday; they were protesting about the Eminem video.

Oddly enough, Fox news were covering the "impromptu" event; and had a "mystery" caller live on air.

No mystery, it was Jackson; who said:

"It's demeaning and disrespectful....I love them (my fans) so much...."

"...And I also want to make it clear that it's not just about Michael Jackson but about a pattern of disrespect that he has shown to our community," Jackson said of the white rapper.............He needs to stop it, and he needs to stop it now..."

Black Entertainment Television (BET) has agreed to stop broadcasting the video, but MTV has ignored Jackson's request.

The video shows a Jackson look-alike on a bed surrounded by children.

In the song Eminem says:

"Come here little kiddie, on my lap. Guess who's back with a brand new rap? And I don't mean rap, as in a case of child molestation."

Eminem's fans were unimpressed.

I have said it before, but will bore you all again by repeating myself. Jackson needs to concentrate on the more pressing, and urgent, issue of his forthcoming trial.

Shop Till You Drop

Michael Jackson, as you would expect, likes to spend money on designer labels and in upmarket stores.

Now, those of you who want to see precisely where he spends his money can see for yourselves.

Records from such names as Bergdorf Goodman, Banana Republic and Nordstroms were among the documents seized by investigators in Michael Jackson's child molestation case, according to court records which were released yesterday.

These documents were seized as recently as the beginning of November 2004, and mainly relate to the past 2 months.

Quite how they relate to the case is unclear, maybe Jackson finds spending money to be therapeutic?

The Gloves Are Off

Michael Jackson's lawyers are going to use the different dates, used in the case against Jackson, to attack Jackson's accusers; labeling them as liars.

The original criminal complaint, accused Jackson of lewd acts on 7 occasions between February 7 and March 20 2003. The grand jury later alleged 4 lewd acts, committed between February 20 and March 12 2003.

The defence allege that the dates have changed, because the story has changed; as a result of the accusers being liars.

The prosecution have retorted that the dates have not changed that much, and that the story is essentially the same.

Organised Rallies

The prosecution team in the Michael Jackson child molestation case have alleged that the Jackson team held organised rallies, shades of Nuremberg perhaps?, outside of the Santa Barbara court house.

The prosecution claim to have evidence that the rallies were co-ordinated to generate positive PR for Jackson.

The defence team deny this.

Whilst the judge has ruled that if the rallies were organised, they did not breach the law.

Pop stars organising rallies of fans, surely not?

Grouchy Judge

It seems that Judge Rodney Melville, the judge in the Michael Jackson trial, is becoming a tad grouchy with the ongoing arguments between the defence and prosecution teams.

In fact, he admitted as much on Friday.

Melville reiterated that Jackson's trial would start on 31 January 2005. He tartly remarked that both sides should make sure that they are ready for this, and the hearings that will accompany the trial.


"if we're going to go to trial by Jan. 31, and we are..."

Putting The Boot In

Life just seems to be getting harder for Michael Jackson.

It is reported that one of Jackson's defence witnesses has just filed a law suit against him.

Marc Schaffel, a former Hollywood porn producer, worked with Jackson when he was accused of molesting a young boy at his Neverland ranch.

Schaffel is writing a book about Jackson, there's a positive glut of Jackson books on the market now, and is taking Jackson to court to claim an unpaid debt for video work.

Schaffel's book is allegedly going to reveal sensational details of Jackson's life.
