Prior Sex Offences

The prosecution team, in the forthcoming Michael Jackson, trial are attempting to have evidence of previous sexual offences admitted to the trial.

It is reported that they have evidence relating to seven previous offences, allegedly committed by Jackson.

The defence, not surprisingly, wants the evidence barred; as, in their view, the evidence is flimsy.

Judge Rodney Melville will decide next week as to whether the evidence will be admitted. His prime concern will be as to whether admission of previous offences will prejudice the trial.
