It is reported that Gavin Arvizo's former teacher, Jeffrey Alpert, may take the stand in the Michael Jackson trial.
It seems that Gavin told Alpert, from Burroughs Middle School in Los Angeles, that "nothing happened" between him and Jackson.
The prosecutor, Tom Sneddon, and Jackson's defence team held a meeting with Alpert on Saturday.
Alpert's attorney, Thomas Forsyth, reportedly said that the meeting lasted approximately one hour; he expects his client to be called as a witness.
One thing is for sure, the legal community are doing very well out of this trial!
Yesterday Tom Mesereau, Jackson's attorney, cross-examined Gavin about what he told Alpert. Gavin admitted that he said to Alpert:
"Michael didn't do anything to me."
There are some questions as to why this witness only appeared a few days ago. Some speculate that this is not surprising. Gavin did not tell his family, friends or anyone close to him about the alleged molestation until months later; it is allegedly consistent with the embarrassment he may have felt.
Conversely he may just be lying.
