Actor George Lopez will take the stand for the prosecution next week, in the Michael Jackson trial.
This is something of a surprise, as it was assumed that he would appear on behalf of the defence.
Lopez met Gavin Arvizo in 2000, whilst Gavin was being treated for cancer in 2000.
It had been assumed that Lopez would appear for the defence, and recount the allegation about the Arvizo father trying to claim that Lopez had found Gavin's wallet with $300 inside.
Lopez and his wife, Ann, found the wallet, but it contained only $3. Arvizo senior made a messy attempt to get Gavin to allege that the wallet contained $300, seemingly Gavin refused.
The strategy for the prosecution is clear; cut loose from the rest of the Arvizo's and show that Gavin, at least, has some credibility.
