Cynthia Montgomery, a travel agent, gave testimony in the Michael Jackson trial yesterday.
She told the court that she made a flight booking to Brazil for the Arvizos, after a request from Frederic Marc Schaffel a Jackson associate.
The prosecution contend that Jackson associates wanted the Arvizos to vanish to Brazil indefinitely, after the airing of the Bashir documentary.
Montgomery testified that she although was told to book a one-way flight, she reserved a round-trip flight because Americans aren't allowed into Brazil without a return ticket.
The Arvizos never actually made the flight.
Montgomery also said that she watched Jackson being taken into custody, and noted that the sheriff's deputies did not manhandle Jackson.
Jackson contended that they did, in a December 2003 60 Minutes interview. A subsequent California state investigation cleared them of any wrongdoing.
Montgomery gave her testimony under immunity, as the FBI is investigating her in connection to Jackson being secretly videotaped on a charter jet flight she booked.
Montgomery is suing Jackson for allegedly stiffing her on the charter flight's $18K fee.
Does anyone have clean hands in this case?
