It is reported that Ahmad Elatab, a potential defence witness in the Michael Jackson trial, has been arrested in New Jersey for allegedly having sex with a minor.
Elatab is in police custody and faces charges of sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and impairing the morals of a minor.
The alleged victim is a 14 year old girl, who knew Elatab from a belly dancing class. She has told police that she invited Elatab to her home, earlier this month, and that some parts of their encounter was consensual; however, certain acts were not.
The girl said Elatab has told her that he had been at Jackson's house, and had seen Jackson seduce a girl.
Elatab maintains his innocence, and that the sex was consensual.
One may ask, at this juncture, why an 18 year old man wants to have sex with a 14 year old girl.
Elatab is a potential witness in the Jackson trial because he was a friend of Gavin Arvizo, and said that Gavin told him that Jackson helped him fight the illness.
