It seems that Janet Jackson (nee Arvizo) may not testify, after all, at Michael Jackson's trial.
It is reported that Janet sees potential legal problems if she testifies.
The prosecution have filed a motion that the defence be disbarred from asking Janet any questions about welfare fraud.
This trial could certainly not have dredged up a more unpleasant and odious bunch of people if it had tried. The stench of greed and lies is positively nauseating.
Tom Sneddon has told jurors that Janet Jackson (nee Arvizo) "obtained welfare funds when she wasn't entitled to them. She's going to tell you that, and she's going to admit that."
In other words, she is a thief and liar.
Janet, fearing no doubt that the welfare services might jump on her from a great height, is thinking of pleading the Fifth Amendment. Needless to say, this would fatally hole her testimony below the water line.
Whilst she is not relevant to the case about molestation, she is relevant to the conspiracy charges against five unindicted Jackson associates.
Whoever eventually wins this sorry and sordid little example of the failings of humanity, it will not be the human race.
