Jason's Mother Testifies

The mother of Jason Francia, the 24 year old who testified that Michael Jackson had fondled him, gave her testimony yesterday.

Mrs Francia used to work as a maid for Jackson at Neverland, between 1986 and 1991.

During her testimony she said that Macaulay Culkin had slept in Jackson's bedroom, during his boyhood friendship with Jackson.

Mrs Francia then went on to say that she saw another boy in the shower with Jackson, and that she had found the clothes of both boys on the floor next to Jackson's bed.

Culkin has repeatedly denied ever being molested by Jackson, and is not expected to testify.

According to Mrs Francia, Culkin was a regular visitor to Neverland over a period of 6 months when he was about 8. On occasions he would arrive without his parents.

She said that the second boy she saw with Jackson had stayed at Neverland for several weeks around 1989, when he was 8 or 9 years old.

She stated that once she went in to clean Jackson's bedroom, and heard laughing and playing.


"I came in and at first I thought they were playing in the bathtub or Jacuzzi and I didn't see them ... and I walked in and they were in the shower."

She claimed that she saw the two of them in the shower, and their underwear on the floor.


"Mr Jackson's, I knew, was white, and the boy's, I knew, was green like a neon colour, was right by the shower."

At this point she claimed that she became concerned about her own son's (Jason's) relationship with Jackson, after finding Jason sitting on Jackson's lap and later seeing them lying together in a sleeping bag on the floor.

Mrs Francia and Jason had accepted a $2M legal settlement from Jackson in the mid-1990s over the allegations.

Why do people take hush money in cases like this?

Why did Jackson pay money to keep them quiet?

These are the two questions that have to be answered, if the jury is to form a clear opinion about the truth of the allegations.
