The defence case in Michael Jackson's child molestation trial could be ending sooner than anyone expected, that is according to Jackson's defence team.
Jackson's spokeswoman, Raymone Bail, had originally said that they expected the defence phase of the trial would take about six weeks.
However, Tom Mesereau has reportedly told Judge Rodney Melville that this was an "overstatement".
"I think a number of weeks is an overstatement of the amount of time we'll need here."
Jackson's team though are denying speculation that the defence will rest next week.
Given the total "balls up" that the prosecution have made in this case, re the remarkably dishonest set of witnesses that they produced, one can understand the defence not wishing/needing to make this a protracted spectacle.
