Jackson The Target

Michael Jackson's former attorney, Mark Geragos, testified last week in the trial.

He stated that Jackson had told him that Gavin Arvizo had slept in his bed, but that nothing sexual had happened.

Geragos testified that he investigated the Arvizos, and became very concerned about them.

He said that he had asked Jackson if Gavin had slept in his bed.


"Yes. He said nothing happened...He said he didn't do anything untoward or sexual and if anyone spent the night in his room, it was unconditional love."

Geragos gave a very strong message of support for Jackson:

"When I was there, what I saw was a gentleman who was almost childlike in his love for kids. I didn't see anyone doing anything nefarious or criminal. I saw someone who was ripe as a target,".

Geragos said he was concerned about allegations arising from the Bashir documentary, and was particularly concerned that Gavin and his family might take advantage of them.

He said that he did database searches to see if the family had a "litigious history", and was very worried to find they had previously sued J.C. Penney over allegations that they were beaten by security guards.

The family received a $150K settlement in that lawsuit.

Geragos said that he hired a private investigator, Bradley Miller, to investigate the family; the results led him to believe the Arvizo family was bad news.


"Michael should have nothing to do with them...It was a pending disaster."
