Judge Rodney Melville has ruled against showing jurors in the Michael Jackson trial a photo of Michael Jackson's penis.
"I'm going to deny the request to bring in the evidence of the blemished penis,".
The photos come from a search warrant in 1993, when Jackson faced accusations of molestation from Jordie Chandler.
The blemish was not described in open court Thursday, but Chandler gave investigators details in 1993 about his intimate knowledge of the "splotches" on Jackson's butt and a lighter one on his penis. He also drew pictures.
Prosecutor Ron Zonen is quoted as saying:
"The fact that [Chandler] was able to give a description of a unique feature of his anatomy that could not have been known by him except for a very intimate acquaintance with Mr. Jackson is very good circumstantial evidence of the fact that the relationship between he and at least that child was something more than casual and something more than innocent,".
Notwithstanding that, Judge Melville has ruled that Chandler's drawings of Jackson's penis, the photographs were more prejudicial than probative.
Again the question has to be raised, what on earth were the parents of both boys thinking of in allowing their children to be so close to a 30/40 year old man?
