Juror's Integrity In Tatters

Ray Hultman, one of the jurors from the Michael Jackson trial, has been accused of plagiarism.

Hultman and the two co-writers of his book about the trial, called "The Deliberator", have allegedly taken a description of Jackson's clothes worn during the trial word for word from Vanity Fair.

The alleged stolen quote was:

"Up close, Michael Jackson's appearance is amazing. He wears a black pageboy wig, and his face is caked with white makeup, which conceals a prosthesis that serves as the tip of his nose. One person, who has seen him without the device, says he resembles a mummy with nostril holes."

These were first written by Maureen Orth in an article in April 2003 for Vanity Fair.

If true, then it further destroys what is left of Hultman's already dubious integrity.
