Michael Jackson's Trials

Michael Jackson's Trials


The Ongoing Trials of The Late Michael Jackson

Au Contraire

The witnesses who testified yesterday in the Michael Jackson trial, contradicted the testimony of earlier witnesses.

They stated that they never saw Jackson act improperly with children at Neverland.

Joe Marcus, the ranch manager, and four other witnesses gave their testimony at the behest of the defence team.

Marcus said that Gavin Arvizo and his family never complained of mistreatment, and were free to leave at any time. Janet Arvizo "seemed to be just enjoying herself," he said.

He noted that Gavin and his brother were "destructive", but were "having fun".

Violet Silva, head of Neverland security in 2003, said that she never saw anything "illegal or inappropriate", nor did she have "no personal knowledge" of kids drinking alcohol at the ranch; that last form of words is well crafted.

Silva said that Gavin and his younger brother found the ignition keys in Jackson's Lincoln Navigator and a ranch van, and took them for joyrides on ranch roads. This was one reason for them not being allowed off the property, she said.

Francine Contreras, a former housemaid, said that the prosecution witness Adrian McManus stole clothes, watches and toys from Jackson.

She herself had been fired, not for stealing but for trespassing.
