Jackson witnesses ‘were bullied’

Poor Wacko Jacko!


Mr Jackson has pleaded not guilty to 10 child molestation charges

Michael Jackson’s lawyers have asked for his grand jury indictment on child molestation charges to be thrown out, saying prosecutors bullied witnesses.

The secret grand jury hearings in Santa Maria, California, represented an “abuse of power” by prosecutors, the singer’s lawyer Robert Sanger said.

The motion for dismissal, to be studied at a future hearing, called prosecutors “hostile” and “very uncooperative”.

Mr Jackson, 45, has pleaded not guilty to 10 child molestation charges.


The motion was released on Wednesday after being edited by Santa Barbara County Judge Rodney Melville to remove names of witnesses, and references to the specifics of the indictment.

The defence lawyer said prosecutors who conducted the secret grand jury hearings “ran the proceedings as if they employed the grand jurors”.
