Personally, I think he will get charged with all of those but I don't if he Really did them. All the media hype certainly makes me confused.

What does everyone else think? Guilty or Not Guilty?

Amongst all these multiple charges of child molestation against him, new ones just keep coming in, involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.

It's not normal for an adult man to spend nights with young children, boys, socializing with them all the time, buying them things,....Guilty or not, he should really change his behaviour! Sad and lack off childhood is really not the reason for playing with children all your life.

I was wondering what the latest is regarding the Michael Jackson court case? Did he get charged? I've lost touch with the coverage of it.

From http://media.guardian.co.uk/diaryhttp://media.guardian.co.uk/diary>.

Shamone! What a transformation. Eh-hee! Sky News and Sky One have hired Michael Jackson impersonator Edward Moss to play the prince of pop in its reconstructions of his California trial for alleged sexual abuse. Avid Merrion must have been busy bottling his sex wee. But then again, Moss's Jacko impersonation credits do include Nip/Tuck and Scary Movie 3. He says: "This is my biggest challenge to date and I am aware that my portrayal will be followed by millions every day." Millions? Eddie, have you seen the ratings for Sky News and Sky One recently?

I read with dread that Sky news is going to provide saturation coverage of the michael jackson trial - Yet again sky news is going for sensationalism - over the top coverage - News of the world level reporting. Time to find the remote contol again I think -

Do we really need to have this level of coverage?

Well I for one will be taping the reconstructions of what happens in court as when this case blows up and Michael is found Innocent of all these lies it will be intresting to look back at how it all happened.

Also I one can not wait for the truth to come out, so far most thing on the news have been bias against Michael Jackson and all the leaks in the case have been against Michael. While Michael and his legal team have been trying to do there job following the laws, Tom Sneddon and Santa Barbra DA's office has been trying to taint the jury pool. Do these people not think Michael deserves a fair trial?
