Geragos: Jackson not a ‘freak’

Posted by

Mark Geragos told ABCNEWS’ Good Morning America he does not consider Michael Jackson a “freak” and he is not concerned about how the pop star’s image might affect the criminal case against him. “I have sat and talked with him,” Geragos told ABCNEWS senior legal correspondent Cynthia McFadden in an exclusive interview scheduled to air Monday on Good Morning America. “He’s not a freak in any sense of the word. All I can tell you is that a day does not go by that I do not get inundated at my office with e-mails, letters of support, from people who think he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.”… Geragos gave the interview before a judge placed a gag order on prosecutors and defense attorneys at Jackson’s arraignment hearing on Friday… Geragos told McFadden he does not see anything wrong with parents letting their children spend the night at other people’s houses. He has allowed it with his own children. “My children spend the night at other 45-year-old men’s houses — a single male who’s roughly my age, who’s got a son, and my son spends the night at his house,” Geragos said… “This idea that somehow he’s luring kids into sleep into his bedroom and some kind of seductive dance — if it wasn’t so absolutely defamatory, it would be laughable,” Geragos said… [b]”They’re not invited to spend the night in his bedroom,” Geragos said. “He has a specific area where guests stay. … The reason this kind of [thing] comes up is that [u]people assume that he comes up there and spends the night[/u] in the bedroom. He’s never said that to anybody.”[/b]… :nav [url=]Read FULL Story[/url]
