[b]Father of Michael Jackson accuser asks to see boy[/b] WEDNESDAY, 28 JANUARY 2004 LOS ANGELES: The father of the boy at the centre of the Michael Jackson child molestation case sought joint custody of his son yesterday, citing in part the charges against the pop star. The man, who lost custody of his son and other children after pleading no contest to child cruelty and spousal abuse, also seeks to lift a restraining order that bars him from having contact with his family, his lawyer said. “What we’re asking for is joint custody,” attorney Russell Halpern said. “We’re saying the father is not a danger to his children. He’s attended parenting classes and anger management classes.” Halpern said the man, whose name has not been made public because it would identify his son, considers a change in the custody arrangements an “emergency situation” in light of the charges against Jackson. “He has received information from the news media that his son has been the subject of child molestation accusations and has suffered a relapse of his cancer,” Halpern said. “He wants to offer comfort to the child and find out what is really going on with the allegations.” :nav [url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=13558]Read FULL Article…[/url] :nav [url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?showtopic=13558]Your Comments?[/url]
