Accusers Mother Allowed Kids to Drink, Jackson Not Present MJEOL Bullet #158 Explosive new information in the Michael Jackson case involved the accuser, his family, and alcohol.ABC News is reporting that there are witnesses who saw the accusers mother allowing her children to drink alcohol at Jacksons Neverland Ranch when Jackson was away from the premises.These witnesses are also willing to testify to as much.This speaks to the heart of the allegations leveled against Jackson since prosecutors will actually claim the accuser would be plied with alcohol in order to be molested. Months old comments and information from sources seem to be ringing true now with these kinds of details coming to light. Months ago, various sources would tell different media outlets things like You dont know what shes like. Shes very manipulative, Theres a lot of things about this family thats gonna come out, and other foreshadowing comments. Suspicious minds would say that this isnt even the half of the kind of information yet to be revealed about the familys whereabouts, actions and statements made during the time they claim they were being abducted, plied with wine, molested, threatened and conspired against. The ABC report states:
In addition, these sources told ABC News that there are witnesses who can testify that the alleged victim and his siblings were often seen drinking at Neverland when Jackson was not on the premises. They told ABC News that the alleged victims mother was often present when the children were drinking and did nothing to stop it. (see article)
Defense attorney Dana Cole, who knows Mesereau but is not involved in the Jackson case, says:
If the mother is present that would certainly cause a jury to think (a) Whats the big deal? Or (b) How could we possibly blame Michael Jackson for something that is being done in front of the kids own mother?
This wreaks havoc on prosecutors foundation in which they are trying to claim Jackson got the accuser drunk, essentially, and molested him. It also incites questions about the wine in soda cans allegation. How could the accuser have been given alcohol by the mother and/or in the mothers presence, and there still be the theory that Jackson administered alcohol in soda cans to hide it? Hide it for what? They were already drinking alcohol in front of the mother according to a number of witnesses. Does this destroy the wine in soda cans theory? And if that soda can theory is revealed to be a lie, what else are they lying about? The familys allegation seems completely ridiculous if it was common knowledge and acceptable behavior for the mother to allow her children to drink alcohol out of Jacksons presence. No doubt there would be a number of witnesses (and possibly security camera video) given the number of people who visit Neverland at any given time. Of the alcohol allegations, Fox News legal analyst Bob Massi expressed how this just further taints the accusers familys credibility. He told guest host Laurie Dhue on June 25 2004:
Its not a good week for prosecutors in a lot of cases. But this just again goes to the whole credibility of the case And if she was there, and in fact knowing there was drinking and saw it and observed it, I mean the whole credibility of the case goes out the window. Im sure the prosecutor is not a happy person tonight. (see :camera video)
Defense attorney Mercedes Colwin was also dubious about the allegations against Jackson after hearing this news. She said:
Weve already gotten all these allegations about the mother. I mean certainly we have the issue that the mother, when she found out the child might be molested, first call she made was to a lawyer. Not law enforcement. She called not just a lawyer, [she called] the lawyer that had represented the first child that accused Michael Jackson. These children are pawns for money in her game.
How do prosecution mouthpieces try to explain-away such damaging information? Well, reporters like Celebrity Justices Jane Valez-Mitchell and tabloid reporter Diane Dimond now claim as soon as the mother found out Jackson was allegedly giving the accuser alcohol, she got her children out of there and distanced herself from Jackson. But these reports destroy other allegations made by the family. How in the world could you be held hostage/abducted by Jacksons people AND be free to take your children out of Neverland, distancing yourself from Jackson?? You cant be free to leave AND be held hostage at the same time. So, which story is the truth and which one is the lie? Or are they both lies? Needless to say, Jacksons attorneys by way of cross-examination may have to be the ones to get to the real story. So what of those kidnapping allegations? Another issue addressed in the ABC report was the allegation of a conspiracy and kidnapping leveled against some of Jacksons employees. The backstory is that the accusers family claims they were harassed and intimidated by certain Jackson employees in a conspiracy to silence them. They were allegedly kidnapped/abducted/held hostage at Neverland. Now the story has morphed again to include the allegation that they were held hostage at a Calabasas hotel. Well, it turns out that not only does this story need major work as well, but there may actually be proof that the family was anything but harassed by Jacksons associates. Sources told ABC News that the accusers mother asked Jackson to put her up at a Calabasas hotel while she was looking for a new house. Not only that, she went on a shopping spree at Jacksons expense while there. She was also free to come and go as she pleased, sources say. Of course these things are easily checkable because there are bound to be receipts, security camera video, witnesses, and possibly other video or audio speaking to these facts. Could this be a part of the documentation some of Jacksons associates have from their dealings with the family, as reported by Fox months ago? Could this be why prosecutors are continually getting search warrantsthe total is up to a ridiculous amount, 47, right nowhoping that maybe theyll just .happen upon .. some defense evidence to get a heads-up of what they have? Stay tuned. -MJEOL
