Defense Tells Judge about Flawed AG Investigation– Bullet #183

Defense Tells Judge about Flawed AG Investigation – MJEOL Bullet #183 Attorneys for Michael Jackson blasted the investigation done by the Attorney General(AG) of California, Bill Lockyer as “flawed from the outset” In court documents released late yesterday (August 19), the defense says that prosecutors knew full well that Jackson wasn’t permitted to speak to representatives of the AG’s office regarding this matter.

They also say correctly that Jackson never made a formal complaint against the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department (SBSD). Much of the information is blacked out in the motion, but enough is there to confirm that the AG’s investigation really was completely one-sided.

From the defense’s Objection to Notice of Motion and Motion of Jim Anderson:

The prosecution knows that Mr. Jackson was not permitted to speak to representatives of the Attorney General’s office regarding this matter due to the on-going criminal case. Mr. Jackson’s counsel would not permit such an interview. As such, this purported investigation was flawed from the outset.
