[b]Authorities Search [Jackson’s] Ranch Again[/b] Friday, December 03, 2004 Fox News … Jackson’s defense team told FOX News that they believe Friday’s search stemmed from new information from the accuser’s mother, and that they might be looking for DNA. Investigators previously found the DNA of three other people on Jackson’s bed, rather than the accuser’s DNA, and the defense is suggesting it may be tied to this. [b]Defense officials also suggested that the accuser’s mother is now “coming up with new information” after it was revealed this week that she had paranoid schizophrenia, and that this is her payback for that information leaking out to the press.[/b] But prosecution sources told FOX News that in the last week or two, at least one person close to Jackson is now talking to authorities and “providing valuable information.” FOX News has learned that in this same time period, authorities reached out to several people, including possible unindicted co-conspirators in the case, offering them deals if they cooperate. Additionally, prosecution sources told FOX News that there were some discussions with the Jackson team in recent weeks about Jackson receiving probation, registering as a sex offender, being monitored with his own children and staying away from others in exchange for no jail time. The sources said Jackson’s team was not receptive to this. One key member of Jackson’s defense team told FOX News: “If a paranoid schizophrenic accused you of this, would you accept any deal?” Source: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,140443,00.html
