Prosecution Evidence Not Incriminating as Claimed MJEOL Bullet #253 MARCH 16 2005 — At the risk of once again using an overly used phrase, there were more bombshells in court, this time cited by Michael Jacksons defense attorney Robert Sanger through his cross-examination of police detective Steve Robel. Robel testified yesterday as to items seized from Jacksons Neverland Ranch. He had claimed that they took adult material from a box at the foot of Jacksons bed. Today (March 16 2005), the defense revealed more devastating information to the prosecutions case. The fingerprint that so many pro-prosecution pundits like to point to as proof of guilt may have gotten put on that magazine in front of the grand jury and not during the time the accuser claims he was shown it by Jackson. According to a report from MSNBCs Jennifer London, the defense brought out in court that the magazine with the accusers fingerprint on it wasnt tested for fingerprints until summer 2004, AFTER the grand jury had already handed down an indictment. From Londons report:
JENNIFER LONDON: However, under cross-examination today, one of the detectives revealed that fingerprints of the accuser were not lifted from one of the magazines until after the grand jury proceedings. The significance: the defense claims the accusers fingerprints got on that magazine because he touched it during the grand jury testimony. (see vid)
There was also more information about this adult material. Some of the magazines prosecutors entered into evidence wasnt dated until 4 months AFTER the alleged molestation was supposed to have occurred. That would make the publication date anywhere from June 2003 to July 2003. As you know, this was long after the accusing family had left Neverland for good. More from Londons report:
LONDON: One of the investigators did say that on a couple of the magazines, the publication dates were at least 4 months after the prosecution says the alleged molestation occurred.
