Wait. What? Michael Jackson's black? I didn't realize that. I thought he was a poor white boy with problems adopted into a black family or something...

Only in America could a poor black boy grow up to be a rich white women.

Interestingly, our polls have MJ at 7-0 Guilty.

10-0 guilty now.

Yeah he has some MAJOR issues this guy. I do think he has some serious mental issues and I can see the trial heading that way.

I think there's a very good chance that he's guilty...but I doubt the jury finds him guilty.

High priced lawyers can do wonders. Plus from what I've read his accuser and his accuser's family aren't exactly the most trustworthy people. I'd be shocked if there's a guilty verdict.

Thanks, Lee....

I was having a hard time picking what I wanted to eat. After that, I've decided what I wanted.......nothing.

Shawn,

Not guilty by reason of insanity has to be an available verdict, which it isn't everywhere. I'm sure California must have it, but...
You have defend for it--You have to plead it. Jackson pleaded Not Guilty.
While I'm not a resident of CA and not intimately knowledgable with California jurisprudence, I'm going to guess that the jury doesn't actually have that available to them as a choice unless it's requested.
And why? Because it's a prison sentence, too. Only in a sanitarium and in therapy, and one from which Jackson stands less chance of getting out of than a real prison.

The funny thing about this is even if a jury finds him guilty, how long's he going to spend in jail? Three years? Four? Nothing near the max, I'm guessing (without knowing what the max in Cali is).
What little I know of the defense in this case, they aren't conducting an insanity defense, because they think they can throw enough of a reasonable doubt by questioning the veracity of the accusers.

Which is a fine defense if you have loopy or unreliable accusers.

Dave

I think he's guilty, big surprise. He's just a deeply disturbed person, I believe, who thinks he is above the law. I don't think he's an EVIL person, just disturbed because of a messed up childhood.

So Dave you're saying that Jackson would have had to plead that right from the start to get it (the insanity verdict)?
I won't even pretend like I know anything about the judicial system.. even saying the word judicial puts me to sleep :lol:

But if that option is available, I think it might mean the difference between a luxury mental hospital for the much-deserving Jacko, or a suite with Bubba... who would probably find Mikey quite 'sweet' indeed...
