The Michael Jackson defense is taking up an obvious angle, and maybe it’ll work. This week, they brought in Macaulay Culkin, who managed to find time between films to testify. Culkin said he was never molested at Neverland. The defense called Culkin to refute a claim that Jackson acted improper with him, but what’s relevant to the specific allegation that got Jackson arrested?
Probably nothing, but it may be good enough to distract the jury. Culkin isn’t alone, either. As a matter of fact, the first two witnesses for the defense said Jackson didn’t touch them.
If this defense works, look for Scott Peterson to ask for new trial so he can present witnesses who he met but never killed.
