The singer was on his way to court
in Santa Maria Tuesday when a lingering illness worsened. He was
instead diverted to Marian’s emergency room, and later admitted as a
attending to Jackson told Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville Tuesday
that the defendant may take about four days to recover. Melville then
recessed court until the following week.
This came when during jury selection for his trial in the Santa Maria Superior Court where he is on trial for "four counts of engaging in lewd acts with a 13-year-old boy and four
counts of administering alcohol to help him with the alleged
molestations. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges as well as to
a count of attempted child molestation and a conspiracy charge
involving child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion."
Jackson was released late this last Wednesday to recover from his flu at home. His trial has been postponed until Tuesday when the lengthly jury selection process will continue.
I have my doubts that he will be convicted of child molestation so it will be interesting to see the outcome of this trial.
