FBI Involved in Michael Jackson Molestation Trial

12/22/2009 2:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: In our document search, we just found out why the FBI was involved in the Michael Jackson molestation case. According to one of the docs, the LAPD Sexually Exploited Child Unit contacted the FBI in 1993, asking the agency if it would be "interested in working a possible federal violation against Jackson concerning the transportation of a minor across state lines for immoral purposes."

The FBI was secretly involved in the child molestation case against Michael Jackson, according to documents just released by the agency.

In July, 2004, a memo was drafted stating that the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's investigation produced "collateral investigative issues, some of which potentially rise to the level of Federal Violations, in the New York and Miami Divisions as well as the Los Angeles Division." The memo does not elaborate on the nature of the alleged offenses.

According to the docs, FBI special agents from L.A., New York and Miami were assigned to assist Santa Barbara county prosecutors in their case against Jackson -- a case in which Jackson was found not guilty.

The memo says the special agents and prosecutors spent time discussing various strategies in the case.

There are also documents showing the FBI was involved in the 1993 molestation investigation. In one doc, there are notes which state Jackson was riding in a train with a boy whom Jackson identified as his cousin. The notes say, "He was very possessive of boy," and at night on the train a witness "heard questionable noises through wall."

'Questionable noises through the walls'? Good grief. That could be anything, from giggling to telling ghost stories with scary sound illustrations to beatboxing to snoring.

Why is TMZ writing stories like this, Michael Jackson is dead he has made his peace with the Lord one way or another. This hurtful to his children who have already had to deal with the loss of their Father and all the BS that goes along with that. Do I think he was guilty of the crimes he was accused of, the first one yes the second one no but it sure as hell isn't up to TMZ to continue dig up dirt on him, I understand that this is what TMZ does but it has to end somewhere. This is nothing more than a cheap shot at a corpse who can't come back to defend himself, comon Harvey I'm sure there are other far more interesting stories to report. Happy Holiday's all.

i bet he is a pool of liquid yuk now, after being frozen for so long. after the defrost, things just kinda start turning to a liquid mess and stuff just floating around. here a bone, there a bone, everywhere a bone, bone. i wonder if he got freezer burn? im sure his nose and weave are down where his feet used to be (especially if the casket is on a slant). can you imagine all the drugs he did and add the embalming fluid - holy crap, thats a perfect recipe! it just brewing, waiting to blow the lid off that casket. and the SMELL!.......

Did Michael Jackson pay untold and unseen multi-millions $$ in 1993 and in 2005 to keep from becoming somebody's favorite bitch behind bars?

at the end of the day something was not right with MJ. Even Gene Simmons said that he wasn't going to lie for MJ anymore and he knew MJ wen to Brazil looking for boys.

MJ was perverted and the sooner ppl realize that just because he was a great artist doesnt mean he was a great person. Those things don't always go hand in hand.

There are celebrities who pay to avoid going to trial EVERY DAY & settle out of court. Too many people assume this is an admission of guilt. Had he gone to trial, he would have had to pay untold amounts for a legal defense just like 2005. Not to mention the fact that sources say he was in a fragile mindset & battling a worsening addiction leading up to the trial. Supposedly he asked Cochran if he was sure he would win & Cochran told him there were no guarantees. How many people would want to roll the dice with their freedom. There are innocent people sent to prison every day. Not to mention that settling out of court often incurs far less publicity than a long drawn out trial. Given all these factors, I'd settle out of court too. Anyone who has EVER spent a day in jail, particularly should be able to understand this. I wouldn't take that chance with MY freedom either.
