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."

I cannot believe that you wanted to bring back a case in which Michael Jackson finally has been considered INNOCENT AFTER THE JURY HAD BEEN REUNITED FOR 30 HOURS. I don't understand what you are trying to show. That’s enough with the offenses to his dignity!

Oh for Pete's sake. Let it go. This is history now.

The man is dead and has children that have been left behind, grief stricken and heartsick.

Not to diminish their efforts, however, a little bit of overkill I would say, bringing in the FBI - and what good did it do? Nada. Nothing. They probably had to write up tomes of reports in order to warrant their existence and mountains of money that was likely expended.

Let's hope the same effort is being made in finding out the truth of Michael Jackson's death. "Oops, I made a mistake" is just not cutting it.

Rest in Peace Michael - what you had to deal with in life is blatantly clear now; we were blessed to have you as long as we did.

Michael Jackson was murdered, and I hope the FBI after torturing him for years will at least help bring those
involved in the murder of Michael Jackson to justice.

Somehow, with all the private planes at MJ's disposal, I can't see him riding on a train. Don't believe the BS. But, see, that's what happens when you open the FBI files..All the crazy stories come out of the woodwork.

Gee, way to defame a dead man who can no longer even defend himself. Michael was tried (by an all-white jury no less) and found not guilty of these charges. The trial and all the stress from it is what really killed him. Let him rest in peace for goodness sake. If he did it, he is paying for it now, and if he didn't, we who condemn him constantly are the real guilty ones.

No wonder Michael left the country. "They dont really care about us". And I'm sure that anyone who defends Michael, well I guess the FBI has a file on us too. Oh well, you can check whatever you want. This totally sucks. Poor Michael went through it.

TMZ stop being a hater!!!

If your going to bring up this old crap then why not talk about how they got all 16 of Michael's computers and found nothing on them? Michael was such an extreme guy that if he was into children then they would have found that, instead they just found Heterosexual porn only. Get over yourself. Your only fooling a few fools out there.

Michael was 100% innocent of those allegations and those idiots were just extorting him like so many others tried to do!

God bless you Michael and your children who have to read all this crap. If your not going to say anything good about Michael then leave him alone TMZ!

Wow. No wonder Michael decided to disappear. Can anyone really take all the lies and continue to be lambasted by everyone without having some sort of effect on your mental well being.
MJ truly has the last laugh here.
