Michael Jackson

Molestation Talk

Banned from Manslaughter Trial

8/29/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_michael_jackson_BN
A judge has ruled that witnesses will NOT be allowed to discuss Michael Jackson's child molestation case during Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said any testimony relating to the molestation case is irrelevant -- and would be distracting and misleading to the jury.

The judge also banned Arnie Klein from testifying -- after prosecutors argued the defense would try to blame the dermatologist for the death ... and take away attention from the man on the hot seat -- Dr. Murray.

Aw, TMZ leaving stuff out again. Go figure.

Can you say why they are not making Klein and Pfeiffer testify in the defense behalf?? Ok i will say it for you.
Because the defense was going to try and use the demerol excuse and the judge said it is irrevelant because none was found in MJ's system at the time of death.

Good gosh, either give the whole story or none at all. And I even left some more of it out. LOL

I don't know why they were even bring up that past trial. It has NOTHING to do with Murray at all. Trying to stall if you ask me. Let's get back on track to the real reason we are having this trial in the first place...and his name is Conrad Murray. Let the evidence be presented...and let's move on with the verdict. That's all one can do.

And as far Arnie...trying to use him to distract the real reason...yes...that is true. Although, I do believe he is just as responsible for the events as well. (Giving MJ demerol over and over...makes a person a addict).

Let's get this trial started, and get it over with so MJ's family and Fans can have some closure. Happy Birthday Michael...we do love you and miss you.

What are they going to ban next? The doctor's defense of himself? The only statement you're allwoed to make is, I'm guilty. Truth of the matter s MJ was a raging drug addict trying to squelch the voices of the children he molested with massive quanities of drugs. Murray was not the only bad do tha ctor feeding him the drugs he craved. If one has to pay, the rest of them should. Besides, Michael is probably smiling as he looks up from hell since the two-faced world that shunned him the last several years of his life has absolved and sainted him in death.


If you're a delusional nut bag hit dislike now.

Nice lipstick/eyeliner Mike, between his wanting to look like a woman and Chastity Bono wanting to be a man...these are some confused people who at the end of the day look like FREAKS.

I agree with this decision. The drugs found in MJ's body were ALL prescribed by Conrad Murray. Whatever Arnold Klein may have given MJ, it wasn't what killed him. The molestation charges are also irrelevant. The trial should be focused on Murray's actions and whether they amount to manslaughter or not.
