Michael Jackson

Molestation Talk

Banned from Manslaughter Trial

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

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.

The guy was a junkie, not a pretty word. Junkies don't live in a world of their own, they have tons of people who supply them, look the other way.
When is the last time we read where someone had the nerve to walk away from this junkie because they were afraid he would wind up dead? Tons of people are the freak who have blood on their hands, why boil it down to one?

You're right about the estate. People, either because of ignorance, laziness, are willing to go along with the lies put out there, or because they like trashing Michael's family, bash them and make incorrect statements about money and who's getting it. The executors control the money. Ask yourselves -- have the executors done right by Michael's children or his mother, who ARE named in the current will? Have the executors put together a tribute for the man whose money, image, trademarks, likeness, name, music, art, etc they "manage?" Do you think they are working for free? How much do you think they are earning? If it is more than those who Michael left in his will, then it is TOO MUCH! How much money have the executors given to charity? As much as Michael?

Damn and I told Doc that the "it's all about sex" defense was a real winner too. Now he's going to have to fall back on the tried and true "its a vast right wing coinspiracy" scam. Worked for me so why not for Doc Murray?

Doesn't the judge convict Murry by not allowing Klien? that hampers the defensees ability to bring up other senerios to give reasonable doubt. MJ was a drug addict like Elvis, and elvis was a pedophile. How many underage girls did he have sex with? I know a woman who Elvis had sex with when she was 13 years old. No matter how talented, sexual perversions should not be excused, using your celebrity to suduce an underage person is wrong and should be punished.

It's that rapper lifestyle thing    

This guy was a TWISTED, TORTURED soul who whether guilty or not of child molestation (never slept with little girls that I know of) is better off at the end of June, 2009 than he EVER was in life.

Some of you people are ridiculous. This trial is NOT about whether MJ or Elvis was a pedophile. It is about Conrad Murry and his neglect which cause the death of another human being.

Why can't you get this thru your thick skulls.

I wonder what possible basis Murray's lawyers even came up with to justify bringing in people from the molestation case. Glad the judge didn't go along with that nonsense.

I agree. MJ was trashed 15 years ago and acquitted. This trial is about who killed him; the doctor or suicide. MJ had his hand on the throttle so to speak. He insisted on the death machine which wound up killing him.
