Jacko’s ’93 Accuser May Be Called Before Grand Jury

The prosecutor in the Michael Jackson child molestation case may call witnesses from the ’93 case, which ended in a large settlement being paid to the accuser, but no charges against Jackson:

    The Santa Barbara News-Press, citing sources it did not name, said several witnesses who testified in the 1993 child-molestation investigation are expected to testify again. The newspaper earlier reported that potential grand jurors had received summonses to appear later this month.

    ….The newspaper said Sneddon is considering calling the accuser to the stand, and could also call former employees of Jackson’s Neverland Ranch who testified before.

    ….Use of the grand jury to secure an indictment would sidestep a potentially lengthy preliminary hearing with public testimony. [AP]

Although the story referenced above is not available online to nonsubscribers (yet), the Santa Barbara News-Press does have a comprehensive special section on the Jackson case, which they have followed religiously since it broke last November. Their story from the 17th confirms that Jackson has been called to appear before a grand jury.
