Jury Selection Starts In Jackson Molestation Case 31.Jan.2005

Jackson Molestation Case After more than an hour's wait, Jackson and his attorney stood and faced the first group of prospective jurors filing into the courtroom in his child-molestation trial today. Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville summoned 300 people today as jury selection begins for Michael Jackson's child molestation case.

Another 300 are set to appear Tuesday, and a final 150 on Wednesday. From that pool the judge hopes to find 12 jurors and 12 alternates. Jackson, 46, is charged with molesting a cancer patient then age 13, now 15 after plying him with alcohol.

Jackson on Sunday released a videotaped statement saying that leaks to the media about grand jury testimony in the case contained information that was "disgusting and false" and predicted victory at trial.
