NOVEMBER 19, 2003. The PRESS
CONFERENCE of County District Sheriff Tom Sneddon and County
Sheriff Jim Anderson.
Short information about the press-conference first: Santa Barbara
County Sheriff Jim Anderson says there that an arrest
warrant for Mr. Jackson has been issued on multiple counts of
child molestation. The previous day approximately 70 investigators
raided Neverland ranch from 8:30 in the morning to 11:00 p.m.
The bail amount on the warrant has been set at $3million dollars.
Mr. Jackson is given an opportunity to surrender himself to
the custody of the Santa Barbara Sheriffs department within
a specified period of time.
Santa Barbara County District Attorney Thomas Sneddon
compares the present case with the 1993 one and says there is
a big difference between the two: Number one, it is different
because the law in California has changed, and it was changed
specifically because of the 1993-94 Michael Jackson investigation.
The law in California at that time provided that a child victim
could not be forced to testify in a child molest proceeding
without their permission and consent and cooperation. As a result
of the Michael Jackson case, the legislature changed that law,
and that is no longer the law in California.
Secondly, as you all know, or most of you know, either
from being involved, or knowing about that investigation, there
were never any charges brought in that investigation. No
warrant issued (I am quoting it just in case someone
forgot that Michael was never charged in 1993).
So Michael Jackson was arrested on November
20, 2003 but there were still no charges brought
against him. Despite the arrest the L.A. Department of Children
and Family Services made an official conclusion on November
26, 2003, that the accusations made by the Arvizo family
were unfounded. The official memo
issued by DCFS was based on their 2-week long probe conducted
jointly by the DCFS and the police in February the same year
and quoted the mother saying that Michael was like a father
to the children, that none of them ever shared a
bed with him (he always slept on the floor) and the sister
had never seen anything inappropriate between the
brothers and the entertainer.
The Smoking Gun says: The joint probe by DCFS
and the Los Angeles Police Department ran from February 14-27
and, the memo states, the investigation by the Sensitive
Case Unit concluded the allegations of neglect and sexual abuse
to be unfounded both by the LAPD-Wilshire Division and the Department.
When an investigation is closed, child welfare officials
can summarize their findings in one of three ways. If evidence
is found to support abuse charges, the case is marked substantiated.
A case is termed not substantiated when evidence
discovered is not sufficient to support allegations (though
the charges may, in fact, be true). Finally, a matter is branded
unfounded when officials determine there
is no merit to the allegations.
The full story about the Department of Children & Family
Tom Sneddon confirms at the November 19, 2003 conference that
there are still no charges: There is a warrant outstanding
and I can assure you that within a very short period of time,
there will be charges filed against Mr. Jackson. Multiple
counts. Thats different (from the 1993 case).
The press conference is magnificent in many ways: it has been
put off for several weeks to fit the time of the release of
Michaels new album because of all the visitors who
had come up here for the Halloween, Tom Sneddon is in
a great mood, making jokes about Michael, and finally says there
could be other possible victims. Sheriff Jim Andersons invites
all the people to participate:
we would encourage
the public to come forward if they have any information whatsoever
that would lead us to believe there are other victims in the
to contact us so that we can follow up on
Now that the victims are encouraged to come in
and the public is invited to take part in the witch hunt, lets
see if anyone has heard the trumpet call.
EPISODE # 2.
On November 25, 2003 LARRY KING
interviews Velez-Mitchell who says that Michael Jackson
has already been booked, fingerprinted, arrested and released
on bail and Nancy Grace of Court TV who says I
found it peculiar when I first heard of it, but after we learned
that the sheriff had issued a public statement asking any potential
victims to come forward, its my understanding there are
report they have received many, may dozens of phone calls.
Are they legitimate, dont know. But I think the district
attorney and the sheriff have to filter through them and determine
if there are any other charges that should be coupled with this
So Tom Sneddon is desperately in need of self-declared victims
to support his flimsy Arvizo case and is waiting for the public
to help the prosecution
Here we go with the first one. Among those dozens
of callers mentioned by Nancy Grace there was surely a certain
Terry George, a British businessman, who owns a telephone
Our correspondent Suzy says about him: I remember Terry
George, selling a story to the British Tabloids. He claimed
Michael forced him to phone sex when he was 13 and
Michael was 19. How do you force somebody to phone sex?
Anyway, the guy was an obsessed fan, IMO. There are photos of
the two posing like MJ would pose with any fan. On that the
guy looks about 17-18 and Michael is about 23-24.
Terry told the tabloids that after this MJ rejected him and
he was trying to get to him in hotels or wherever he was but
he just cut him off. Now, the twist is that Terry is gay man
and IMO this is exactly the reason why Michael cut him off!
Not that he had a problem with gay people, but I think this
guy was trying to make moves on him and Michael was disturbed
by it, because he was not gay.
Funny, how Mr Terry George only remembered this
molestation story and sold it to tabloids after
the Chandler case broke. Another twist to the story is that
he owns a phone sex company
.. And funny how
despite of being molested by Michael as a boy he
was running after him all around the world trying to get to
his hotels when he was 17-18. Of course, tabloids pay cash for
stories like this.
Following Suzy I decided to look up Terry George and found his
website where he claims he was summoned to the 2005 trial as
a witness for the prosecution. However even the link itself
disproves his own story as it adds WRONG at the very end of
Terry George, 40, will appear at Jackson's trial; (WRONG!)
Well, it seems that Tom Sneddon wasnt terribly happy with
this witness - the joyous guy practically imposed himself as
a molestation victim on the prosecution side but the chief prosecutor
was still not impressed or interested
By the way
this Terry George was the one mentioned in the FBI files (there
was nothing but a newspaper cut about him there and no further
action was taken by the FBI ). Judging by Terrys later
professional interests I wonder which of the two young men wanted
to rape the other over the telephone back in the 70s
wonder Michael avoided him like plague after that
In mid-April 2004 the allegations were made by Daniel
Kapon. It was the very midst of the investigation, so the
timing of this law-suit against Michael Jackson is telling
half the story (the press reported the case in June 2004). This
is what our correspondent DAVID says about the guy: On
June 1st, 2004, Daniel Kapon sold a videotaped story of where
he said he was molested by MJ from ages 3 to 9 years
old to British Tabloid News Of The World for $500k.
In addition to molestation, he also accused Jackson of forcing
him to take drugs and drink alcohol, as well as
making him undergo cosmetic surgery, and falsely
And, (worst of all!) Kapon goes on to allege Jackson plagiarized
him, stealing song ideas from him for 10 years from 1987 to
1997. At age 9, he all of a sudden forgot about
his 6 years of molestations and plastic surgeries, only to have
the repressed memories recovered under the treatment
of notorious MJ hater Carole LIE-berman. Kapon also hired
you guessed it! Gloria Allred to represent him in a CIVIL
TRIAL! Lieberman reported it to the cops, as shes required
to do by law, and of course they completely dismissed this baseless
But whats really disturbing about this is the fact that
his false claims were ENABLED and ENCOURAGED by Carole Lieberman
and Gloria Allred! These two money hungry, attention loving
quacks would have immediately dismissed such baseless claims
if they were thrown at anyone else other than MJ.
Interesting. Lets have a closer look at this guy:
Kapon Sold Half-Hour Taped Account Of Abuse To U.K. Tabloid
By Jennifer Vineyard
Michael Jackson and his camp are dismissing as malicious
and false claims by an 18-year-old man who has sold
his story of abuse to a British tabloid.
News of the World purchased Daniel Kapons half-hour
videotape, on which he alleges Jackson had drugged, molested
and videotaped him during trips to the Jackson family home in
Encino, California, as well as at Neverland Ranch. Kapon claims
the abuse started when he was 3 and continued for six years.
A Jackson spokesperson said the tape was being offered for nearly
a half a million dollars when it first surfaced a month and
a half ago.
This appears to be a malicious attempt to undermine Mr.
Jacksons right to a fair hearing on the charges presently
pending, Jacksons lawyers said in a statement. We
have to question the timing and purpose of this false allegation
being raised at this time. We believe that this smear
campaign is driven by money-hungry lawyers seeking to capitalize
on Mr. Jacksons current legal situation.
Kapon claims his allegations were prompted by a repressed memory
that was recovered while under a psychiatrists care. That
psychiatrist is said to be Dr. Carole Lieberman, and
Kapons lawyer is said to be Gloria Allred. Lieberman
and Allred previously filed complaints against Jackson with
the Department of Children and Family Services following his
infamous baby-dangling incident (see Michael
Jackson Tells Attorney To Go To Hell ).
Lieberman declined to comment, and Allred was unavailable for
Another source, THE THAINDIAN NEWS portal
reported in January 2008 a different version of the molestation
period (now extended from 6 years to 12 years) as Kapon claimed
that Jackson started molesting him when he was 2 years
old and sexually assaulted him up to the age of 14?. Jackson
forced him into drugs and alcohol and subjected him to
unnecessary cosmetic surgery, burned, tortured and beating.
Kapon also accused the 49-year-old singer of stealing his song
ideas, says the news portal.
In his deposition, he said that Jackson had him ejaculate
into a jar and later used his semen to impregnate ex-wife Debbie
He was obsessed with geniuses and blood lines and he told
me that he wanted to continue my blood line, which he believed
to be related to the Rothschilds, said Kapon.
Well, if you think that the crazy allegations were dismissed
the next day they were made sometime in 2004 you are completely
wrong about it. The court needed ANOTHER FOUR YEARS to sort
through all this madness and take it to a trial stage. The lawsuit
was dismissed only in 2008 and only after the applicant
failed to show up for the commencement of the trial.
Here is what the Thaindian News says about it:
LAWSUIT AGAINST MICHAEL JACKSON DISMISSED
January 15th, 2008
Washington, Jan 15 (ANI): A lawsuit filed against pop star Michael
Jackson by a 22-year-old man has been dismissed after the applicant
failed to show up for the commencement of the trial. Daniel
Kapon had filed a lawsuit against the pop star, stating that
Jackson had molested and sexually assaulted him for 12 years.
The case however was dismissed after he failed to show up.
I think the judge realized how crazy the lawsuit was,
E!News quoted Jacksons attorney Thomas C. Mundell, as saying.
In the original lawsuit filed in January 2006 in Orange County,
and then refiled in Los Angeles in March, Kapon accused Jackson
of a litany of sins, including child molestation, assault, battery,
false imprisonment, plagiarism and fraud.
However, Jacksons lawyer claimed, These are not good-faith
deposition answers. They are the ravings of an unbalanced celebrity
(For another source of information on the same episode please
THE USA TODAY (AP) http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2006-04-18-jackson-follow-up_x.htm?csp=34
reported n April 18, 2006 that in a December 2005 motion
asking for dismissal Jacksons lawyers spoke
about a certain Bartucci.
Who is Bartucci and what do Jacksons lawyers have to do
with him? Why did they ask in December 2005 for his dismissal?
Evidently because Tom Sneddon wanted him to testify (the
timing perfectly fits in with the trial) and Jacksons
lawyers did not agree to his presence?
Bartucci is the mysterious 1984 victim to
whom Michaels haters often refer as an early case
of molestation. This guy claimed that he had been kidnapped
by the pop star and molested for nine days in 1984 in New
Orleans. The awful details include being forced into a white
limousine, held at gunpoint there and cut with steel wire and
a razor blade.
Nothing but sheer horror, I would say however a minor
obstacle to the case is that ALL THIS TIME Michael Jackson
was in California which was a fact proved by his lawyers.
Well, firstly he was rehearsing for his Victory tour with every
hour being well documented by various appointments and
secondly, he couldnt leave California because he was receiving
an award from President Reagan at the time.
Despite this controversy the accuser claimed emotional and physical
trauma which he recalled only when he saw a Court TV show about
child molestation charges brought against Jackson in 2003. His
lawsuit was filed in 2004 (naturally sometime around
the 2005 trial), but the judge agreed with Jacksons lawyers
that Bartucci was a professional litigator. The
lawyers proved that Bartucci had been involved in 18 civil and
criminal suits over the previous 17 years and included four
damage suits filed by Bartucci, with at least one of them raising
allegations of sexual abuse against a minister.
As a result of the worldwide search for additional victims Tom
Sneddon finally came up with a package of FIVE of them which
the Smoking gun ironically calls the Jackson 5?.
However the victims werent as closely knit
as the Jackson 5 out of the five of them three turned
out to be witnesses for the DEFENSE Macauley Culkin,
Wade Robson and Brett Barnes who vehemently denied any abuse.
Only one and a half turned out to be witnesses for the PROSECUTION
Jordan Chandler was the half as he
never agreed to testify and his mother June Chandler took the
stand instead. Jordan had been approached by the police but
flatly refused to testify saying he had done his part
and would sue them if they insisted on his going
to court. The other victim was Jason Francia who said
he remembered being tickled on 3 occasions and who managed to
recall the events only after the prosecution had repeatedly
talked to him
Now that weve searched the whole world and scraped
all those victims together, the question is - WERE
THEY WORTH THE 15 YEARS OF MICHAELS BRUTAL HARASSMENT?
Thank you Helena for your generosity
sharing your investigation!
