    Guilty but on which counts, serving alcohol to minors and molestation is my guess. Funny how he didnt like the girls,,,,,,,,,,,to much time in Kalifornia i guess.

    Bubbles the Chimp may soon have more freedom than Michael Jackson, should be an interesting hour. :p

    Edit: he's still at home, what are the chances he is calling Al Cowlings to give him a ride in his white Bronco?

    He really should do time on one or other counts, but if OJ could get away with it then anything could happen in the next half-hour....

    Incidentally, kudos to a man who quotes Subdivisions in his sig... :D

    For whatever reason, CNN is reporting that the verdict will be read at 1:45 p.m., not 1:30 p.m. Not sure which one is correct...

    this one can go either way, i don't think he's going to make it on time, but i think the judge will postpone the verdict

    My guess is that CNN will want some delay for editing.

    Left late...

    Still 10 minutes away along with the 5 minutes to walk through security and settle down in the courtroom.

    I haven't been paying nearly as much attention to this trial as I did to the OJ trial - but I just hope MJ isn't convicted simply because he's some wacked-out freak, but because he actually did something. From what I can tell, it's been a lot of circumstantial evidence from questionable sources.

    Maybe I should have watched E!'s re-enactments...

    Michael had to change into his formal, courtroom pajamas.

    The delay was the Jackson family getting Tito into makeup to serve Michael's sentence.

    lol lol

    he's going to kill himself if found guilty... maybe even if acquitted... MJ is no more, no matter what happens here. out of money, out of friends, out of power.

    We can put a man on the moon, but we dont have the technology to make anyone look like Michael. Or enough makeup. :p

    Even if Jacko isn't a molester he still isn't normal and should not be allowed to roam free.

    Not being "normal" shouldn't be a criteria for incarceration. If he didn't do anything illegal, he should be free to go.

    Agreed. We don't need the guilty going free.

    Or do you mean that if he's freed, he'll promise to spend his life tracking down the real molester of those children?

    But he already admitted giving alcohol to a minor, that could carry a sentence in it's own right.

    He's finished either way, guilty or not, we've seen the last of Micheal Jackson.

    It's a tragic tale, he's such a talented.... freak.

    I'm not a fan, I prefer Alien Ant Farm's Smooth Criminal, I just think that Bashir's documentary put the tin hat on it.

    Until this trial started, I thought we'd already seen the last of Michael Jackson.

    I didn't realize he'd admitted to providing alcohol to minors - doesn't cast a great light on the rest of the case, I suppose.

    OK, I've just been backtracking on the beeb, he's not admitted it, but it was added to the list of charges after testimony and some pressure from the prosecution. Legal thinking is he probably won't get sent down on that charge alone, even if found guilty.

    It's the conspiracy charge that could really hurt him.

    Millionaires almost never ever do the time. We know Michael has had a habit................Lawyers bite. Michael is now broke but free. Was justice served? Our sytem is about the Rich not justice. If this was a regular dude he would be in for years. Our whole sytem of government has turned into a Clustermess due to Lawyers and $$$

    BBC is reporting "Not guilty".

    He doesn't belong in a jail, he belongs in psychiatric care.
