From inside the courtroom:

Rebee, LaToya, and Janet all stood up in the front row and left the courtroom in unison as the DA began his rebuttal.

They'll either find him guilty or not guilty, or there may be a hung jury.

So that's what they think this is? A political event?

How out of touch is that whole family?

My prediction based on the little knowledge I have; I believe the jury *may* convict on the alcohol to a minor charge but not others. However I think both sides screwed up, but they also scored needed points. If a juror wants to find reasonable doubt; I think he/she can justify it based on the case; but I also think a conviction can be justified based on the evidence. This was far from an open/shut case, especially with the prosecutorial mistakes that occurred. It'll be interesting to see how long deliberations will last.

Does anyone know the make-up of the jury (age/gender/etc.?)

Now that's just rude.

I predict Michael will be found guilty of providing booze to a minor and walk on the rest.

(In the past, I have incorrectly guessed the verdicts of "celebrity" trials. We shall see how this one goes.)

They have left for the nearest bar to "drown their sorrows" at the loss of their "gravy train"!

While I don't have much faith in California and its juries..., M. Jackson is a serial pedophile whose MONEY has kept him out of prison for decades through "out-of-court" settlements!

The prison population has a certain "fondness" for pedophiles. Hopefully, Jackson will be given the opportunity to experience such "fondness" soon!

He's guilty but he will be acquitted because of sloppy work by the DA.

However, I don't think Jackson will live much longer. He'll either commit suicide or he will become so sick from the stress that he gets sick and dies. I give him a year, two at the tops.....He's already losing weight since he hasn't been getting his protein drinks from the little boys.

I believe he'll be found innocent of the conspiracy to imprison the family (not sure of official term); guilty of child molestation, and, guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor (by plying the kids with booze). The later charge seems to be a given.

Will the Michael movie outdraw the neo Deep Throat movie? By more than ten to one, that is.

I feel exactly as I did when the Simpson criminal jury took the case: he's obviously guilty, and he's going to walk.


I actually won a case of beer in a bet with a buddy. What will be the result of the OJ trial? Everyone gave their predictions, and I said "he's going to walk. No doubt." They thought I'd lost my mind.

Hung Jury with most jurors wanting to convict. One befuddled old lady holdout screws the prosecutions case.

If he doesn't walk, he'll fly to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US. Roman Polanski comes to mind, among others
Personally I could give a Rats @ss. The majority of the criminal court system in California is corrupt, mainly due to jurors that want to write books or whatever.

Were they wearing pins with Michael's picture on it? That would be grounds to overturn any conviction these days.

I'm going to say he walks because the prosecution had Zero evidence.

The judge told Jackson he will have one hour to return to court once the verdict is reached. I'm thinking he will have to stay at the courthouse!

For the sake of the kids involved, I hope Jackson really is innocent. (But I don't think he is.)

Don't tell the defendant the jury's hung, or we may have to go through this all over again!

No, he walks because the State did not prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. This is America, correct?
