Beat It

Yes. He did. 10 Counts. 10 Not Guilty. Contrary to what Missing Persons sang more than twenty years ago, "EVERYBODY walks in L.A."

At least every celebrity.

UPDATE: These celebrity trials tend to bore me, so I was happy to keep this a Michael-free blog. My gut reaction was that he was most likely going to get off (no pun intended), if only because that's what usually happens in L.A.-area celebrity trials (see above). However, any substantive reason I had for that sentiment most likely came from reading Fox News' Roger Friedman. While it was quite clear that Roger seemed pro-Michael from the beginning, his many columns on the subject had a real strong control of the facts and perceptive insights on the various legal team strategies. His confidence that Michael would walk was grounded in a meticulous analysis of the major testimony and cross-examination. His last pre-verdict column is here. Check back there for what will later undoubtedly be the definitive wrap-up with various predictions about what comes next as Jackson tries to salvage an almost-completely wrecked professional and personal life.
