Jacko case moving forward

Stream of witnesses led to decision on molestation case

Pop star Michael Jackson was indicted by a Santa Barbara County grand jury investigating child molestation allegations.

Grand jury indictments are usually secret until a defendant is arraigned.

The grand jury has spent the last three weeks hearing from witnesses, including a 14-year-old boy who claims the pop superstar sexually abused him.

Four months ago, county prosecutors charged Jackson with seven counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child under the age of 14 and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent, reportedly wine. Jackson pleaded not guilty in January to those charges.
