ABSTRACT
This article comments on criminal cases raised against pop singer Michael Jackson. Jackson was booked under allegations of child molestation. The accusations are strikingly similar to those brought a decade ago by another 13-year-old boy. Moreover, California legislation was changed in the wake of Jackson's settlement a decade ago, making it more difficult, but not impossible, for alleged child abusers to arrange big-money settlements that could short-circuit criminal prosecutions. Moreover, California legislation was changed in the wake of Jackson's settlement a decade ago, making it more difficult, but not impossible, for alleged child abusers to arrange big-money settlements that could short-circuit criminal prosecutions. While the 45-year-old Jackson has acknowledged that he allows children to sleep in his bed, he has denied having any sexual contact with minors.
