ABSTRACT
The article focuses on singer Michael Jackson's trial for sexually molesting a 12-year-old male cancer patient. The author says that in a criminal trial not guilty does not mean innocent. Thus, in situations such as the controversial outcome of Michael's trial for sexually molesting a 12-year-old male cancer patient, perhaps American jurisprudence should adopt the ruling used in Scottish courts. When a defendant is acquitted at trial, it is called not proven. He says he felt the evidence against Michael was overwhelming, including sleazy, homoerotic material at his palatial Neverland estate available to young male guests.
