    Police search Michael Jackson's home in California

    19.11.2003 8.26 am

    LOS ANGELES - Police searched pop star Michael Jackson's opulent Neverland Ranch, near Santa Barbara, today after authorities issued a search warrant related to a criminal investigation, a police spokesman said.

    While police did not specify the nature of the investigation, the cable channel Court TV said the search warrant stemmed from allegations of sexual abuse brought by a 12-year-old boy against the self-styled king of pop.

    A spokesman for Jackson was not immediately available for comment. The allegations come nine years after a 14-year-old reached an out-of-court agreement to settle a lawsuit accusing the singer of molesting him in 1992. No criminal charges were ever brought in that case

    Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch raided in criminal probe
    Associated Press

    LOS OLIVOS – Investigators conducting a criminal probe swarmed Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch on Tuesday, a sheriff's spokesman said. The purpose of the search was not disclosed.

    Authorities from the Santa Barbara County sheriff's and district attorney's offices served a warrant about 8:30 a.m. as part of an "ongoing criminal investigation," Sgt. Chris Pappas said in a recorded statement on a media information line.

    The district attorney's office had no comment, said legal secretary Debbie Popp.

    It was not known whether Jackson or his children were at the Santa Ynez Valley property, which has its own zoo and amusement park with bumper cars, a merry-go-round and Ferris wheel.

    Nearly 10 years have passed since the 45-year-old singing superstar faced a child-molestation investigation in a case that never resulted in criminal charges.

    The singer who had international hits with the albums "Thriller" (1982), "Bad" (1987) and "Dangerous" (1991), saw his career begin to collapse in 1993 amid allegations he molested a boy. Jackson maintained his innocence, and charges were never filed. He reportedly paid a multimillion-dollar settlement.

    Jackson is also connected to Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano, who has begun serving federal prison time for possessing illegal explosives, and is being investigated about whether he secretly taped conversations of celebrities and their lawyers.

    Pellicano, 59, reportedly worked for Jackson while the singer was under investigation for child molestation in the early 1990s.

    As the raid was under way, Court TV reported that the warrant was tied to allegations brought by a 12-year-old boy. That could not immediately be confirmed by The Associated Press.

    Jackson's spokesman, Stuart Backerman, did not answer his cell phone and did not immediately return messages Tuesday.

    In a television documentary broadcast on ABC earlier this year, Jackson said he had slept in a bed with many children. "When you say bed you're thinking sexual," the singer said. "It's not sexual, we're going to sleep. I tuck them in. ... It's very charming, it's very sweet."

    The search came on the same day Epic Records released "Number Ones," a greatest hits collection featuring Jackson's new single, "One More Chance." On Nov. 26, CBS is scheduled to air a Jackson special consisting mainly of old concert footage.

    Jackson has three children, and caused an international uproar last year when he displayed his baby, Prince Michael II, to fans by dangling him briefly from a fourth-floor balcony in Germany, where he had gone to accept an award.

    Jackson called the incident a "terrible mistake," and Berlin authorities said the actions were not punishable.

    Not much is known about Prince Michael II, whose mother has not been identified. The singer's 6-year-old son, Prince Michael I, and 5-year-old daughter, Paris, were born during his marriage to Debbie Rowe, his plastic surgeon's nurse, which ended in 1999.

    He was also married to Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis's daughter, between 1994 and 1996.

    Jackson routinely keeps the children's heads covered with cloth while escorting them in public – and he usually sports a surgical mask himself when out and about. He has said he wants to protect them from the public eye.

    I'm no fan of Jackson's (in fact I can't stand the twat) but to say it get's brushed under the carpet because of who he is a more than a little unfair.

    If he had been "an ordinary member of the public" it is doubtful whether this raid would have even made the news. And it is not unknown for people to make stories up against famous/rich people in the hope of getting a big payout either from the person themselves or alternatively from the media.

    I prefer to wait until a proper investigation has been conducted before commenting on his "actions".

    Excellent Lynx.

    In addition, police and prosecutors need to be especially careful when dealing with allegations made by children.
    I'm sure that they are being cautious, not "brushing it under the rug." A procedural error at this stage could destroy any future hope of prosecution.

    Nor me.

    This smells kinda rank.

    I'm not one to jump the gun, but I think it's about time someone got to the bottom of this cat's bag of tricks.

    He's already suspected of buying off one (or more) accusers.

    It's not as if he's worried what anyone thinks.

    i didn't grow up with michael jackson, so i don't "love" him or his music.

    I think he is a perverted sicko who needs to be put behind bars.

    Hes dangled his kid one to many times.

    Molesting kids is the lowest of the low

    he deserves jail.

    Yes, kAb, but we must allow the process to wend it's way forward-we must let the wheels turn, yes?

    If he is found to be guilty of something, then tear his balls off, and feed them to his giraffe, or one of his monkeys.
