The MAIN PRODUCT is a powerpoint presentation of the criminal legal problems of the late Michael Jackson. This material includes the following:

Jordan Chandler’s father obtained a fifteen million dollar civil settlement from Jackson paid by his insurance company. This was the case where it was determined Jackson's health would not survive any more fighting against Chandler’s father for alleged sexual contact with his underage son. There was much subsequent evidence that the Chandler case was fabricated by Chandler’s father. Most convincingly, Jordan Chandler, after Jackson’s death, came forward to say publicly that his father had made him lie. His father later killed himself at age 65.

The Gavin Arvizo case was an actual county prosecutor's case. As the Jackson case unwound, it became clear that the mother was seriously disturbed and should be under professional care. The prosecution, defense and jury members all noticed her extreme emotional states while testifying. Jackson's lawyers subpoenaed the psychiatric reports she had been forced to submit to in another lawsuit. They submitted her mental condition to the court with those confirming reports constantly, stating in their documents that, “The complaining mother is a paranoid schizophrenic with sexual delusions who infuses those delusions on her children”. Jackson was acquitted.

People of the State of California v. Conrad Robert Murray was the Involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray for causing Jackson's death from a massive overdose of the general anesthetic Propofol along with other prescribed drugs. The Chief of forensic pathology at the coroner's office, testified as to the results of the autopsy he had done on Jackson. He determined the cause of death to be acute propofol intoxication. He classed it a homicide. He testified that Murray administered too much propofol and that the "circumstances do not support self-administration.” He testified it was likely that "Murray was estimating the doses and accidentally gave too much.”
