Michael Jackson Acquitted
Michael Jackson has been acquitted of all charges, CNN television reports.
Jurors in the Michael Jackson child-molestation trial told the trial judge Monday that they have reached a verdict.
The announcement came after about 32 hours of deliberations.
The verdict is expected to be read soon. The scheduled delay in delivering the verdict allows Jackson time to arrive at the Santa Maria courthouse. He has been awaiting the verdict at his Neverland Ranch.
I’m about to leave the office for an event in D.C., so you’ll likely know the details before I can blog on them.
