Ex-Jackson security guard resumes testimony; judge to rule on key motions
SANTA MARIA, Calif. The Michael Jackson jury will work a-half day today, so the judge can resolve some pending motions.One is a prosecution request to have testimony from an expert on battered women, possibly to explain the apparent lack of action by the accuser's mother during her family's alleged false imprisonment.
Another prosecution motion objects to the defense plan to have two-dozen Jackson employees say he always behaved properly with children.
Ex-security guard Brian Barron, who worked at Jackson's ranch, returns to the stand today. He's testified he saw an order to keep the boy who's now Jackson's accuser on the ranch. Barron may be asked whether such orders were posted when other children visited.
He's also expected to be asked about arrival and departure logs that contradict some earlier testimony.
