Michael Jackson's jury will begin hearing allegations of past sexual misconduct against the singer in about two weeks.
Prosecutors have won permission to bring in a man who contends Jackson molested him 15 years ago. What's more, other witnesses
will be allowed to testify about seeing or learning of other incidents, despite the fact the alleged victims won't testify. The defense contends that some deny Jackson did anything to them.
Prosecutors say one allegation involves actor Macaulay Culkin. The defense says Culkin never accused Jackson of anything.
The judge's decision to allow in old, unproven, allegations could make the prosecution's job easier. It may also add weeks to the trial, as Jackson's lawyer promises to show past accusers were motivated by greed.
Jackson settled two such cases in the 1990s.
