Lawyers for Michael Jackson are setting out today to punch holes in the credibility of the sister of his accuser.
The 18-year-old college freshman is again on the stand, and Jackson attorney Thomas Mesereau has been asking her about testimony she gave last week. She testified then about a civil case in which her family sued a department store over an encounter with security guards.
Last week, she said she didn't know anything about that case. Monday, she acknowledged that she had been present for the deposition given by her younger brother.
She also said last week that she hadn't been aware of any school discipline problems involving her brother. Monday, Mesereau pointed out that the boy had said during his deposition that he had been thrown out of school.
She responded that she didn't remember him saying it.
Last week, the sister testified that she saw Jackson kissing her brother on the head and cheek, and that Jackson poured wine for both of her brothers and for her.
