Jackson's undies for sex case



Jun 3, 2003
A NEW Jersey man has had his collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia lightened thanks to a recent raid by investigators.

Acting on orders from Santa Barbara prosecutor Tom Sneddon, agents swooped on the collection last month taking two pairs of briefs, photos and notes Jackson wrote to his "rubbers" – the name he gave to his young male friends.

The underpants, Calvin Klein white briefs, contain Jackson's bodily fluids from which prosecutors hope to extract DNA to use in the current child sexual abuse case against the pop star.

The samples will be compared with those taken from his mattress and other items from Jackson's Neverland Ranch last year, The New York Post reported.

Memorabilia owner Henry Vaccaro told the Post he had been contacted by Mr Sneddon's office several hours before the investigators arrived.

"They were interested in some things and asked me to keep a few others in case they need them," he said.

Investigators also took away photos of Jackson posing with boys.

Mr Vaccaro's collection was won after a lengthy court battle following a failed business venture with the Jackson family.

There was also a "club kit" for Jackson's rubbers which lays out rules for living.

These include requiring members to be "idiots and act crazy at all times", be vegetarians who fast on Sundays and avoid drugs, watch two episodes of The Three Stooges a day, and know the Peter Pan story.

Investigators also took a note Jackson wrote to his sister-in-law De De in which he urged her to read a news article about child molestation to her kids.

"It brings out how even your own relatives can be molesters of children, or even uncles or aunts molesting nephews or nieces," the note states.

Jackson pleaded not guilty on Saturday to a newly unsealed grand jury indictment listing a new conspiracy charge, as well as counts of molestation and giving a child alcohol.

The conspiracy count alleged 28 overt acts involving child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.

Counts two to five alleged Jackson committed a lewd act on a child. Count six alleged an attempt to have a child perform a lewd act on him. Counts seven to 10 alleged giving alcohol to assist in the commission of a felony. The crimes allegedly occurred between February 1 and March 31, 2003.
