A second boy made molestation allegations against Michael Jackson in 1993, a retired sheriff has revealed.

The first plaintiff JORDY CHANDLER famously dropped charges after his family were given an alleged multi-million dollar civil settlement.

And now former Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Thomas has revealed Chandler was not alone - a second boy complained, but was reluctant to testify, so the case was abandoned.

Thomas says his claims of molestation were not as severe as Chandler's, but the second child could have been used as a corroborating witness if Chandler had testified in court.

Jackson is being investigated for allegedly abusing 12-year-old cancer patient GAVIN ARVIZO.
