Mother Of Jackson Accuser 'Didn't Ask For Help'

Two witnesses have told MICHAEL JACKSON's child molestation trial that the mother of his teenage accuser made no attempt to ask for help during a trip outside the singer's ranch when her family were allegedly being held prisoner by him.

The Santa Maria, California, court yesterday (16MAY05) heard from orthodontist JEAN LORRAINE SEAMOUNT and bodywaxer CAROLE McCOY that GAVIN ARVIZO's mother JANET didn't request assistance while visiting them.

Following the TV broadcast of MARTIN BASHIR's controversial documentary LIVING WITH MICHAEL JACKSON - which showed Gavin Arvizo cuddling up to the star - in early 2003, prosecutors claim Jackson and five employees held the Arvizo family captive for three weeks.

However, Jackson's housekeeper of 10 years, MARIA GOMEZ, testified Arvizo's mother had asked her for help in escaping the singer's Neverland Ranch at that time.

Gomez said, "On that occasion, she said three persons were holding her there."

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to 10 felony charges of child molestation, administering an intoxicating agent and conspiracy involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.

The trial continues.
