Jackson Attorney Fears Trial Killed Him

The attorney who was representing MICHAEL JACKSON when the King of Pop was acquitted of child molestation in 2005 fears the sordid trial was the beginning of the end for the late pop superstar.
Thomas Mesereau led the winning legal team as Jackson was declared innocent at the end of a five-month trial, which pried deep into his private life and questioned his friendship with young boys.
Mesereau says, "The trial hurt him, for sure, because after the trial, he left Neverland never really to return. I don't think emotionally he was built to go through a horrific experience like that five-month criminal trial, and I wonder whether he ever really recovered."
