Time For "Star" To Shine

Poor "little" brother Star Arvizo (aka, Daniel Jackson) hasn't gotten the attention he deserves. so now, we're going to focus on his testimony, and his testimony alone.

- One of the most memorable moments of Star's testimony, is him insisting during direct examination and cross examination that the "barely legal" magazine shown in a photograph is the same exact magazine that was shown to him and his brother by Michael Jackson, until Mesereau points out a huge factor, that the magazine wasn't even published when the boys where at Neverland and it was published months after they left NL for the very last time.
then of course he goes back and says he meant it was a "barely legal" magazine, just not the same issue.

P.S : Exhibit no. 86 is a picture that shows a brief case and a bunch of "girlie magazines"
Direct examination By Tom Sneddon :
11 Q. BY MR. SNEDDON: All right. People’s 86.
12 Do you recognize that.
13 A. Yes.
14 Q. Is that an accurate depiction of what it
15 represents.
16 A. Yes.
17 Q. All right. I’m going to ask you some
18 questions about People’s 86.
19 And put it on the board, Your Honor. I move
20 it be admitted into evidence.
21 MR. MESEREAU: Objection. Foundation; and
22 authenticity and relevance.
23 THE COURT: On 86.
24 MR. SNEDDON: Yes. I asked him and he said
25 it accurately depicted the materials.

Cross examination By Tom Mesereau :
6 Q. And what you’re looking at is Exhibit 86,
7 right.
8 A. I don’t see the number.
9 Q. Okay. Just -- what you’re looking at is
10 a -- appears to be a black briefcase with some
11 girlie magazines, right.
12 A. Yes.
13 Q. And the first one says "Barely Legal" on it;
14 do you see that.
15 A. Yes.
16 Q. And it appears to be a blonde woman lifting
17 up her shirt, correct.
18 A. Yes.
19 Q. And it appears to be a blonde woman who’s
20 exposing her breasts, right.
21 A. Yes.
22 Q. And she appears to be wearing a dark pair of
23 shorts, right.
24 A. Yes.
25 Q. Before you testified yesterday you looked at
26 that photograph with Prosecutor Sneddon, correct.
27 A. Yes.
28 Q. You told Prosecutor Sneddon that those are 1279
1 the magazines you had seen at Neverland, right.
2 A. Yes.
3 Q. You told Prosecutor Sneddon that Michael
4 Jackson had showed you those magazines, right.
5 A. Yes.
6 Q. Michael Jackson never showed you that
7 magazine, "Barely Legal," did he.
8 A. What.
9 Q. Michael Jackson never showed you that
10 magazine, "Barely Legal," did he.
11 A. He did show us.
12 Q. He did.
13 A. Yes.
14 Q. Well, Star, did you look at the date of the
15 magazine. It’s August of 2003, is it not.
16 A. Well, I never said that was exactly that
17 one.
18 Q. Well, your family had left Neverland many
19 months before, never to return, correct.
20 A. That -- I’m telling you that that wasn’t
21 exactly the one he showed us.
22 Q. That’s not what you said yesterday, and it’s
23 not what you said today, right.

- we HAVE to give him credit for making up excuses on the spot! he was really great with that. and he didn't care how stupid or ridiculous those excuses were as long as it was an excuse to cover up his lies.
here are just a couple of examples :

10 Q. Would it refresh your recollection if I show
11 you a transcript from a police interview.
12 A. Sure.
13 MR. MESEREAU: May I approach, Your Honor.
14 THE COURT: Yes.
15 MR. SNEDDON: Excuse me, what page.
16 THE WITNESS: The lady might have misheard
17 me.
18 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: Excuse me, what did you
19 just say.
20 A. I never looked into the can.
21 Q. You said a lady might have misheard you.
22 A. The -- I don’t know what her -- what the --
23 Q. The court reporter.
24 A. Yes.
25 Q. Oh, you think the court reporter made a
26 mistake.
27 A. Yes.

about something else :
6 A. I never said that. That’s just a paragraph
7 that somebody wrote
- Now, three of THE MOST important parts of Star's testimony is him witnessing the alleged molestation :

* first of all, he and many others testified that when someone enters the hallways leading up to Michael Jackson's bedroom, a bell would go off so that Mr.Jackson would be aware that someone is aproaching his bedroom, and Star said that the bell did in fact go off before he witnessed the alleged molestation.

* he says that the lights inside the bedroom were turned off including the ones above the bed where he claims Michael Jackson and his brother were. and the only lights that were on were one or two on the stairs leading up to Mr.Jackson's bedroom. yet, he magically was able to see alot of vivid details about what Mr.Jackson was doing, and that he had his eyes closed. and that there was vodka in the room. he observed all of that when he claims he only stood at the stairs for no more than 4 seconds with the lights turned off inside the room.

* Star told the grand jury that he was five-feet-two tall at the time. and Mr.Mesereau pointed that out because Star says he witnessed Michael Jackson molest his brother 2 times while he was standing on the stairs on two separate occasions. and it was impossible for someone that short to have seen what he claims he saw on those stairs. in fact, Mr. Mesereau wanted to take the jury to Neverland and especially to the stairs for them to see, but the judge wouldn't allow it.

also, Star's testimony about the molestation itself doesn't make much sense, and the reason it doesn't make sense is this :
1 where you saw your brother and Mr. Jackson on the
2 bed - okay. - when you’re looking at the bed, just
3 like we saw it on the photograph here - what side of
4 the bed was the defendant on.
5 A. Left side.
6 Q. And what side was your brother on.
7 A. Right side.
8 Q. And what position was Mr. Jackson in.
9 A. On his back. On his back.
10 Q. And what position was your brother in.
11 A. He was curled up, looking to the left. He
12 was curled up facing left.
13 Q. Now, would that be looking towards Mr.
14 Jackson or away from Mr. Jackson.
15 A. Away.

6 Q. All right. Now, you said you saw "his
7 hand." Whose hands are you talking about.
8 A. Michael’s.
9 Q. All right. And where were his hands.
10 A. Left hand was in my brother’s pants and
11 right hand was in his pants.
^^^^ ok, now here I want you guys to try to picture this for a second, because what he says can't be possible unless Michael Jackson can magically stretch his arm.
according to Star, Michael is on the left side of the bed on his back reaching with his LEFT hand over across his chest or stomach and reaching to Gavin who is on the right side of the bed (not middle) and sleeping on his left side. how is that even possible? (btw, if he was looking to the left like star said, he should be facing Michael not have his back to him.. but anyway) ...
an even better question is, if it was possible, why would Michael put himself through so much trouble? LMAO! it would just be easier to put his right hand inside Gavin's pants and jerk off with the left.
and before anyone thinks I'm over analyzing things, Star mentioned this more than once and made it clear how and where both MJ and Gavin were on the bed. and he described the second molestation he claimed he saw as Michael doing the same thing, the only difference is that the second time, his brother was on his back.
- Here are just some contradictions about statements he made in other testimonies before the trial, let's begin with the biggest one :
4 Q. Do you remember you told the Santa Barbara
5 Grand Jury that you saw Michael Jackson touching
6 your brother a lot?
7 A. Probably. I don't remember.
8 Q. You said he would try to fix your brother's
9 shirt. Do you remember that?
10 A. Yeah.
11 Q. You said he would be touching him a lot,
12 right?
13 A. I don't remember.
14 Q. You said, "He would, like, fix his shirt."

28 Q. Okay. You were asked the question, "He

1 would be touching him a lot?"
2 "A. Yeah.
3 "Q. Not his genitals, not his penis?
4 "A. I never saw that

25 Q. Okay. Now, you told the Santa Barbara
26 Sheriffs that Frank threatened you and your family,
27 right.
28 A. He just threatened me. 1317
1 Q. He just threatened you alone.
2 A. He probably threatened my family.
3 Q. Did he threaten you alone.
4 A. Yes.
5 Q. Do you know when that was.
6 A. I don’t know the date.
7 Q. Was it when you first got to Neverland.
8 A. I don’t really remember.
9 Q. Was it after the Miami trip.
10 A. Yes.
11 Q. Do you know how soon after the Miami trip.
12 A. I think it was right before the rebuttal.
13 Q. Right before the rebuttal.
14 A. I was trying to go talk to my mom.
15 Q. So this would be before, if I represent to
16 you the rebuttal was June 20th, right.
17 A. Yes.
18 Q. Excuse me, February 20th, pardon me.
19 February 20th was the rebuttal tape, right.
20 A. Okay.
21 Q. And you’re saying that Frank threatened you
22 right before the rebuttal tape.
23 A. While I was trying to walk to my mom’s guest
24 unit.
25 Q. Okay. But it was -- as far as you know,
26 it’s before the rebuttal tape, right.
27 A. Yes.
28 Q. Okay. And in one of your sheriffs’ 1318
1 interviews, you were asked why Frank made that
2 threat, right.
3 A. Yes.
4 Q. And you told the sheriffs, "Because he
5 already knew that what Michael did to us, and if we
6 told them the truth, he would have went to jail,"
7 right.
8 A. Can I read that.
9 Q. Yes.
10 May I approach, Your Honor.
11 THE COURT: Yes.
12 Q. BY MR. MESEREAU: Have you had a chance to
13 look at that page.
14 A. Yes.
15 Q. Do you remember saying that to the sheriffs.
16 A. Yes.
17 Q. And you told them, essentially, that Frank
18 said that to you, threatened you, because he knew
19 that if you told anybody what Michael had done,
20 Michael would go to jail, right.
21 A. Yes.
22 Q. That was right before the rebuttal tape,
23 right.
24 A. I think so, yes.

( ^^^^ This is HUGE because before the trial started, they used to claim that the molestation happened BEFORE Feb 20th and it's clear from this interview, but they later changed their story to AFTER Feb 20th because they realized that Mr.Jackson wasn't anywhere around the family for the molestation to have been even possible )
7 Q. Okay. Now, did your mother ever complain to
8 you that she wanted to leave the ranch?
9 A. Yes.
10 Q. Do you know about when that was?
11 A. No. I don't know exactly.
12 Q. Do you remember telling the Santa Barbara
13 Grand Jury when you were asked the question, "Star,
14 while you were at the ranch, did you ever have any
15 discussions with your mother about the subject of
16 her wanting to leave the ranch?" and your answer
17 was, "No"?
* star gave different descriptions about seeing MJ molest gavin each time he was asked. what he said to the Santa Barbara Sheriffs was different to what he said to the grand jury, to what he said to psychologist Stanley Katz, to what he said on the stand. for example : Star told Dr.Katz that the second time he saw MJ molesting gavin, MJ was rubbing his penis against Gavin's butt, but in court he denied ever saying that. he also told Katz that he smelled marijuana. he denied that in court too and said he doesn't even know what marijuana smells like.
that was just some of the stuff that Star told Dr.Katz that he denied on the stand.
- Another thing that doesn't make any sense is Star and his brother knowing the master code which would open every door in Neverland, yet they still stuck with the "falsely imprisoned" story. how can you be held against your will when you can simply punch in a code, open the door, and go over an approximately 1 meter wooden fence? lol

- IMO, one of the most hilarious parts of his testimony was the "no clocks at Neverland" part :
9 A. They kept us away from the clocks. We
10 didn’t know the exact time or the date or nothing.
11 Q. Would you agree that overlooking Neverland
12 is a huge clock.
13 A. Yes. It’s a flower clock.
14 Q. Yes. And to the right of that big flower
15 clock is another clock, correct.
16 A. Probably.
17 Q. There are clocks all over Neverland,
18 correct.
19 A. Yes.
20 Q. And you and your brothers used to run all
21 around Neverland, right.
22 A. Yes.
23 Q. You wanted the sheriffs to think that you
24 and your family were imprisoned and kept away from
25 clocks.
26 A. No.
27 Q. That’s why you told them that lie, right.
28 A. No. 1295
1 Q. If there are clocks all over Neverland, if
2 there’s a big flower clock on a hill overlooking
3 Neverland, and if you and your brothers were running
4 freely around Neverland, why did you tell the Santa
5 Barbara Sheriffs "We were kept away from clocks and
6 time".

- AND FINALLY! I found this part to be very very VERY interesting from Star's testimony :
9 Q. Please tell the jury how many pages you were
10 mailed to review before you testified.
11 A. I didn’t count them.
12 Q. Do you know approximately how many.
13 A. No.
14 Q. Didn’t you just say 300.
15 A. I was showing you an example.
16 Q. Okay. And when did you get these pages,
17 however many there were.
18 A. When did I get them.
19 Q. Yes.
20 A. About a month ago.
21 Q. Do you know where they came from.
22 A. No.
23 Q. No idea.
24 A. No.
25 Q. They just popped up in the mail.
26 A. Yes.
27 Q. And when you got them, what did you do.
28 A. I didn’t read them. 1321
1 Q. Where did you put them.
2 A. Put them right near my bed.
3 Q. Never looked at them again.
4 A. No. Until -- until I almost came up here.
5 Q. So when you almost came up here, you looked
6 at those pages for the first time, right.
7 A. Yes.
8 Q. And how many of them did you look at.
9 A. How many.
10 Q. Yeah. Roughly.
11 A. I don’t know.
12 Q. Did you look at all of them.
13 A. Yes.
14 Q. Did someone tell you to read them.
15 A. Yes.
16 Q. Who.
17 A. Tom.
18 Q. Prosecutor Sneddon.
19 A. Yes.
There were alot more things I wanted to point out from Star's testimony. but this is too long as it is. maybe there would be a part 2 soon lol


Blogger gilesmic said...

you left out one of my favorite parts!:

Q. You’re making up that trees block your view through the telescope, aren’t you --

A. I’m just saying --

Q. -- Star.

A. -- I never really expected to look for a clock. I just looked through it. I remember trees and probably -- yeah. I remember trees, but I never really -- the telescope was up there, so me and my brother tried to look through it. 1328

Q. Why did you just tell the jury that trees prevent you from seeing clocks through the telescope on the hill that overlooks Neverland.

A. What does it matter. I mean, even when you’re down there, you can see the clock. When you’re driving the car. I don’t know what you’re trying to get at.

this is when Star was trying to say that they couldn't see any clocks at Neverland, so Tom Mesereau pointed out that the with telescope that Star and Gavin looked through, one could see several clocks. So, Star had to make up another one of his famous excuses and in this case decided to say that trees were blocking the telescope, lol.

And Star, what Mr. Mesereau is getting at is that you just lied to cover-up a flaw in you and your families made-up story.

Nah the best bit was i think after what you posted gilesmic, where he admitted that he saw clocks but the time was wrong, Mez was like, well you must have known the correct time to know the clocks you had seen were wrong.

I wanted to add that along with other things but I thought the post was too long as it is lol
maybe later I'll post a part 2 and add all those things I took out and include this one too.

You could also tell that a some of Star's statements were coached, as if there were certain phrases he was told to use if he could. For example:

Q. And long before the Miami trip, your mother was referring to him as a father figure, right.
A. My brother.
Q. Is that true.
A. Yes, my brother needed a father at that time. He was barely coming out of his terminal illness.

If you read Star's testimony just a few lines previously he says :
A. While my brother was having cancer.
Q. Was that probably the fall of 2000.
A. I don’t know the date.
Q. Was it 2001.
A. I don’t know the date.
Q. Was it 2002.
A. I just know it was between when my brother was having cancer.

Why would he refer to Gavin being sick as "was having cancer" many previous times and then suddenly switch to "his terminal illness"?

Plus, the vast majority of Star's replies are sentence fragments and with bad grammar being common (for instance, "I don't remember nothing from that case" double negative in reference to the JC Penny's case). So, based on that speech pattern, a complete, coherent sentence like: "Yes, my brother needed a father at that time. He was barely coming out of his terminal illness." would seem like it was something that he was told to say. At least, in my opinion, it certainly sounds fishy.

Basically, they thought if they kept pointing out Gavin had "cancer" the jury would believe them. That's why Gavin's story was chosen over Star's. Thats' why Stars alleged molestation was put in the background.

I hate Star and all the other kids Michael had as friends. You can't trust any kid. I was a teacher and my students were always lying about everything.

Man, if you're make your kids lie about something, at least make sure they're not mentally retarded before you put them up there on the stand.
