Michael Jackson

In 2005, pop music legend Michael Jackson was acquitted on charges that he sexually abused a 13-year-old boy, gave the boy alcohol to seduce him and held the child and his family captive at Jackson's Neverland Ranch home. He previously faced similar accusations of child molestation in 1993, although an out-of-court settlement was reached.
