Michael Jackson accused of molestation by choreographer

He was a main witness for the defense when Michael Jackson was cleared of child molestation charges in 2005. Now a choreographer and TV personality is claiming that Jackson, indeed, sexually abused him.

Wade Robson claims he was abused by Jackson during a seven-year period. If he's successful in getting his claims into court, he could collect damages from Jackson's estate.

The man who defended Jackson in the molestation case is fiercely denying the new claims by Robson. Thomas Mesereau Junior says the allegation by Robson "makes no sense" - especially since he testified in Jackson's defense and was adamant that he had never been improperly touched or molested by the pop star.
