Jermaine Jackson Planned to Help Michael Flee Country

Even if a jury had found Michael Jackson guilty of child molestation in 2005, the King of Pop might have avoided jail time, according to a new book.

In ‘You Are Not Alone: Michael Through A Brother’s Eyes,’ Jermaine Jackson reveals the details of a plot to fly his brother to Bahrain in the event of a guilty verdict. At the time, Michael was facing seven counts of sexual abuse and two for providing intoxicating agents with the intention of committing a felony.

“There is no way my brother — an innocent man — is going to jail for this,” Jermaine writes. “He wouldn’t survive, and I cannot sit back and even contemplate the possibility, let alone the reality.”

The pop legend was acquitted of all charges, and Jermain’s plan — which involved leaving via private jet from an airport in Van Nuys, Calif. — never took effect.

Speaking with British newspaper The Times, which has serialized the book, Jermaine attempted to justify his scheme.

“At the end of the day, this is supposed to be the land of the brave, home of the free, democracy, freedom of speech,” he said. “The way they were treating him, none of that existed. Why should he go to jail for something he didn’t do?”
