Pop king Michael Jackson was arrested in November 2003 in Santa Barbara, California on charges related to child molestation. Jackson posted the $3 million dollar bail, was officially indicted in March 2004, and after a month long trial in 2005, was found not guilty of the ten counts of child molestation and endangerment charges.
