In his first public statement since his acquittal, Michael Jackson used his Web site to express his gratitude to his supporters. "Thank you to my family, friends and fans for all of your love and support," reads the new post signed by the forty-six-year-old pop star.
On Monday in Santa Maria, California, Jackson was found not guilty of all ten charges he faced, including committing lewd acts upon a minor, giving an intoxicant to a minor to assist with committing a felony, and conspiracy to abduct a child.
Jackson's lawyer, Thomas Mesereau Jr., told the Associated Press yesterday that Jackson will cease from sharing his bed with children because it "it makes him vulnerable to false charges."
