END OF JACKSON PROBE IS NEAR, PROSECUTOR SAYS

SHARE END OF JACKSON PROBE IS NEAR, PROSECUTOR SAYS

Two prosecutors are still spending full time on the Michael Jackson case even though not much has been heard about it since the singer settled a child sex-abuse lawsuit.

In his monthly meeting with reporters this week, Los Angeles District Attorney Gil Garcetti said the prosecutors are interviewing and reinterviewing witnesses who seem to have more to say."I honestly believe we're near the end of the investigation," Garcetti said. "But I honestly believed that a couple of months ago."

A Santa Barbara County grand jury that investigated Jackson disbanded April 30 without taking action. A now 14-year-old boy accused Jackson of seducing him into having sex in both counties over five months, prompting separate criminal investigations that began last August.
