Michael Jackson arrives with attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr (R) for jury selection in his child molestation trial at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in Santa Maria, January 31, 2005. Michael Jackson arrived at a California courthouse on Monday - his freedom, career and reputation on the line - as jury selection began in the pop star's child molestation trial. Jackson, who said on Sunday that he would be "acquitted and vindicated" at trial, walked briskly into the courthouse dressed all in white and accompanied by his lawyer and a phalanx of bodyguards.
