Jackson - Damning evidence allowed by judge

In the last hour Judge Melville has allowed 1993 evidence in what may be the breakthrough for the prosecution. The evidence is in the form of a number of books depicting ‘nude boys’. One, titled "The Boy: A Photographic Essay," contains an inscription signed by "M.J." that reads: "Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in the boys' faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I've never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children." Another, "Boys Will Be Boys," has an affectionate inscription indicating it was given to Jackson by a fan identified as "RHonDA." Judge Melville said the books would be considered sexually explicit under California law. Prosecutor Ron Zonen said the material "adequately corroborates" testimony about the 1993 allegations.
