Massive Support For Jackson Court Appearance

Fans, family and friends of troubled pop superstar Michael Jackson are planning to flock to his aid when he is arraigned later this week on child molestation charges.

Fan clubs for the "Thriller" singer have arranged cars and buses to travel to the courthouse in Santa Barbara, California, this Friday, so they can express their support for their idol.

Angel Hjowansky, a publicist helping co-ordinate the event says, "We've had fans calling from out of state who are flying in just for the arraignment."

Jackson is charged with seven counts of performing lewd acts on a child under 14 and two counts of administering an 'intoxicating agent' to a child.
