2004: A California grand jury indicts Michael Jackson on child molestation charges after determining there is enough evidence to proceed with allegations made against him by a 13-year-old boy he had befriended and spent time with at his Neverland Ranch. On June 13, 2005, a jury found Jackson not guilty on all charges following a nearly five-month long trial.
