Four years before he died in 2009, Michael Jackson was acquitted of child-molestation charges in Santa Barbara County. Now child porn is alleged.

Radar Online posted video Wednesday of a 2003 search of Jackson’s bedroom at Neverland Ranch.

Items “collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson,” an investigator told Radar.

“Evidence seized in the home included filthy photos and videos of men, women, boys and girls in perverted positions,” the website said. “Jackson had an eerie collection of dolls scattered throughout the rooms, including a baby doll, an Alfred E. Newman doll and an ET doll.”

Former Santa Barbara prosecutor Ron Zonen told Radar: “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time.”

The Los Angeles Times quoted the Jackson estate as saying: “Everything in these reports, including what the County of Santa Barbara calls ‘content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources’ is false, no doubt timed to the anniversary of Michael’s passing.”

“Those who continue to shamelessly exploit Michael via sleazy internet ‘click bait’ ignore that he was acquitted by a jury in 2005 on every one of the 14 salacious charges brought against him in a failed witch hunt.”

And Vulture.com noted a statement given to Vanity Fair by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department:

“Some of the documents appear to be copies of reports that were authored by Sheriff’s Office personnel as well as evidentiary photographs taken by Sheriff’s Office personnel interspersed with content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources.

“The Sheriff’s Office did not release any of the documents and/or photographs to the media. The Sheriff’s Office released all of its reports and the photographs as part of the required discovery process to the prosecution and the defense.”
