I haven't been following the Michael Jackson trial that closely, but how can the defense team make the argument that the boy's family are out for money when this went to a criminal trial? If they wanted to cash out, wouldn't they have just threatened him and taken the multi-million dollar payout like the last couple of kids?

Haven't they changed Californian law (after the last Jackson pay-out in the 90s) so that parties who settle civil disputes out-of-court privately can no longer prevent a criminal trial? I have no idea what to believe in this trial, but you have to admit the mother's motives are a bit suspect :)
