Immunity Issue In Michael Jackson Trial

A prosecution witness, a former MJ employee, was granted use immunity in the MJ case, but when he talked to investigators, he didn't say what they wanted to hear, so he was not called.  Now, the defense wants to call him, forcing him to talk under that same grant of immunity.  It raises age-old questions about the government's ability to get harmful testimony while suppressing exculpatory information through selective grants of immunity.
