Jackson molestation case: questioning of prospective jurors postponed

Prospective jurors in the Michael Jackson molestation case were asked in a questionnaire released Wednesday if they can fairly judge people of different races, have ever been diagnosed with &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2003/01/18/42225.html ' target=_blank>cancer and have ever experienced or been accused of inappropriate &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/fun/2002/01/24/25986.html' target=_blank>sexual behavior.

The questionnaire, which the roughly 250 prospects were asked to fill out during pretrial screening Monday and Tuesday, was designed to weed out jurors who might have strong feelings that would keep them from ruling fairly in the case.

Jackson is accused of molesting a 13-year-old former cancer patient, says CBS News.
