'Leaving Neverland' Skeptics Want Michael Jackson's Accusers Arrested

By Anna Quintana

During the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, Wade Robson and James Safechuck detailed the abuse they say the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, inflicted on them. 

The choreographer and aspiring director, who grew up around the "Thriller" singer, revealed they were sexually molested for years — claims that go against testimony Wade and James once provided in court in defense of Jackson. 

This has some viewers wondering how the two accusers could tell their story without facing some sort of legal repercussions for previously lying under oath. 

So, are Wade and James guilty of perjury? 

In 1993, James, 40, testified during Jackson's trial, when he was accused by Jordan "Jordy" Chandler of sexual molestation for the first time. At the time, James denied he was molested by Jackson, but now claims he was "groomed" by Jackson and his legal team to lie under oath. He was 14 at the time.
