    SANTA MARIA, Calif. - With a sea of cameras and fans
    outside the courthouse, Michael Jackson pleaded innocent
    Friday to child-molestation charges that could send him to
    prison - and was scolded by the judge for being 21 minutes
    late for his first court appearance

    "Mr. Jackson, you have started out on the wrong foot
    here. ... I want to advise you that I will not put up with
    that. It's an insult to the court," Superior Court Judge
    Rodney S. Melville told him.

    Jackson nodded when asked if he understood the charges and
    said "not guilty" when asked for his plea.

    Minutes earlier, hundreds of cheering and chanting fans
    had greeted Jackson's arrival, pushing in toward his
    caravan along with international television crews as the
    self-styled "King of Pop" stepped from a black sport
    utility vehicle and into the shade of a black umbrella.

    Wearing a dark suit, glittery shoes and big sunglasses,
    Jackson shook hands with fans and waved as he slowly made
    his way into the courthouse accompanied by his attorney,
    Mark Geragos.

    Inside, security ran a metal detector wand over the singer
    before allowing him into the courtroom. His parents,
    brother Jermaine and sister Janet also attended the
    hearing.

    The judge also scheduled a Feb. 13 court session to set a
    date for a preliminary hearing, the proceeding used to
    determine whether there is enough evidence to hold Jackson
    for trial.

    Santa Barbara County District Attorney Tom Sneddon
    pointedly asked, "Judge will that be 8:30?" clearly
    referring to Jackson's tardiness. The judge
    responded, "8:30."

    Horde of fans and media
    The arraignment was Jackson's first court appearance since
    being charged Dec. 18. It drew a horde of news media and
    fans to the usually quiet Santa Maria Valley in Santa
    Barbara County, where the pop star is alleged to have
    committed the crimes at his Neverland Ranch.

    Hundreds of fans were bused in from Los Angeles and Las
    Vegas to show their support for Jackson in what was dubbed
    a "Caravan of Love." Some sang as they waited for him to
    arrive and waved signs reading "Stay Strong Michael"
    and "We Believe In Michael Jackson. Leave Him Alone."

    "There's strength in numbers," said supporter Amber
    McCrary, 26, who boarded a bus in a suburban Los Angeles
    Kmart parking lot with her two small children, ages 2 and
    4, to be at the courthouse.

    Michael Jackson's sing "I'll Be There" in support of the
    entertainer as they wait outside the Santa Maria, Calif.,
    courthouse early Friday morning.
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------

    Jackson, 45, was charged with seven counts of lewd acts
    with a child under 14 and two counts of giving the child
    an "intoxicating agent," reportedly wine, between Feb. 7
    and March 10, 2003.

    Authorities did not identify the alleged victim, but
    sources close to those involved have said he is a now-
    teenage cancer patient who appeared in a documentary
    broadcast in February that showed Jackson talking about
    sleepovers with children at Neverland.

    Jackson defended the sleepovers in a recent interview on
    CBS' "60 Minutes."

    "People think sex," Jackson said. "They're thinking sex.
    My mind doesn't run that way. When I see children, I see
    the face of God. That's why I love them so much."

    The documentary, "Living With Michael Jackson," raised
    anew questions about the sleepovers that had lingered
    since molestation allegations against Jackson were
    investigated in 1993. No charges were filed in that case,
    but Jackson reportedly paid a multimillion-dollar
    settlement to a boy's family.

    Jackson said in the documentary that his practice of
    allowing children to sleep in his bed was non-sexual.

    The singer had been introduced to the boy by Jamie Masada,
    a comedy club owner who runs a children's camp. Masada
    told the singer that a child hospitalized with cancer
    wanted to meet him, and Jackson obliged, forming a
    relationship with the boy and his mother.

    What happened to that relationship in the past year has
    remained in dispute.

    Changes in relationship
    Sources close to Jackson's defense have alleged that it
    soured when the mother demanded a fee for her son's
    appearance in the documentary and Jackson refused. But
    those close to the mother claim there was no demand,
    rather that Jackson began acting strangely and barred them
    from Neverland.

    Ultimately, both Jackson and the mother obtained lawyers.
    The mother went to the same attorney who was involved in
    the 1993 allegations against Jackson and told him she
    thought her son had been molested and had been given wine
    by the pop star, sources have said.

    The lawyer advised her to have the boy see a psychologist,
    who went to authorities under a legal requirement to
    report any claims of child molestation, sources said.

    Separately, the documentary prompted a school
    administrator to complain to a hot line, triggering a Feb.
    14-27 probe of Jackson's relationship with the boy by Los
    Angeles County child welfare officials. A leaked memo said
    the boy, his siblings and mother told those officials
    nothing inappropriate occurred. Santa Barbara County's top
    prosecutor dismissed that probe as "interviews, not an
    investigation."

    The scene outside the courthouse Friday was reminiscent of
    the O.J. Simpson murder trial which became a blueprint for
    the celebrity trial.

    Although small compared to Simpson's "dream team,"
    Jackson's defense expanded Thursday with the addition of
    New York attorney Benjamin Brafman, a principal of the
    firm that won acquittal for Sean "P. Diddy" Combs on
    bribery and weapons charges in 2001.

    Melanie Dowland, a 28-year-old Jackson fan, said she
    traveled all the way from London to support Jackson at his
    arraignment.

    "I campaign for everything I believe in," Dowland
    said. "And I believe in Michael. He stands for so much -
    all the goodness in the world and innocence
