LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- "Celebrity Justice" reports California prosecutors ordered DNA tests and fingerprint analysis in Michael Jackson's child sexual abuse case.

Sources told the syndicated television show Santa Barbara, Calif., prosecutors have ordered a variety of scientific tests they believe will show the pop star placed his accuser in compromising positions.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to child molestation, conspiracy and administering an intoxicating agent.

"There is evidence, that police seized, that they believe shows that Michael Jackson did bad things to this boy," said Harvey Levin, the executive producer of "Celebrity Justice."

Levin said investigators seized Jackson's mattress and pornographic magazines from Neverland Ranch.

"Multiple sources connected with the prosecution in this case tell us they believe that Michael Jackson seduced this boy, aroused him by showing him pictures of naked women in magazines, and if these magazines ... have the boy's fingerprints, that could be powerful proof at trial."
