NEW YORK, June 14 (UPI) -- Michael Jackson, on his Web site, describes his acquittal on California child molestation charges as a major historical event.
He also compares the legal victory to the birth of Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela's release and the fall of the Berlin Wall, Access Hollywood reported.
A jury acquitted Jackson late Monday of 10 counts that included lewdness with a child under 14 and giving the alleged victim wine.
"The truth runs marathons," the site says, under a hand giving the V-for-Victory gesture made famous during World War II.
In the meantime, Jackson's lawyer, Thomas Mesereau, told CNN he believes his client has learned from his misfortunes.
Jackson must be "tougher with who he lets in to his life," Mesereau said. "He's allowed families to come into his life, not just young boys."
During the trial, Mesereau portrayed the family that claimed Jackson molested their son as grifters with a pattern of going after celebrities.
The jury foreman, Paul Rodriguez, and another juror, Raymond Hultman, both told CNN that they were troubled by Jackson's conduct.
"I have a problem with Michael Jackson's behavior," Hultman said on the show "American Morning. "And all I can say at this point is that I hope he recognizes that this is a serious problem and that his behavior is going to be affected in some way by it."
