Episode 79: Recanted.


This week with HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary making headlines, Ann, Becky and Dan discuss recanting statements and testimonies. In a lot of cases recanting a statement signifies perjury but typically the crime isn’t prosecuted. We also discuss some of the reasons people recant statements like intimidation, feeling guilty, fear of retaliation, etc… We also give our initial thoughts on the Leaving Neverland documentary in which two men who previously testified that Michael Jackson did not sexually abuse them as children are essentially recanting their testimonies.
