Michael Jackson and his lawyer will “choose their own time and their own place” to surrender, a family lawyer said today.
Police are waiting today for Jackson to hand himself over to authorities after they announced the singer faced multiple child sex charges.
Jackson left Las Vegas in his private jet yesterday, but his whereabouts were unknown.
Brian Oxman, who has been a lawyer for the Jackson family for years but is not representing the singer in this case, said Jackson and lawyer Mark Geragos were working on the timing of the surrender.
“They will choose their own time and their own place to do this,” Oxman said. “It will be designed to be as quick as possible from their own perspective.”
A family friend, Steve Manning, said Jackson’s family went to Las Vegas to support him.
“He feels he’s been wrongly accused and he’s going to fight this tooth and nail,” Manning said.
”He's at war right now and he’s going to use any weapon he has to fight these charges.”
