The singer's legal team are granted more time to examine evidence...

Michael Jackson‘s trial has been delayed until the end of January 2005, following a request by the star’s lawyers.

The defence team were granted more time to study the evidence by a judge in California yesterday, after they claimed there was an enormous amount to be examined.

Michael Jackson has pleaded not guilty to a ten count indictment which includes charges of child molestation, extortion, false imprisonment, child abduction and giving a minor an intoxicating agent.

The trial, which had been due to start on September 13, will now be delayed until January 31.
