    LONDON (AP) — Jermaine Jackson says his family had secretly arranged to fly Michael to Bahrain if the pop icon was found guilty of child molestation.

    Jermaine was quoted as saying that a private jet financed by a friend was on standby to whisk his late brother to the Gulf emirate if the 2005 court case ended with a conviction.

    Bahrain does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S.

    Jermaine says his brother did not know about the escape plan but Michael would have “done it in a heartbeat” because “why should he go to jail for something he didn’t do?”

    The singer was found not guilty on all charges.

    He later spent a year in the emirate as a guest of a son of Bahrain’s king.
