Jermaine Jackson said Friday that he will request a state and federal investigation into the authorities who are working on the child-molestation case against his younger brother, pop star Michael Jackson.

Jermaine Jackson - Biography - AOL Music (184 words)
The lone Jackson family member to stay with Motown while the other brothers split for CBS/Epic (he was then married to Berry Gordy's daughter Hazel), Jermaine enjoyed a artistically diffident career during the '70s at Motown, surfacing with an occasional hit like a remake of "Daddy's Home" (1972) and "Let's Be Young Tonight" (1975).
Jermaine got a badly needed shot in the arm from Stevie Wonder, who wrote and produced "Let's Get Serious," a Top Ten pop and soul dance hit that came around the time of brother Michael's pop ascendancy.
Jackson has recorded sporadically since, though he generated contraversy in 1991 when "Word to the Badd," a thinly veiled attack on his brother Michael, was leaked out to urban music stations.
