Jackson Accuser Wraps Up Testimony

Jackson accuser wraps up testimony

Michael Jackson's accuser has explained why he told a school official that Jackson never molested him.

The boy testified under questioning by a prosecutor that he made the statement in a bid to stop schoolmates from "making fun" of him. He said when he returned to school after his last stay at Jackson's ranch in 2003, schoolmates joked that Jackson had "raped" him. The boy said he got in several fights as a result, and when confronted by the school dean, told him Jackson never molested him.

The exchange came after Jackson's lawyer wrapped up his cross-examination of the now 15-year-old. The boy testified last week that Jackson molested him at least twice.
