Jurors Begin Deliberations

Jurors begin deliberations in Michael Jackson's molestation trial

Jurors in the Michael Jackson case have the weekend off before returning Monday to resume deliberations. They deliberated for about two hours Friday before adjourning.

The deliberations are the final step in a trial that began 14 weeks ago. In his closing argument Defense attorney Thomas Mesereau, junior, portrayed Jackson as a victim of grifters trying to pull "the biggest con of their careers." Mesereau also played video exerpts from an interview in which Jackson says his love for children is pure and innocent.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen played a video of the teenage accuser describing how Jackson allegedly molested him when he was 13 and recovering from cancer. Jackson could face several years in prison if convicted of all charges.
