Jackson Deliberations Continue

Jackson deliberations continue

Jurors have resumed deliberations in Michael Jackson's child molestation trial. Fans and Jackson's lawyers are waiting at the courthouse. Jackson's father showed up there, too, but Jackson himself hasn't been seen. He's not required to be at the court during jury deliberations.

Yesterday, Jackson went to a hospital complaining of back pain. He went home after about six hours. Jesse Jackson, who spoke to Michael Jackson yesterday, told AP radio the singer is in "great pain," but otherwise is holding up well and expects to be acquitted.

Jackson is charged with molesting a 13-year-old boy in 2003. He's also accused of plying him with wine and conspiring to hold the boy's family captive.

Jurors deliberated for about two hours Friday before breaking for the weekend.
