Jackson's accuser appears in court
13:30 14 January 2005
The boy who has accused Michael Jackson of sexual abuse has given details of his alleged ordeal.
Gavin Arvizo's 1,900-page testimony claimed Jackson fondled him and forced him to walk around naked.
During the hearing in California, the now 15-year-old also told the jury how Jackson lay down beside him in bed and groped him - his face contorted with lust.
He then described how the singer explained to the cancer-suffering boy how men have to pleasure themselves.
Gavin told the courtroom: "Michael told me he wanted to teach me. He put his hand down my pants and he started rubbing me - my private area.
"His eyes were squinching really tight."
The assault - which Jackson denies - allegedly took place at one of the star's many sleepovers at his Neverland Ranch.
Court documents also claimed the singer plied Gavin with alcohol - despite knowing he had just one kidney and too much liquor could kill him.
Jackson reportedly shrugged off Gavin's concerns and continued to hand him cocktails in soft drink cans.
The jury ruled Jackson should face the counts of child molesting, conspiracy, kidnapping and extortion and now faces up to 74 years in prison if convicted.
