Eyes shut tight


Michael Jackson’s accuser told a grand jury that the pop star closed his eyes tightly while molesting him on a bed, according to reports that quotes from transcripts of the testimony.

The boy described Jackson’s alleged crimes in graphic detail, according to the network.

The defence initially declined comment, citing a gag order in the case. But later Jackson attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr said in a statement that the defence strongly objected to the leak of sealed grand jury testimony.

The accuser told prosecutors who questioned him before the Santa Barbara County grand jury that Jackson never spoke to him during the alleged abuse and the two didn’t discuss it later, it has been reported. — AP
