Jackson - 'rebuttal' proceedings over

After a short rebuttal by the prosecution in the Michael Jackson child molestation case, the proceedings are now at a finish. On Friday a film was shown to the jury in which Gavin Arviso talks to police for the first time, outlining the accusations which brought Jackson to the dock. The defence had threatened to recall Arviso and others, but in a surprise move, late Friday afternoon, they rested their case. All that remains is for the two sides to give their closing arguments. This will be delayed due to the Memorial Day holiday on Monday. But it is expected the jury will be sent out by the end of next week.
