Lawyers for Michael Jackson have ended the case with their closing arguments, leaving the eight members of the jury to decide whether he is guilty of child molestation.

In their closing argument, the defence showed a video tape of Jackson professing his innocent love of children, explaining that he felt he was misunderstood by other adults.

The prosecution ended their case with a very different video tape. It showed the accuser telling a police detective that Jackson had given him alcohol and molested him in bed at his ranch in Neverland. The boy was 13 years old when the interview was recorded.

Jackson's fate lies in the hands of the jury now, as the waiting game begins.
