Mesereau twice suggested in his opening statements that jurors would hear from Jackson, saying, in reference to the accuser's family: "Michael will tell you one time he got a very bad feeling at Neverland."
The defense attorney also said, after DA Thomas Sneddon previously mentioned Jackson's showing sexually explicit magazines to his accuser and his younger brother: "Mr. Jackson will freely admit that he does read girlie magazines from time to time. He absolutely does not show them to children."
During the courtroom showing the TV documentary, Jackson, dressed in black silk pants and a red and gold vest, momentarily gyrated his shoulders to the beat of "Billie Jean" on the film's soundtrack. The room became hushed when Jackson spoke of abuse at the hands of his father. Jackson's mother Catherine, in court with brother Jackie, wiped tears from her eyes.
Later, as he left the Santa Maria, Calif., courthouse Tuesday, Jackson told reporters that he felt "good" but "angry."
