Sheriff's vans brought the eight women and four men of the jury to the courthouse, where Jackson fans and members of the news media waited in anticipation of a verdict.
The jury, which put in about two hours after getting the case Friday afternoon, completed its first full day of deliberation yesterday. The jury has followed the trial schedule of a six-hour day, including three 10-minute breaks but no lunch break.
Jackson, 46, is accused of molesting a 13-year-old cancer survivor in 2003, plying him with wine and conspiring to hold his family captive to get them to rebut a damaging TV documentary about the entertainer. If convicted on the molestation counts, he could be sentenced to several years in prison.
