Both sides have rested in Michael Jackson's child-molestation trial in California, but prosecutors hope to have the jury see the accuser again, on videotape.

In their rebuttal testimony, prosecutors want to play an hour-long police interview of the boy from July 2003. The defense says if that's allowed, it will demand the boy return to the stand for more cross-examination.

The final defense witness was comedian Chris Tucker. He testified yesterday that the accuser's mother sometimes acted "possessed." Tucker said the woman and her family are the villains in the piece. Tucker said the accuser himself could be "cunning," even at age 12.

The overall defense message has been: the family lies and is greedy and their molestation accusations were an effort to win a big payday.
