Michael Jackson faces a year in jail, even if he is not convicted of child abuse.
Jackson will be charged with giving alcohol to a minor.
This is less worse than being accused of plying a minor with drink, in order to sexually abuse him.
If the jury agrees that Jackson gave Gavin Arvizo alcohol, he will go to jail for up to 12 months.
If he is found guilty of molestation, he will face up to 20 years in jail.
