Arvizo's Sister Speaks

Gavin Arvizo's sister Davellin, Arvizo is Jackson's accuser, took the stand yesterday in Michael Jackson's trial.

She told the jurors about the making of the TV documentary that triggered the case, a children's drinking party with Jackson, changes in her brother's behaviour and death threats.

She spoke about private jet trips, stays in luxury hotels and at Jackson's Neverland ranch and plans by the Jackson's associates to send them to Brazil.

However, she did not state that she witnessed any molestation of her brother.

She did say that he became "weird."


"Me and my brother are very, very close...During all this he didn't want to talk to me. He didn't want to be near me."

Jackson said that it was "Interesting, frustrating," to see her.

She said that at Neverland she often saw people with cups coming and going from a cellar, through a door hidden behind a jukebox. One day she decided to follow her two brothers behind the door.


"When I walked into the wine cellar I saw Michael Jackson pouring wine into cups..I drank some and then I went upstairs and left it on the counter,".

She told the jury that on February 6 2003 Jackson had her family flown by private jet to a Miami resort, where he told them not to watch the documentary that would be aired that night.

On the flight home, she said, Jackson shared a soda can with Arvizo and gave him a watch and a jacket.

She told the jury about the making of the documentary, "Living With Michael Jackson", by British journalist Martin Bashir.

She said that Jackson greeted them, when they arrived, and that he took her brother aside for 5 to 10 minutes for a private talk.

She takes the stand again today.

    I am not sure if I believe Jackson or not. But it seems to date to me that the prosecution has offered no hard evidence of his guilt. What do others think?
