Michael Jackson’s former maid testified in his child-molestation trial today, calling the singer’s Neverland ranch ”Pinocchio’s Pleasure Island,” a place where children were allowed to run amok, without parental supervision, and sometimes appeared to be intoxicated. The Associated Press reported that the housekeeper, Kiki Fournier, also told the jury that Jackson’s accuser and his brother became increasingly out of control, and the room they shared became increasingly dirty, during their 2003 Neverland visit.

Late Wednesday, the jury was shown pornography seized in Jackson’s home, including Barely Legal magazine, in which female subjects are made up to appear underage, as well as Penthouse. Three police officers took the stand, stating the material was found in Jackson’s bedroom and bathroom, according to Reuters.

The 46-year-old entertainer is accused of plying his then-13-year-old accuser with alcohol, and then molesting him. Jackson could face more than 20 years in jail if convicted of all charges.
