Mr Jackson will be asked to enter a plea next week

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE><!-- E IIMA -->A grand jury has indicted pop star Michael Jackson who will now appear in court next week.

The move means the panel decided there was enough evidence against Mr Jackson for him to face a trial.

There have been no details of the accusations considered by the grand jury and new charges could be brought against the 45-year-old singer.

He was arrested in November amid accusations that he molested a 12-year-old boy but denies any wrongdoing.

Under those charges, he faces seven counts of child abuse and two of plying the boy with alcohol in order to seduce him.

Mr Jackson has dismissed the accusations as "a big lie" aimed at extorting money from him. The BBC's Peter Bowes in Los Angeles says it is believed that the alleged victim may have been among the witnesses to testify before the grand jury during its closed-door 13-day hearing. Mr Jackson is now expected to appear in court on 30 April to be charged formally and enter a plea.
