We have some breaking news when it comes to the Conrad Murray trial, and it is looking like we could very well know at the end of the week whether or not the jury finds him guilty of involuntary manslaughter for the passing of Michael Jackson back in 2009.
After a debate among the defense, it has been decided that Murray will not take the stand — largely due to a fear that the prosecution could find some way to use the doctor’s testimony to their own advantage. The defense now rests, and closing arguments are going to be made later in the week.
While we don’t know for sure if a verdict will be known by Friday, it appears likely –and for now, it’s too early to tell whether or not the jury is going to find the prosecution’s strong case good enough to lay down a guilty verdict. (The defense has been working a claim that Jackson injected the propofol himself, and thank Murray simply gave him an injection.)
What’s your read on this case at the moment?
