Michael Jackson - Dr. Conrad Murray To Testify?

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers are currently debating whether he should take the stand at his trial for the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson in June 2009.

Although court proceedings have been halted due to today's (10.10.11) Columbus Day holiday in the US, Conrad's attorneys are reportedly hard at work, trying to decide whether having the medic testify is a good idea, especially as the prosecution have "prepared a very methodical case" against him.

A source told gossip blogger Perez Hilton: [Deputy District Attorney David Walgren] is preparing for Dr. Murray to take the stand. If Dr. Murray does take the stand, Walgren and Deputy District Attorney Deborah Brazil will be ready. Walgren has prepared a very methodical case, and would welcome the opportunity to cross-examine Dr. Murray."

According to E! Online, the decision on whether Dr. Murray will take the stand is a "fluid" one and depends on how the case progresses once it resumes tomorrow (11.10.11).

A source said: "If the legal team determines it will help the client's case to take the stand, then they will. But if it won't, then they won't put him on the stand. Absolutely no decision has been made."

Dr. Murray's legal team are said to be confident that he will make a sympathetic witness, if he is called to the stand.

The source added: "He is a very compassionate, caring person and that he would come off as unpleasant on the stand would be the last concern that his legal team would have."

If Murray takes the stand he will be 'torn' into by Deborah Brazil (Prosecution) - she is one tough classy cookie and as it stands the case is over.....is it true Murray was 'trained' by a body language expert?

If murray takes the stand we will hear more ridiculous lies coming from his an ugly mouths and I am sure I won't be able to handle that !!!! I just hope he will be punish what he did to Michael!. If he had called 911 at once Michael would have been with us now creating more beautiful songs and making a wonderful movies as well. Murray doesn't deserve to live , this creature doesn't have any remorse what he did and I have said many times before he is trying very hard to save his smelly , big and fat an ASS!!!! by lying and making up stories about Michae's death. I just hope the justice will be serve!

Yes the Jerk defense lawyer Flanagan is so stupid and trying ver hard to be smarter than the doctors asking stupid, ridiculous and pathetic questions . He really thinks that pp who are testify are stupid and don't know what they are talking about it!!! What an Asshole he is . Watching him(Flanagan) cross-examine the witnesses is very annoying and you have to have a lot of patience not to explode!! An every time I see his ugly, wrinKle face I feel like screaming out and feel like give him a very huge kick on his old ASS! His attitude towards prosecution witnesses is an absolutely disguisting., I really hate him and the rest of them(the defense team) including the murder ( greedy murray) who is s**tting his pants in .
