Murray Trial Final Testimony

Monday, October 31, 2011 - 3:44pm

The jury could soon decide the fate of Dr. Conrad Murray.

The prosecution continued to poke holes in the defense's theory that Michael Jackson could have administered the fatal dose of Propofol to himself Monday in the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

The morning began with tough cross examination of the defense's Propofol expert, Dr. Paul White.

Prosecutor David Walgren pulled no punches hammering white about Conrad Murray's care of Michael Jackson.

"There is no justification for Conrad Murray did in failing to call 911 is there?" Walgren asked.

"As I said earlier, I think he should have called 911 sooner. I however, do not think it would have made any difference in outcome of this case," Dr. White responded.

Walgren then took aim at why Dr. Murray didn't initially tell paramedics that he had given Jackson Propofol.

"It was obviously overlooked," Dr. White said.

The self-proclaimed Propofol expert also admitted that he would have never used Propofol in a similar situation.

"It's something that no amount of money could convince me to accept or take on the responsibility because of time, because of just the responsibility for someone and the fact that this was a complete off label use of the drug," White testified.

White acknowledged that he is being paid by the defense but says he doesn't expect to get his normal fees.

Soon jurors will have to decide if Dr. White's testimony casts enough doubt for Dr. Murray's acquittal.

Many legal experts say the defense is facing an uphill battle after the prosecution put on a very strong and detailed case.
