Dr. Conrad Murray will not testify in his defense

Although on Monday Dr. Conrad Murray told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor he wasn’t sure he would testify in his own defense in the manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson, because it “depends on how the case progresses,” late yesterday afternoon he finally made his decision, telling the judge he would not testify. His announcement brought an end to the defense’s case, which presented several character witnesses and two medical experts over the past week. A total of 49 witnesses have testified for both sides during the 22-day trial. Closing arguments will begin Thursday morning. Murray, who has pleaded not guilty, is facing up to four years imprisonment, as well as losing his medical licence, if he’s convicted.

    Too bad, it would have been interesting to hear what he had to say. But I think he knows the prosecution would have crucified him.
