Will Dr. Conrad Murray Take the Stand at Michael Jackson Death Trial?
ABC News’ Kaitlyn Folmer and Michael S. James report:
With the end of his involuntary manslaughter trial almost at hand, Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, may yet take the stand in his own defense.
After Murray’s lawyers told the court they expect to conclude the evidence phase of the trial Tuesday, Judge Michael Pastor again advised Murray of his right to testify.
He responded, “I understand,” and affirmed he realized that should he testify, he would be subject to cross examination by the prosecutors.
“I have not yet made this decision,” Murray said.
When asked why not, Murray said he was still “waiting to see how the case goes.”
Pastor said he will give Murray until Tuesday morning to decide.
